presentation of the Heritage Site of Stonehenge

From: "adk3" [] To: [] Subject: Information on Stonehenge bad Date: Thu, 11 Sep 1997 16:43:33 +0100 Dear Sirs, As student at the University of Brighton (Tourism Management) I am supposed to prepare a presentation of the Heritage Site of Stonehenge. I would be very pleased to receive some information about this prehistoric monument as well as its huge archeological and cultural importance. Key issues that are now being discussed (car parking, tunnel, visitor facilities etc.), new knowledge of the site, current data and public opinions would be very helpful. Thank you very much for your trouble. Yours sincerely, Anne Klein ===============================

N30 Appeal for Witnesses

From: Subject: [Guilfin] N30 Appeal for Witnesses Date: Tue, 21 Dec 1999 12:35:14 +0000 (GMT) This has just come through. If you've got any photo's from Euston, please contact Danny, and please pass it on to anybody/email lists that might be able to help ... ta I got this from a journalist friend of mine. He got badly beaten up by the police while trying to report on the n30 protests at Euston. He's a really sound guy and he's often one of the only journalists in the national press to present an alternative view of the usual press hysteria. If anyone can help, or if you know anyone that might be able to, please pass it on. Harl --- URGENT APPEAL FOR PHOTOS, VIDEO FOOTAGE AND WITNESSES. My name is Danny Penman and I'm a journalist who's been covering the movement since the M11 campaign. Last week at the Euston riot I was viciously attacked and hospitalised by the police. My right arm was shattered, and is now held together by a steel plate and a dozen bolts. I also had to undergo surgery and will have to undergo at least one more operation. Do you have any videos or photographs of me being attacked or did you see me attacked by the police? I was wearing bright orange trousers with a black cagoul-style jacket (both sadly from Gap!). I am six foot with short black hair. The attacks took place between 7:00 and 7:15 PM. The first took place just after police first attacked the crowd. I was in the north east corner of the park, by the bus stops and Euston Square. I was then driven out of the park to the bus stop area and then further westwards. After leaving the park I was attacked twice more. I was eventually rescued by Kate Adie, of all people. You can reach me on 0850 751575 or email or you could channel information via the RTS or GEN offices. If you are worried about my authenticity, again, contact RTS or GEN. For legal reasons it would really help my case against the police if you could give me your name and some means of contacting you (even if just via email or an intermediary). I know this maybe a little much for some people but the police may be able to get my case against them thrown out if I don't have this info. I really need help on this, the police have deliberately inflicted a lot of pain on me and tried to stop me writing about the issues we all care about, so, if you have any information, please let me know. Please also forward this email to any other email lists you think may be relevant. Thanks. Danny ===============================

From: "ian ferguson" [] To: Subject: [diggers350] CAMPAIGN TO STOP THE INTERNET LEGISLATION ANNOUNCED IN QUEEN'S SPEECH Date: Thu, 02 Dec 1999 13:36:09 GMT Subject: CAMPAIGN TO STOP THE INTERNET LEGISLATION ANNOUNCED IN QUEEN'S SPEECH PRESS RELEASE 17th November 1999 London, UK No embargo CAMPAIGN TO STOP THE INTERNET LEGISLATION ANNOUNCED IN QUEEN'S SPEECH GreenNet, a specialist Internet Services Provider (ISP) for charities and campaign groups, believes the new Internet legislation being proposed by the government is a serious threat to civil rights. It will give the security services sweeping powers to intercept Internet communication and read private e-mail. E-mail 'tapping' will be allowed, and it will be made easier for MI5, MI6, the police and customs to obtain permission to do so. We will be mobilising a range of pressure-groups and activists to mount the strongest possible campaign to prevent these laws being passed. The objections are to the Home Office's proposals to amend the Interception of Communication Act 1985 and some sections of the Department of Trade & Industry's Draft Electronic Communication Bill. We object to: - The fact that the changes have been secretly proposed by the FBI via ILETS (International Law Enforcement Seminar) in closed meetings, since 1993, with no accountabilty to parliaments - (see footnote) - Users of encryption could face two years imprisonment for withholding a key - with the onus on the accused to prove they don't have the key. - The 'named individual' at an ISP who is ordered to place an intercept is liable to five years imprisonment for 'tipping-off'. This would include informing any third party about the intercept. Of most concern to us is the fact that it is likely that police will share information obtained in this country with other police forces worldwide. The justification is partly to 'catch criminals' but in many parts of the world, struggling for basic human rights is labelled criminal. Many overseas activists are regarded as 'criminals' in their own countries. A Greennet spokesperson, Andy Whitmore notes: " As part of a global progressive communications network, the APC, we are concerned that information passed on by British police under the act could be used by repressive regimes to target our users who are struggling for democratic rights." In summary, given the number of Internet users who could be affected by the civil rights and cost implications of the government proposals we expect a large coalition of concerned activists will mobilise to oppose this flawed legislation. To receive further information on the campaign please e-mail: Further information on web: [] For further information contact: Andy Whitmore - 0171 713 1941 - Karen Banks - 0171 713 1941 - ========= Footnote: ILETS (International Law Enforcement Telecommunications Seminar) is a US-led (and FBI funded) police and security organisation. The ILETS seminars brought together police from 20 countries, who have been meeting regularly for seven years. ILETS has had its plans adopted as EU policy and enacted into, or being considered for, legislation in a growing number of countries. ILET's plan, Enfopol 19, was agreed by an EU police working party in March and was proposed to EU Justice and Home Affairs ministers in May 1999. The proposals include a requirement that all Internet and telecommunication providers install monitoring equipment in their premises. ______________________________________________________ ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Home: - Simplifying group communications ========================== ===============================

Perhaps you would like to make a case for the alteration you propose. Such an approach would be considered carefully before almost certainly being rejected on the grounds that it is part of an unholy/unnecessary correspondence. If however you are suggesting I can physically do something to remove those carbuncular highways then I have to tell you your enquiry is misdirected, try the Department of Environment Transport and the Regions.

Ozrics Roly Obituary

From: Ozrics website Date: Wed, 15 Dec 1999 09:16:19 GMT It is with great sadness that we have to announce the death of Roly Wynne,original Ozrics' bass player, and brother of guitarist, Ed. Roly had been suffering from problems for many years and tragically took hisown life two weeks ago. Roly was a pivitol member of the Ozric Tentacles, and played on their first nine albums. His intricate bass lines were the basis for many Ozrics classics, and displayed a musically intelligence akin to his brothers. Check out Og-Ha-Be(Tantric Obstacles),Yaboop Yaboop(Sliding Gliding Worlds) and Tidal Convergence&Snakepit(Erpland) in particular to fully appreciate Roly's adventurous yet organic fluidity. Roly's last gig with the Ozrics was in 1992. He then went on to form "Damidge" with Seaweed and Rad, who themselves went on to join the Ozrics following Merv and Joie's departures. Roly has guested on many releases over the years including the O'roonies and Divine Soma Experience. His most recent band "Escalator" hadn't yet put out any recordings. Anyone wishing to send a tribute can do so to Simon at Stretchy - ===============================

The photos show Men an Tol and Lanyon Quoit ablaze.

