After World War II and during the Troubles, a wave of Irish Travellers—wanderers akin to the Romani—moved to England to make a better, safer life. They found places to settle down, but then, as Occupy was taking over Wall Street and London, the vocal Dale Farm community in Essex was evicted from their land.
