Olympic protest declared unlawful
Friday 06 April 2012
Protesters camping at Leyton Marshes in east London to stop the construction of Olympic training facilities have failed to block a High Court eviction order.
Residents opposed to the temporary basketball courts were joined by activists from Occupy London. On Wednesday, a judge ordered them to stop the "unlawful activity" and granted a possession order to Lee Valley Regional Park Authority.
Yesterday, the activists attempted to oppose the order at a hearing in the court, but their efforts failed because none were willing to be named as residing at the camp.