From: King Arthur Pendragon [] Block Sender To: Subject: [diggers350] Damage at Men an Tol Date: Tue, 9 Nov 1999 14:27:24 +0000 Date: Tue, 9 Nov 1999 13:58:23 +0000 To: From: Karin Attwood [] Subject: Damage at Men an Tol In message Andy Norfolk [] writes Hi all I've just had a disturbing phone call from the local newspaper, The Cornishman. They have received a letter and photos from a group calling itself "Friends of the Stone". The photos show Men an Tol and Lanyon Quoit ablaze. The letter says that stolen napalm was used on the sacred night of November 5th. It goes on to say that the monuments have been mistreated by others and should be destroyed. It says Men an Tol will be removed within a week to a private garden and Lanyon Quoit reduced to rubble and if steps are taken to prevent this there will be more fires. Men an Tol is now partially coated with something that looks like the resin used with fibre glass. From the way the letter is phrased it sounds as though this person/group is from outside the area. The archaeologists and police are aware of this threat. I've just spoken to a Cornishman reporter who has visited the sites this morning with the police - he says that both monuments are badly burnt and look horrible. Even if this person/group can't actually destroy the sites they are quite capable of causing serious damage. Has anyone heard of this group? If anyone is in the area can they please keep an eye open for odd goings on and make notes of car registration numbers. If anyone can think of other things to do then please do them. I'll keep you informed of any further developments.

From:, Subject: Re: Columbus day Meditation, 4pm Date: Thu, 7 Oct 1999 19:33:51 +0900 (JST) ~~~~~~How Should We Remember Columbus?~~~~~~~ Next Monday, October 11th, is Columbus Day. For many, this is a day to celebrate an outstanding European discovery, for others it marks the beginning of 500 years of European invasion and conquest. Approximately 10 million Native people lived here in the Americas when Columbus arrived. Their communities, customs, languages and religions thrived. By 1900, their populations had been reduced to about 100,000. Today, although populations have bounced back, many Indian reservations continue to have high rates of poverty, unemployment and despair.

My brother Paul and I went to Wandsworth to see dad, and we enjoyed to spend the afternoon talking to him after we had not seen him for quite a long time. Our fathers love of music has definately passed on to us, we have inherited his celtic heritage. One day I hope to visit Ireland which is where his family is from. I do not know how many other brothers and sisters we now have, the only other children I ever met were a son called Crinan, and another son called Gildas, both of whom I have no idea where they are. John also talked to us about his youngest children when we met with him, it would be nice to know them as well. L Maria Dice George wrote: is a webpage about john, ===============================

The Abuse of Children, both young AND old!

From: Nick [] To: Subject: The Abuse of Children, both young AND old! Date: Sun, 28 Mar 1999 18:48:52 Hello from EcoTort! In response to the NSPCC "full stop" campaign, it may be appropriate to offer a thesis which relates fundamental principles of law to environmental issues. The conclusions reached are potentially far-reaching; and if pursued, would forseeably be of considerable benefit to both children and adults, with the likleyhood of much reduced levels of general and chronic stress in our society, and a consequent further likley reduction in violence, INCLUDING THAT INFLICTED UPON CHILDREN.

I think that last year's problem might be avoided if

From: Harlequin [[ To: Subject: Stronehenge Campaign Meeting Date: Sun, 03 Oct 1999 21:42:02 +0000 George, I wasn't able to make it to the last Campaign meeting and it looks like I won't be able to make it this month. I have some ideas but I first wanted to know what the current situation is with the Police and EH. In essence, I think that last year's problem might be avoided if people are encouraged to set up camp at least three miles away, as we did when the exclusion zone was in force. This would make it less likely that persons not interested in worship would bother to walk to the Stones for dawn. Perhaps some form of entertainment could be provided to keep that element entertained and distracted and/or persons placed in the vicinity of the car park to direct people to the site. I would also suggest dropping the "Free the Stones" motto (and possibly the "party" concept, unless remote entertainment is provided as suggested above) in future publicity as they are suggestive of political demonstrations and piss-ups to the exclusion of respectful worship. There is a place for such things, but Stonehenge is primarily a church, not a battleground or a rave venue. I also note that the sunrise gathering has only become prominent over the past 15 years. Might not things be better if we returned to an attempt to reinstate afternoon celebrations/ceremonies as in the festival days? I'd be grateful if you could raise these suggestions at the next meeting (or the one after, if this fails to reach your attention in time) if I do not manage to turn up myself.

The sort of homes we should be building for the future need to be affordable, well-designed and sustainable - not the sort of executive homes for commuters and their cars that are being built all over the countryside."The HBF is the house building lobby group.

To anyone who can help My name is Amey kazymerchyk and I'm travelling right now with my film partner Velcrow Ripper. We are independent film makers from Vancouver Canada working on a feature length documentary entitled SCAREDSACRED. It is an independent film funded by Canadian Arts Councils. We were recently at an eclipse party where we met a woman by the name of Karen Evans. I bought a book of hers entitled A guide to tree proteseting in anyway it was really exciting because before we left to start the film in august we were working closely with environmental organizations-PATH and Western Canadian Wilderness commitee. In 1996 Velcrow completed a documentary entitled Bones of the Forest, on logging in British blah blah..In her book she has many comics about living near st.georges hill, and the past of the Diggers. We feel this is a really important part of SCARED PRESENT AND SACRED PRESENT. The duality of destruction, and the hope of activism and trying to create change. To make a super long story short we are going to make it over to england for the gathering september 3-6 and are wondering how to get to stroud from london. We are also interested in opening up some dialogue to explore environmental and political activism in britain. We plan to be in England for September. Hope to talk to you soon.(Below is a synopsis of the film) Cheers!
Much respect Amey Kayzmerchyk

mayburgh a 25 ton modern granite obelisk at the

    Date: Mon, 16 Aug 1999 22:43:40 +0100
    From: "Andy Burnham"

Dear Stone Circle Webring members,
I hope you won't object to hearing about this piece of important news.

Details are coming through of a proposal by Eden Arts (Eden District
Council) to build and part-fund a 25 ton modern granite obelisk at the
entrance to Mayburgh Henge, the Neolithic henge monument on the edge of the
Lake District in Cumbria.

I am horrified to hear about this, which is inappropriate at such an
important prehistoric site. There is only one stone remaining of the circle
as it is. What's left doesn't need overshadowing by a modern structure. Just
because people Christianised these sites hundreds of years ago doesn't mean
it's acceptable now.

Please forward this message on to anyone you think might be able to help.
Perhaps some of the people in the US who supported the campaign for the
Florida circle could now help us!

Mayburgh Henge (sometimes spelt Mayborough) consists of a huge circular bank
of small boulders, with a single standing stone remaining in the centre. In
the mid 19th century four stones were reported here, along with four more
flanking the entrance to the henge. The stones that make up the bank average
around 100mm in diameter and are boulders of the sort found at the bottom of
glacial valleys, The bank is estimated to contain 1 million stones, and must
have taken thousands of
man-hours to build. There is a picture on my web site at

Justin, who lives locally writes:

    the problem is apparently that English Heritage have no
jurisdiction outside the circumference of the henge itself, even just
outside the entrance . When I visited Eden Arts to discuss their plans, I
suggested that they may have a problem at the planning permission stage, due
to vociferous local opposition, However, they were happy to inform me that
there would likely be no need for planning consent as the construction would
require no foundations or engineering work. I suppose a twenty five ton
block of granite stays pretty much where you stick it.

The symbols will apparently be an "Alpha" an "Omega" a Christian,
(Celtic?) cross and the number 2000.   inspired.  It will only cost

They also informed me that inhabitants of Eamont Bridge parish would be
consulted. Thanks for any support. Please e-mail, write or fax to express
your concern and ask for information. Let them know, people outside of
Eamont Bridge parish actually do give a damn.

