First hour: news review: with Labour councillors Paul Smith, cabinet member for housing and Afzal Shah, also housing campaigners Simon Jones and Rick Carey. Bristol City Council goes to court to evict tent city homeless to make way for Ethical Life Festival on College Green. The campaigners have been there for a week and a half. People camping out on College Green in protest at Bristol City Council’s proposed changes to the way they deal with people living in tents and vans face court action to evict them by Saturday - because an ‘Ethical Life Festival’ is due to take place there. The homelessness campaigners were issued with a notice on Tuesday afternoon telling them that the council would be seeking a court order to throw them off the space in front of City Hall. The campaigners have been camped out in front of the council offices for a week and a half, ever since the council launched a consultation on what to do about the city’s growing number of people living in tents and vans throughout Bristol. The campaigners said they want to highlight what they see as a crackdown on people who are forced into vans parked in residential streets across Bristol as a result of the city’s worsening housing crisis.
