Meriden green belt protesters have maintained their vigil to protest against an illegal gypsy site for 1000 days.
Villagers protesting against an illegal gypsy site near Solihull say they won't take down their protest camp.
Residents in Warwickshire who have been demonstrating against an illegal gypsy site will today mark 700 days of protest.
A group of Gypsies living on an illegal site have lodged an appeal against a High Court Judgment, which ordered them to leave the land in Meriden.
The group lost their High Court battle last month but Solihull Council agreed the Gypsies could stay for another year.
Now the Gypsies are appealing the decision, mainly on Human Rights grounds.
The land has been used as a temporary gypsy site for the past two years.
Since then a group of residents have kept a 24 hour vigil outside, to prevent any unlawful building on the greenbelt land.
But the villagers have been told that their protest camp is also illegal and must come down.
The Meriden gypsies and Sollihull Borough Council have agreed a compromise deal at the High Court in Birmingham.
The gypsies now have 12 months to leave the site.
Gypsies who illegally built a caravan site on greenbelt land in Warwickshire have lost an appeal for them to stay.

The latest appeal from gypsies, who built a camp on greenbelt land in Warwickshire, has been dismissed at the High Court in Birmingham today.
Their application was to appeal the decision that meant they would be asked to leave the land.