The article:

Cumberland News, August 6th 1999.

Headline:  Memorial "to last 1,000 years"

By-line:  Mary Ingham, Penrith reporter.


Eden councillors have backed a plan to mark the millennium with a
30-tonne granite memorial designed to last for at least another 1,000
But one member claimed it would be "cultural vandalism" to place a
Christian monument at the proposed site - a field containing the
Neolithic Mayburgh Henge at Eamont Bridge, near Penrith.
the £17,500 memorial has been devised by the organisers of next summer's
millennium festival, part of which will be held at the Henge, and it will
be dedicated during the event.
It will be made out of a solid block of Shap granite, standing 12ft and
weighing 25 to 30 tonnes.
The organisers say the memorial will last at least another 1,000 years
and will be inscribed with symbols and inscriptions highlighting the
Christian significance of the millennium.
The festival company will pay half the cost and once it is wound up,
Eden Council will take over ownership of the memorial.
At its recent meeting, Eden's works and leisure committee agreed to pay
the remaining £8,750, subject to planning and other consents.
Brian Nicholls, (Penrith Carleton, Lib Dem) said he was happy with the
principle of a millennium monument, but not with the site.
"Isn't is cultural vandalism to stick a Christian symbol on a non-
Christian site?" he asked.  "You would not put a cross on top of a
Bryan Metz (Alston Moor, Ind) said there was a long tradition of
Christians putting monuments on ground previously used by other
Bernard Thornburrow (Tebay with Orton, Ind) said Canon Markham, who is
leading the organisation of the festival, had done a lot of research
into the suitability of the site.

(StoneForm)  Well, I work at Stonehenge, and although I agree that the access to
the stones is not ideal, I believe that there is really no need to stress out
the EH staff. Like on the solstice morning, I was the one who had to pick up all
the dog shit, condoms, fag ends and the bottle of methadone - really, when
people leave this kind of crap lying around it begs for condemnation! The way to
protest? In my humble opinion, I think you need to aim your sights higher.

eclipse of the sun

Total Eclipse of the Sun August 11, 1999 Cornwall UK, Europe, and Asia The final total solar eclipse of the millennium, in 1999 (there is none in 2000) is a once-in-a-lifetime chance for millions of people to see the most spectacular astronomical phenomenon there is. On Wednesday, August 11, 1999, a total eclipse of the Sun will be visible from the Isles of Scilly, the Cornish mainland, Alderney in the Channel Islands, much of mainland Europe, the Middle East and south Asia. Apart from Finland in 1990, the last total eclipse in Europe was in 1961; and not since 1927 has the United Kingdom mainland seen a total eclipse. This is truly an occasion not to be missed. Although the chances of clear skies are not excellent, for the "stay-at-home" not willing to roam the world looking for eclipses, this is the last chance to observe a total eclipse in the British Isles before the 23rd of September 2090. Yes, 2090! Even Europe will not see such an event again until 2081. This page from summarises some information on the event, and explains where to go to get the best view of the eclipse. A listing of other future eclipses up to 2020 (and, in the UK, to 2151) is also available, to put this into context.

cavanagh was at solstice, disgusted by police

Date: Fri, 6 Aug 1999 05:44:13 -0700 (PDT) Hi. I'll get around to sending you some stamps soon! I was at Stonehenge at the Solstice, was not involved in bringing the fence down, but did enter the Stone Circle. I was disgusted by the response of the Police, and especially by the 'security guards' who I saw punching people who were sitting on the floor. The attitude of the Police was beyond contempt, although they were more restrained than at other such incidents. The reason that the Police gave for evicting the crowd from the Stones was that 'invited people' wished to begin a ceremony. Fair enough. But why couldn't representatives from English Heritage, pagan groups, druids have simply ASKED people to respect the ceremony? I'm sure most people would have done, given that I was treated with respect and love by all present (bar the Police). It is also worth bearing in mind that the Police prevented those people with tickets from reaching the stones before dawn, so what was the point in evicting everyb! ody? I have written to English Heritage, Jack Straw and my MP outlining my concerns over the site and access to it. I have received a reasonably encouraging reply from Sir Jocelyn Stevens, to which my MP will be replying in due course. There is a way forward, and I sincerely hope that by the Solstice of next year we will have found a solution so that as many people as possible can have access to the stones. I hope to see you at Stonehenge for the festival! Take care. (From) Paul Cavanagh (Email)

sacred-land My basic position is that all land is sacred

From: "mcstone.ancientmod." Reply-To: Subject: [diggers350] land ownership Date: Wed, 28 Jul 1999 19:13:28 +0100 Hi, I'm kind of jumping into the middle of this debate so excuse me if I've missed a point. The question is I think 'should private land ownership be abolished ?' My basic position is that all land is sacred (but some portions of land are more sacred than others). Land ownership must somehow be connected or equated with what we call civilization. The point that I'm trying to make is that the assumption that private land ownership is somehow the beast we should be excising could well be wrong. Public land ownership is often a far worse thing. That is because the will of the public is corrupted by the powerful. The millenium dome , or new roads are salient examples. Near me, (and you if in the UK) is an RAF base where nuclear missiles are kept to wage war on unidentifiable foreign enemies. To all intents and purposes the land where this goes on is in 'public ownership' . Surely ownership of land means a duty of care for that land. Not altogether a bad thing, so long as that caveat is observed. Sadly it's widely abused by that very same thing 'civilization' in my opinion. Yours Hengist McStone Ps if anybody has any definition of civilization I'd like to hear it. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ home:

kett Press release TLIO Ketts' Rebellion land

From: "Rory Kett" Reply-To: To: Subject: [diggers350] Press release TLIO Ketts' Rebellion land occupation Date: Fri, 09 Jul 1999 09:37:49 GMT Press release... The Land Is Ours (Norfolk group media liasion Rory Bowskill) Tel 0961 460171 (TLIO mobile from 10th July 1999) Pager 01523 773915 Email: EMBARGO 00:01 Saturday 10th July 1999 ROBERT KETT IS BACK!!! 450 years after Ketts' rebellion once again people will be setting up a camp on land near Norwich to reclaim land for the people. We will be taking over a piece of land near Norwich on the afternoon of Saturday 10th July. This event is being organised by the Norfolk Group & East Anglian regional group of 'The Land Is Ours'. This will be an attempt to create a more sustainable future on a site which is currently derelict. We seek to make people aware of how the land was stolen from the people by force, in effect 'ethnic cleansing', and how those who claim to 'own' land often mis-use it while denying others, who could do something there the opportunity. The site selected for this occupation is being kept secret until members of the group have taken possession of it and begun setting up camp. Why are we doing it? Our first aim is to commemmerate the events of 1549. When around 20,000 people in East Anglia tried to defend their ancient rights to the commons against the enclosures. Which not only privatised the land, but also led to forced evictions and what would now be called 'ethnic cleansing' in Britain. Around 4,500 East Anglians were killed defending their rights to land. Secondly: We are seeking to highlight the fact that in Britain the vast majority of people are still excluded from ANY rights over land. Thirdly: By our actions we hope to show that ordinary people can often be better stewards of the land than those who currently hold it. Notes for the Editor: 1) In a single day in August 1549 over 3,000 people were killed in Norwich for resisting being forced from their lands, this is comparable with any single act of 'ethnic cleansing' carried out on the orders of Milosovich in Kosavo. 2) We claim the same right of return to land as the Kosavo Albanians. 3) Large ammounts of property in Norwich is currently laying empty while people sleep on the streets, also large acerages of Norfolk are in unproductive 'set-aside'. 4) The distribution of land in Britain is comparable with many third world countries. 5) The Land Is Ours campaigns for rights to land for ALL, not the few who happen to be descended from thieves and murdurers. In 1549 Kett issued a list of 29 demands, now we are issuing ours... WE DEMAND: 1) No more "Keep out - Private property" signs 2) An end to all forelock tugging 3) Social housing not luxury housing 4) No more golf forces for the few 5) To no longer be "tresspassers in the land of our birth" 6) Land for people instead of GM deserts 7) Freedom to roam over uncultivated land, not herding into "country parks" 8) Village stores, not out of town superstores 9) The freedom to open gates, the responsibility to close them afterwards 10) No littering of the land and sea (Sellafield take note) 11) Stop dogs worrying SHEEP & FOXES 12) The right to take the road less travvelled 13) The protection and promotion of allottments 14) The use of inner city land to house the homeless, not for executive flats 15) Turning derelict land in cities into community gardens 16) Sustainable human settlements 17) Access to land for everyday recreation 18)Hedgerows, not monoculture prairies 19) People before cars 20) People before minerals 21) Gatherings not aggregates 22) Trees before tarmac 23) Reclaim the streets 24) Defence of council housing 25) An end to harrassment of travellers and boat dwellers 26) Work on the land, not just McJobs 27) Experience, not consumption 28) Refugees right to return 29) The Land Is Ours, and we demand access for EVERYONE, irrespective of race, age or gender.

