You might think that the eviction on Friday 27 November of the ‘magic roundabout’ Vestas camp, Newport, Isle of Wight, would be a sombre occasion but these pictures by David Smith show that it was anything but. We have a lot to celebrate, even if the owners have got a court order to have the camp removed. The camp has been a mainstay of the campaign by Vestas workers for their jobs, and a place where valuable lessons in campaigning, politics and camaraderie have been gained. Not everyone gets it, of course, but if you spent time there this summer and autumn you will know what we mean!