nme-cornwall Festival-goers heading for Cornwall this summer could face a Criminal Justice Act clampdown


Festival-goers heading for Cornwall this summer could face a Criminal Justice Act clampdown enforced by the army because local authorities fear August's solar eclipse celebrations will develop into scores of illicit raves.

Police say they're expecting up to four million people to descend on the county to celebrate the event and are now formulating a strategy with the military to cope with the crowds.

Plans for a legal ten-day, 16,000-capacity Eclipse Festival at Carlyon Bay near St Austell, which is being held from August 6-15, are now being finalised, with major dance acts - including Prodigy - expected to be announced soon. Last year, Megadog organised a 10,000-capacity festival on the same site from August 14-16.

But fallout from the festival, which could include impromptu unofficial raves organised by revellers, is worrying the authorities and landowners.

Sergeant Richard Price of Devon & Cornwall Police said his force, along with the help of the military, would consider enforcing the controversial Criminal Justice Act to clear any unlicensed 'raves', a term used by the act to cover any outdoor party where 'repetitive beats' can be heard.

The act was partly created to deal with the illegal rave boom of the late-'80s/early-'90s and gives police the power to shut down such unlicensed outdoor events and arrest people involved in them.

Sgt Price said: "The powers do exist for us to use if we wish to. We will recognise the powers are there and any illegal gatherings will be dealt with in a manner which will be appropriate at the time."

But according to a local newspaper reporter, who did not wish to be named, the situation was becoming increasingly worrying.

He said: "Everyone's shitting themselves. There is a load of opposition from the residents. Carlyon Bay is quite an upmarket, toffee-nosed area, the residents are pretty pissed off, especially as this one is over ten days.

"Last year a lot of problems were caused by a load of travellers who came down and held an unofficial event two or three miles away from the site. They caused a lot of disruption.

"If you're talking about ten days, then they're going to be coming in a couple of days before that and God knows how long it's going to take for them to clear off."

Local landowner Tony Geake is warning that festival-goers who don't book into official festival campsites face a battle with Cornish farmers.

He said: "There was so much trouble last year, the police informed us that with anything on private property you've got to take civil action. All we can do is put as many obstacles in the gateway as we can, such as concrete blocks or trailers to stop people coming in."

But Eclipse promoter James Sherlock of Manchester-based Night Time Concerts, claims his festival will help authorities cope with crowds.

He said: "They seem to think that if they don't grant us a licence it will stop 16,000 people going down to the beach, but it's not going to do that. In reality, it could do with ten people putting concerts on.

"If you think that ten per cent of the people that are going to come down are young people looking to go to concerts and parties, then what's being provided is nowhere near enough."

The local Restormel Borough Council is holding a meeting on March 4 to discuss Night Time Concerts' licence application.

A number of DJs have already been confirmed for Eclipse, including Judge Jules and Paul Oakenfold. Fat Les will also make their debut live appearance.

Meanwhile, Glastonbury Festival promoter Michael Eavis has denied further problems would be caused by travellers and festival-goers staying on at his Shepton Mallet site after June 27 and then slowly making their way down to Cornwall.

He said: "The whole travellers scene is gone. At its height in 1990 we had 400 travellers' vehicles staying on at our site, last year we had just 12 and when we asked them to leave, they left. We won't be letting anyone stay on our site after the festival is over."

Do you fancy going tio a party and being evicted at the point of an army rifle? Or should they be issued with live ammo and ordered to shoot crusties on sight? Tell us what you think. Post a message on Angst!

caos After holding my regular Sabbat meeting at Stonehenge for Midsummer I was disgusted at the overt police presence there

From: "Simon Rice" To: Subject: Stonehenge in Chains Date: Tue, 29 Jun 1999 19:01:37 +0100 Dear Sir, After holding my regular Sabbat meeting at Stonehenge for Midsummer I was disgusted at the overt police presence there, the utter disdain that they held for anything out of the ordinary, against their definition of what is "normal". My group then moved to Avebury, and witnessed a similar spectacle there, although in this case the police were in smaller numbers and frightened silly by a group of spiritualists and travellers! I'd like to offer my help, and that of my group, if we can aid in any way the opening of Stonehenge for more mystical events such as the Sabbats. Visit the URL below if you would like to know more about us, but we would be willing to help in any way to further this most worthy of causes. We don't feel that a position of apathy and acceptance is good enough in the face of open bigotry and religious descrimination, and want to make a difference. Best regards, and heartiest congratulations for the good work, Spectre, Archangel of CAOS Clan of Anarchy and the Occult Supernatural

chris I've always figured celebrations were calculated as "the dawn following the time of the astrological solstice"

Subject: To the Stones -- Summer Solstice 99 Date: Mon, 14 Jun 1999 20:31:11 +0100 Hi George, Urmm. I've always figured celebrations were calculated as "the dawn following the time of the astrological solstice" and so a little confused why your site mentions some folks will be marking Monday's dawn rather than Tuesday's. Any idea which date is 'preferred' by the Campaign (and I guess, the darlings at EH)? Also, as the constabulary's position seems vague, do you know of any meeting place prior to heading for the Stones for the dawn, or think it's likely we'll get away with assembling in the droveway without harassment? Your thoughts would be valued, as always, Chris. ps. Your site -- wow, is it getting big! -- is wonderful: educational, informative, inspiring. A fantastic documentary. Congratulations and thanks.

Subject: Solstice Date: Fri, 11 Jun 1999 17:40:49 +0100 Text version of leaflet Rollo intends to hand out on 21st. Comments?? P.A. STONEHENGE 1999 Happy solstice ! Blessed Be ! We would like to explain what is happening today. Although the Lord Chancellor's ruling makes it legally possible to approach Stonehenge:- We are only too aware that a lot of people will not be allowed in the circle this year. This is because English Heritage has restricted access to the Stones to those who applied in advance only. Please help us to have these restrictions on public access removed by notjumping or damaging the fence, as this would jeopardise our ability to persuade English Heritage to adopt an open access policy for the future. If all goes well this year and there is no trouble, E.H. will make arrangements for greater access at next year's summer solstice. Our ancient right of freedom of assembly on the highway and elsewhere only exists provided our assembly is not " unreasonably large, unreasonably prolonged, or unreasonably obstructive. " This right has only just been won back, we do not wish to lose it again, or have to return to the days of the so-called exclusion zone. For this reason the druid ceremony in the Stones has been deliberately shortened so that we can join with you in celebrating the Solstice outside the Stones, until ways are found to admit everyone in future. Many of those granted access this morning have spent ten years outside lobbying for druid and pilgrim access. We believe in access for all. Let's convince the world that we are all peaceful enough to be allowed back in. .

With love Palden editor, AvalonArticulates --------------------------------------------------- CHANGING LANDSCAPES by Will Glenn Since birth, 51 years ago, I have witnessed many changes to the landscape. One of my earliest memories is when I was three years old, sitting on my grandfather's shoulders, and being told to "Be quiet, and watch that stoat take that rabbit." My grandfather showed me a lot of the countryside around Woburn Abbey, where he worked as gamekeeper. I used to watch the deer, badgers and the other wildlife that lived in the park. Gramp taught me how to use and extend my senses in order to get a better insight into what was around me. Over the years I saw things that were not quite right, and I didn't have any answers. Then, in 1962, a book was published, and that Christmas my mum gave me the book as a gift. I don't think she ever knew what a big gift it was. The book was 'Silent Spring' by the late Rachel Carson. It answered most of the questions that were going around in my head at the time, but not all. The rest would be answered with age and maturity. Thirty-seven years on, and we still have not learned the lessons Rachel taught. Then, in the early 60s, she was vilified by the agro-chemical industry for the 'stories of doom' that she was apparently telling. .........

naked Protest naked for the right to be naked in public. Outside Buckingham Palace.

From: vincent bethell Subject: Tuesday 8th JUNE 2.00pm - Buckingham Palace Protest Date: Thu, 27 May 1999 09:19:32 -0700 (PDT) THE FREEDOM TO BE YOURSELF! Protest naked for the right to be naked in public. 2.00pm Tuesday 8th June 1999 - Outside Buckingham Palace. The Holistic approach looks at the whole situation. All problems have a root/cause: the human mind. People are very unhappy because they cannot be themselves. People are forced to hide parts of their body, they are not accepted for who and what they are. Look at any problem and you will find that the root/cause of this problem is the human mind. The protest is a peaceful, happy, cheerful occasion. The protest is human Rights based, we wish to legalise nonsexual public nudity. In justification of our actions we will cite ARTICLE 10 (Freedom of expression) from THE EUROPEAN CONVENTION FOR THE PROTECTION OF HUMAN RIGHTS AND FUNDAMENTAL FREEDOMS. We consider present laws to be inhuman, oppressive, repressive and unjust. There is no rational reason for present laws that force people to hide their bodies. The protesters just want to be accepted for who and what they are - we desire the freedom to be ourselves. If you are not allowed to be yourself your personality will become twisted, you will become unnatural and unreal: this entails the many symptoms of an unhappy, sick and unnatural society. The protesters resent the irrational bureaucracy that forces us to hide our bodies, we just want to be natural and true to nature, we just want to be true to ourselves. The protest addresses all problems; a lasting solution can only be achieved by addressing the the root/cause of the problem, the protest seeks to solve all problems. WE DESIRE THE FREEDOM TO BE OURSELVES! Protest naked for the right to be naked in public, celebrate the beauty of life, be part of this happy occasion and celebrate the beauty of the human being. Publicity is essential, I thank you for your help. If you are hesitant about protesting, come to the protest as a spectator, nevertheless once you see the strength of support you will be sure to stand up for your rights. We are estimating 100-200 protesters who will be protesting naked for the right to be naked in public. Irrational inhuman laws are unstable; the protest WILL achieve its goal: we will change laws and gain the right to be naked in public! 2.00pm Tuesday 8th June 1999 - Outside Buckingham Palace. I hope that you will decide to stand up for your rights: Protest! The freedom to be Yourself Vincent Bethell.

nac Meeting of : Northern Area Committee Date: I5th April 1999 Subject: Stonehenge Summer Solstice I999

OPEN - FOR GENERAL RELEASE Agenda item 9 Meeting of : Northern Area Committee Date: I5th April 1999 Report of: Solicitor to the Council Subject: Stonehenge Summer Solstice I999 1. INTRODUCTION 1.1 The purpose of this report is to explain to Members of the Committee why an order prohibiting the holding of all trespassory assemblies on land adjoining the Monument at Stonehenge during the Summer Solstice period will not be made this year. 2. BACKGROUND 2.1 In recent years the Chief Constable of Wiltshire has applied to the Council for prohibition orders under the Public Order Act 1986 as amended (`the Act'). 3. SUMMER SOLSTICE 1999 3.1 This year, however, the Chief Constable of Wiltshire has written to the Council explaining why she does not intend to apply for a Trespassory Assembly Order for the Summer Solstice period in I999. A copy of the Chief Constable's letter is appended to this report. 4. FURTHER PROGRESS 4.1 You will note that the Chief Constable's letter maps out the furrher progress made to achieving normality with Stonehenge during the Sumnmer Solstice period by allowing anyone with a specific interest in Stonehenge access but without a recurrence of the problems that have arisen in the past. This has been achieved by sustained constructive dialogue between English Heritage; the Wiltshire Police and most of the groups interested in Stonehenge and the performing of rituals there. 5. RECENT HOUSE OF LORDS JUDGMENT 5.1 The Chief Constable's principal reason for not applying for an Order is based on a recent House of Lords judgment. Facts 5.2 Further to a Trespassory Assembly Order made by the Council in I995 relating to the monument at Stonehenge, the defendants in the case were arrested and subsequently convicted of taking part in a `trespassory assembly' under sl4(B)(2) of the Act. The central issue 5.3 The central issue turned on the question of what were the "limits" of the public's right of access to the public highway. The judgment 5.4 The majority decision of the House of Lords (3:2) allowed the defendants' appeal. 5.5 The Lord Chancellor espoused the view that the law today should recognise that the public highway was a public place on which all manner of reasonable activities might go on. In his opinion, provided those activities were reasonable, did not involve the commission of a public or private nuisance and did not amount to an obstruction of the highway unreasonably impeding the primary right of the general public to pass and repass they should not constitute a trespass. Subject to those qualifications there would be a right of peaceful assembly on the highway. 5.6 The Lord Chancellor said that the public highway was a public place that the public might enjoy for any reasonable purpose. In every case the Magistrates' Court had to decide as a matter of fact and degree whether the use had been reasonable and not inconsistent with the right to pass and repass. ............................................................ Miss Elizabeth Neville QPM MA PhD CHIEF CONSTABLE OF WILTSHIRE Police Headquarters London Road, Devizes, SN10 2DN Tel: 01380 72234l Fax: 0I380 734176 24 March 1999 Dear Richard [Chief Executive, SDC] I am writing to you in respect of arrangements for the 1999 Summer Solstice. During 1998 English Heritage and the Wiltshire Police continued a constructive dialogue with most of the groups who had consistently shown interest in Stonehenge and in the performing of rituals there. This rapport was extended through the granting of access to the monument on notable dates, particularly the Winter Solstice and the Equinoxes. Things had progressed suffciently well to allow access to be granted for the Summer Solstice to a group of 100 who had applied to English Heritage. This group included local residents as well as astronomers, archaeologists, druids, pagans and travellers. The event passed off peacefully and was deemed a success. Since then further progress has been made. There have been regular meetings with representatives of groups interested in Stonehenge and there continues to be regular access to the monument. This culminated with 208 celebrants being granted access for last weekend's Spring Equinox, all of whom left peacefully at the conclusion of the celebrations. The recent House of Lords judgement in the case of DPP v Jones & Lloyd has caused me to reconsider my views on the appropriateness of a Trespassory Assembly Order under Section 14A of the Public Order Act 1986. In that judgement, Lord Irvine articulated the public's right to use the public highway for any reasonable purpose providing it does not cause a nuisance or obstruction. In view of this judgement, I do not intend to apply for a Trespassory Assembly Order for the Summer Solstice period in 1999. Our policing strategy will encompass this most recent decision, the need to protect the Stonehenge site and to facilitate access for those entitled to it. I am of the view that my decision presents a significant opportunity for all those who have a deep interest in Stonehenge and the celebration of the Summer Solstice. It is hoped that we have moved on from the days of confrontation and mass policing. However, the onus will rest on those who intend to come to Stonehenge for the Solstice. The policing operation will ensure a positive response from my officers should any incidents of disorder occur over the Solstice period. Furthermore, any outbreak of disorder would jeopardise the very real progress that has been made. It would, in all probability mean that I would have to revert to the use of the powers available to me under the Public Order Act, 1986 during the Millenium Year, in particular those significant calendar events commencing with New Year's Day, 2000. I would also like to assure you that should I receive any intelligence to suggest that there may be planned incidents of disorder or trespass I will then consider making an emergency application for a Trespassory Assembly Order. I trust that will not be the case and that this Summer Solstice will not only prove to be an enjoyable and peaceful event, but also the herald of a new period of tranquil and harmonious celebrations at Stonehenge. Yours sincerely [Elizabeth] R K Sheard Esq Chief Executive Salisbury District Council The Council House Bourne Hill Salisbury Wiltshire SPI 3UZ

burro "I'm an undiscovered pop star, is'nt everyone?"

From: (SLOTERDIJK) To: (Dice George) Subject: Re: Stonehenge & Free festivals Date: Thu, 15 Apr 1999 13:29:04 -0400 (EDT) Hey Dice George, thanks for the URL's. I enjoyed perousing your page. I especially liked your quote "I'm an undiscovered pop star, is'nt everyone?" I'm a professional musician myself, playing an eclectic mix of styles for 15 years now. Although I devote quite a bit of studio time to my electronic/trance/"space rock", project, SLOTERDIJK ( means end point in dutch, pronounced slOter-dIke), I am currently preparing for a short solo acoustic tour of the northeast U.S., under my other pseudonym, ARTIMUS. One of the reasons I wrote to you about Free Festivals, Stonehenge etc, is because I reside part time in The Netherlands, and I'm thinking about coming to England in the Fall ( around Fall Equinox). I'm looking for like minded musicians/artists etc, with whom I might connect with. I'm also searching for some sort of gathering where I might be able to play, either solo, or as a collaborator, back up etc, either in the genre of elecronics ( though it might be too costly to transport all my equipment), or acoustics. I have released two independent offering here in the states, with decent success, i.e. I sold out of all the tapes, and am currently planning on reissuing them. I also have quite a bit of new "Space Rcok" material, which I plan on taking to the stage here in the U.S. at a festival due to take place in late July. Here in the states, my "scene", is quite small, and it appears that what I'm trying to get more involved with, is still quite a lively thing in England, what with Stonehenge, Glastonbury, Hawkwind etc. Anyway, thanks again for the info. Sincerely, Mike Burro

mcstone Today I got on the web for the first time . Veday.wpb is a good page. but

From: "mcstone.ancientmod." To: Date: Tue, 13 Apr 1999 23:46:49 +0100 Ancient & Modern Mcstone.ancientmod@breathe 13/04/99 23:15 Dear Dice George, Today I got on the web for the first time . Veday.wpb is a good page. It records a gathering at Stonehenge that was peaceful , historic , and I learn commemorative. But surely it was not harmonious . I have to ask why did it happen at all ? I mean this was a political protest on sacred turf. It is or at least should be a sanctuary . Then there is the point that any such action is also exclusive , that is only those 'in the know' about the Ve day event could get to go in the stone circle. There is nothing egalitarian about this trespass which by it's nature excludes anyone who does not know the right people, didn't know in time or aren't together enough to go to the Stones on the appointed day. What was achieved on Ve Day ? I mean the whole country had the day off to commemorate the end of a war\defeat of fascism ...hooray! I went to Hyde Park that beautiful June day and got paid for it working as a gofer , but I digress. The few dozen hippies who went to Stonehenge deserve a folk song written to commemorate their daftness. I can't see that Stonehenge is a clever place to protest about war , at all. I figure that somehow I have written enough to justify asking you to e-mail me back. Please do as this is a test transmission !!! It is also a ( probably misguided ) exercise in free speech . Signing off for now, Best wishes. Hengist McStone

From: Subject: A. TO: [diggers350] firewood Date: Sat, 10 Apr 1999 11:02:55 +0100 GMT these are the press releases that caused the furore... PRESS RELEASES FROM THE DIGGERS AT ST GEORGE'S HILL, WEYBRIDGE DICTATED AT 13.55 ON 4 APRIL 1999 300 Diggers reposess St George's Hill On Saturday 3rd April 1999, 300 activists marched to St George's Hill, Weybridge, Surrey to erect a memorial stone to The Diggers, 350 years after the initial occupation of this once common land. Following the rally to the original Diggers site, the activists marched to a nearby part of the hill to establish a communal settlement in the spirit of the original Diggers. The activists have been negotiating with Saint George's Hill residents association, Saint George's Hill Golf Club and North Surrey Water (alleged land owners) in their aim to erect a memorial stone to commemorate the 350th anniversary of the historic Diggers encampment. The handcrafted memorial stone has been temporarily erected on the newly occupied site and activists have pledged to stay until a permanent and publically accessible home has been agreed and established. The activists have recently become aware that in 1952 land elsewhere on the hill was donated to Elmbridge Council with public right of way. However public access to this land has not been secured. Activists are also questioning the legalities of original enclosures of common land on Saint George's Hill and elsewhwere. Contact: Tony Gosling or Annie Merry 0961 460171. Background info: There is an acre of land for everyone in Britain. Millions of homeless, tenants and mortgagees still struggle while the priviliged 'own' more 'stolen' land than they could ever use. The Diggers are committed to changing this. "For action is the life of all, and if thou doest not act, thou doest nothing' -- Gerrard Winstaley, 1649. DICTATED AT 19.18 ON 4 APRIL 1999: A meeting was held this afternoon with Mr Newberry from the residents association and a representative of the landowners, North Surrey Water. As a result, North Surrey Water agreed to donate an appropriate site on the hill for the memorial stone, subject to access details being finalised with the residents association. North Surrey Water have accepted the historical importance of this occupation. ENDS DICTATED AT 20.55 ON 5 APRIL: CAMPAIGNER ATTACKED AT ST GEORGE'S HILL DIGGERS COMMUNITY Surrey Police are investigating an unprovoked assault that took place at the Diggers' encampment on the St George's Hill estate. The incident happened around 4pm on Monday April 5th at the entrance to the camp. A man known to be a local resident got out of a black four-wheel drive vehicle and attempted to remove some information boards at the gate. Mark Brown from the Diggers camp asked him to stop, and was punched in the face and knocked to the ground. The man then climbed back into the vehicle and reversed at high speed towards a group of people by the entrance to the site. No-one was injured by the vehicle. This incident is reminiscent of events 350 years earlier when the original Diggers were attacked by elements of the local population. Mr Brown said: "We are here in the spirit of the Diggers but I never expected history to be repeating itsel so literally." The camp welcomes visitors. Many local residents have visited and are supportive but this is the only incident of this type. Witnesses to the incident included former residents of the estate Dr Mario Capozzi and Heather Kershaw, now living in Weybridge [phone number 01932 859553]. Further details can be obtained from the camp. Camp contacts: Tony Gosling or Annie Merry 0961 460171. Background info: ENDS MESSAGE ENDS regards, Simon Bebbington

Admission a typically underpriced one pound! Until next time, thanks for being a member of the ring, Cheers, Andy --------------------------------------------------- Andy Burnham - Epsom, Surrey, UK o The Stone Circle Webring - A ring of independent megalithic web sites. March 25, 1999 A Web Surfer's Guide to Ancient British Past By MICHAEL POLLAK n the beginning, when the glaciers had retreated and the land was young, when warrior kings and their priests had learned how to use awe and fear, and even before they had learned to use an alphabet, there was Stonehenge. Stonehenge broods under a cloudy British sky, without the crowds that often dispel its aura of mystery. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---- Well, actually, before Stonehenge, there was Avebury, 20 miles to the north. Bigger and more elaborate than Stonehenge, Avebury, near Silbury Hill, is the largest prehistoric mound in Europe. In fact, southwestern England is studded with giant stone monuments and burial mounds, built by thousands of prehistoric men and women over thousands of years in the late Neolithic and early Bronze Ages. A village later grew up within Avebury's circle, and between the efforts of anti-pagan moralists and building-supply scavengers, Avebury's stones have been ravaged. It is Stonehenge, standing on the Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire, safer from builders and destroyers, that has caught the world's historical and mystical fancy. On a Web site named The Complete Stonehenge (, on a page titled Why I'm Obsessed, the site's creator, Emily Mace, wrote, "Something profound, something wonderful, something magnificent must have happened when I saw that monument." Her site is part of the Stone Circle Web Ring (, a group of more than 100 sites dealing with dolmens, menhirs, barrows, burial mounds and theories varying from the informed to the fanciful to the extraterrestrial: Dark Isle, Archaeoastronomy, Crystalinks, Megalithica, The Ley Hunter Journal, Stones of Wonder, How the Shaman Stole the Moon, and straight on till morning. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---- Stonehenge and its ceremonial kin still fire the imagination. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---- For those who want to start a tour, a wonderful guide is The Megalith Map, an index with the location of any known stone circle or row in the British Isles ( All of Britain and Ireland are gridded: click on a map grid and you get little symbols for each site. Try Stonehenge, and you get not only the visual and textual geography, but also a list of 16 other Web sites with more information. The Megalith Map is produced with the help of Aubrey Burl, the author of many books on prehistoric Britain, including "A Guide to the Stone Circles of Britain and Ireland" (Yale University Press, 1995). A less comprehensive but highly readable map guide, Ancient Britain, provides more information about fewer megalithic sites, along with many pictures ( The writer calls Avebury a far more rewarding place to visit than Stonehenge. "The atmosphere of the stones," the writer says of Stonehenge, "is long gone and with each visit I find it a little more depressing than the last." (English Heritage, the Government-sponsored preservation group, is planning a major relocation of the roads and tourist buildings to help improve the scenic beauty.) There are few signs of long-term settlement contemporaneous with Stonehenge and Avebury, and this absence has given rise to the notion that the builders were nomadic tribes. But the notion that nomads planned and executed a virtual city of religious and astronomical significance seems even more far-fetched: some of the monument's bluestones are believed to have been transported more than 100 miles, from hills in Wales, and required hundreds of laborers, who had to be housed and fed. And then there were the gold ornaments and bronze daggers buried in many of the graves, implying the existence of a nobility and an artisan class. One thing the historians are sure of is that the builders were not Druids; those animist forest-dwellers arrived long after Stonehenge was built. The Brittania Web site's Earth Mysteries pages by Chris Witcombe has a section on Druids ( The builders of Stonehenge left no alphabet but knew astronomy: the lintel stones and the "heel stone" to the east of the circles form a giant sundial in line with the summer solstice. English Heritage has done extensive radiocarbon dating of the site, dating antlers in the surrounding ditch to 3000 B.C., many of the main stones to between 2800 and 2200 B.C., and other parts to 1400 B.C. To some archeologists, the most amazing thing about Stonehenge is not the construction itself but the huge span of time, more than 1,500 years, in which it held an active place in prehistoric society. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---- Related Sites These sites are not part of The New York Times on the Web, and The Times has no control over their content or availability.

T/F 0171 713 1269 E-mail: Internet info - PRESS RELEASE 31st March 1999 McLIBEL APPEAL - MORE McAGONY FOR THE FAST FOOD GIANT - further defendants' victories on McDonald's nutrition and employment practices The verdict for the McLibel Appeal was handed down at 11am today, Wednesday 31st March, in Court 1 at the Royal Courts of Justice, The Strand. There was a lively celebration picket by supporters outside the Court. In their verdict today, Lord Justices Pill, May and Keane added to the damning findings of fact made by the original trial judge, Mr Justice Bell, against McDonald's core business practices. They ruled that: it was fair comment to say that McDonald's employees worldwide 'do badly in terms of pay and conditions' [Appeal Judgment p247], and true that 'if one eats enough McDonald's food, one's diet may well become high in fat etc., with the very real risk of heart disease.' The Lord Justices went on to state that this last finding 'must have a serious effect on their trading reputation since it goes to the very business in which they are engaged. In our judgment, it must have a greater impact on the respondents' [McDonald's] reputation than any other of the charges that the trial judge had found to be true'. [Judgment p264]

jumping the repercussions of jumping the barriers, touching the Henge etc.

From: "Sarah Chapman" Reply-To: To: Subject: Law enforcement Date: Tue, 23 Mar 1999 18:08:00 +0100 Hey there, I am interested in the repercussions of jumping the barriers, touching the Henge etc. There are two reasons for this. Firstly I am writing an article about the solstice and I would like to increase the numbers of people versus police, but also warn of the dangers and recriminations involved. Secondly because I desperately want to join in myself and wonder, as an Australian, could I be deported or restricted from other ancient sites, Heritage and the like in the British Isles? If anyone has any information, personal stories about such incidences and the like, I would be very interested to hear from you. Lastly - which road gets you the closest to Stonhenge while the roadblocks are in place? Good work and here's to more free worship in areas of choice. Sarah Chapman (

cockney We were responsible for bringing the rave element to the stones for the spring Equinox.

From: "Peter Newton" To: Subject: Mutant Dance Spring Equinox @ Stonehenge Date: Mon, 22 Mar 1999 15:55:10 -0000 Dear George We were responsible for bringing the rave element to the stones for the spring Equinox. We were trying to show a new generation the splendour of the place and remind another that we can still party at the stones and gain access in larger numbers without damage bieng caused to the stones or any trouble. We believe that to restrict access to "The chosen few" is an insult to others who share an equal right to walk among the stones as anyone. We would value your opinion on the party and our web site where our version of events and future plans will be posted shortly. We believe in a form of direct action using partys and fluro fun to make some form of statement We gave out a sheet at the stones outlining a brief history of the stonehenge struggle, this will be available on our site soon. I hope to hear your views. Cockney

eric obituary of a squatter: Eric Mattocks. a main man!

From: Alan Lodge CC: "Traveller's Information (E-mail)","Undercurrents (E-mail)","Veggies - Rainbow Centre (E-mail)" VEGGIES@INNOTTS.CO.UK Subject: obituary of a squatter: Eric Mattocks. a main man! Date: Tue, 2 Feb 1999 16:13:05 -0000 Tuesday afternoon Hello. Have just got in sat down, and read my guardian. In the obituary today, chap I lived with for a couple of months, years ago has died. Eric was an interesting fellow. Here is what they said about him. wicked! luv tash ===================================================== Eric Mattocks Occupational hazards Eric Mattocks, squatters' activist, born may 30 1928; died January 18, 1999 By Steve Platt Tuesday February 2, 1999 The Guardian Eric Mattocks, who has died suddenly in his sleep aged 70, was one of the liveliest and best-loved characters in the London squatting movement. A rough, roguish, huge-hearted man, he was a stalwart of the Islington-based Advisory Service for Squatters (ASS) for almost 25 years. There were few squatting campaigns in that period that did not bear the mark of his practical activism or echo with the sound of his unforgettable laugh. Brought up in working-class Hackney before and during the second world war, Eric never departed from his roots in London's East End. He had been a burglar before he was a squatter, and turned the skills he learned in that earlier profession to good use when his own experience of homelessness persuaded him that no one should remain homeless while houses stood empty. On the few occasions that he could be persuaded to speak about his housebreaking past, he was quick to insist that it was strictly confined to 'rich people's houses Kent, Surrey and Blackheath'. He despised 'nicking off the working class' and the rise of that sort of mean crime on the estates of Hackney and elsewhere. There was little that he would not do to help the many vulnerable people who turned to the squatting movement when all else had failed. For his 50th birthday Eric was presented by his squatter friends with the 'Order of the Golden Crowbar' (actually a gold spray-painted crowbar) in recognition of the number of squats he had opened up. The squatting movement of the 1970s and 1980s was at the heart of the political and cultural turbulence that produced, among much else, punks and punk rock. Although described as a 'proto-punk' for his anarchic politics and spikey ways by one of his younger fellow activists at ASS, Eric was never a fan of that particular music scene. At squatters' benefits he was often to be found taking the money on the door, where, equipped with industrial ear protectors, he would question the eager punters' sanity in 'paying good money for that bleedin' 'orrible racket'. He was also legendary in some music circles for once forcing Joe Strummer and his mates in the Clash, then on their way to stardom, to clean up the rubbish outside their squat. It was 'giving squatters a bad name. I don't care what bloody pop group they are.' Mattocks had first become involved in the organised squatting movement around the time of the eviction of the Elgin Avenue squatters in the summer of 1975, when barely a day passed without news of one squat or another hitting the headlines. He became treasurer of the London Squatters Union and was one of the founders of ASS, which he also served as treasurer until his death. When ASS hit one of its periodic financial crises, it was Eric who raised the money to keep it going; when the organisation was firebombed in 1981, it was Eric who got an emergency telephone line installed and had the centre back in action the next day. He did all this while working as a school gardener for the Inner London Education Authority, where he was an active trade unionist and shop steward. Perhaps Eric's greatest triumph was the Greater London Council's squatters' amnesty in 1977-78, when some 12,000 squatters in GLC properties were given authorised occupancies. Eric had found a kindred spirit at the GLC in John Snowcill, the senior official with responsibility for squatted properties. The two discovered they had attended the same primary school and formed a close friendship, which was to culminate in the plan for an amnesty. Eric played an essential role in its implementation chewed over with Snowcill at regular Friday sessions in a Waterloo pub. Among those who turned up to a London Squatters Union meeting in the late 1970s was Catherine, with whom Eric was to form a relationship that lasted for the rest of his life. Their two young children have lost their father, who loved them as dearly as he was loved by others, far too soon. ___________________________________________________ PHOTOGRAPHER - One Eye on the Road.

venue here's the text of wot i wrote Stonehenge - the Return?

From: Jamie Matthews To: "Dice George himself" Subject: re. Rollo's maybe-news etc. no.2 Date: Sun, 31 Jan 99 23:30:51 -0100 george thanks for getting back managed to miss your return message but i did plug the campaign site p'raps if i knew the time of the meeting thing etc. it could go in the relevant mag nearer the date i did quieten down on the thing a bit i 'spect it's worth writing in let 'em know we're still interested here's the text of wot i wrote dunno if they'll cut it it might be on the web too from next fri maybe i copied it to Paul at the Campaign Stonehenge - the Return? With the now-notorious events around the banning of the Stonehenge festival in 1985, many people, especially those in nearby Amesbury and other rural backwaters, thought they'd heard the last of Solstice celebrations on Salisbury Plain. They underestimated the tenacity of the ever-growing Pagan movement and those for whom this site, which few would dispute was laid-out for seasonal observance, is more than just a tourist attraction. It is not generally known that for several years now Druids and other constituted Pagan groups have been permitted to use the monument for religious workings outside regular opening hours, with the full co-operation of the site's controlling agency, English Heritage. The religious tolerance argument, one of those always invoked around Stonehenge, has been taken seriously by EH, and has even led to discussions between practising Pagans, EH and the National Trust, about other megalithic monuments around the country. On several occasions too, particularly at the Winter Solstice this year and several past, groups of those interested in the stones have somehow happened to be present in sufficient numbers at the site to have the confidence to enter; they have not been resisted by the couple of security staff on duty, have disported themselves peaceably to the satisfaction of staff and the local Police, and left again in the morning. Since 1985 too, avowedly Pagan and other organisations have made representations and held meetings with English Heritage looking for a solution for the long term. One such is now claiming a significant advance. Rollo Maughfling, a character well-known around the festival culture but also the 'Stonehenge Officer' of the Council of British Druid Orders - the profusion of Pagan organisations is as much of a confusion to the ininitiated onlooker as it presumably is to EH themselves - has announced that, as a prelude to far greater (but still technically limited) access, all those interested in access to Stonehenge at the Solstices from Summer '99 on have been invited to write to English Heritage in Amesbury, stating their interest and (for what it's worth) the number of years they have been going to Stonehenge. Figures from 100 to 1000 have been suggested as the possible size of group to be admitted, though others have suggested that the likely response is far in excess of this - there is, presumably, only one way to find out. Fourteen years on, nobody, let alone the Police, is interested in the permanent perpetuation of the expensive annual 'Exclusion Zone' around Stonehenge. Discussions to this end are still in progress, and as of yet there is no indication that they will be relaxed this year, though both English Heritage and Wiltshire Constabulary have made it clear that they are willing to pursue its eventual dismantling "one step at a time". There are divergent schools of thought also among Pagans and the erstwhile festival folk. Many dislike the weight this one issue has been given but will perhaps return the moment a definite move is made; others, like the London-based Stonehenge Campaign and the persistent annual procession of walkers, have not been party to these particular meetings and do not advocate anything less than full open access (for which negociations continue); a vocal but probably minority faction look for the immediate re-establishment of the free festival; many of the bigger pagan groups and Druid Orders have been quietly continuing Solstice celebration at other sites all round Britain. But there is nobody who isn't glad to see a move away from stalemate. Names & addresses etc. to: Mrs. Clews Everard, E.H. Stonehenge Director, Abbey Square, Amesbury, Wiltshire.

secrets The Bureau of Public Secrets website

From: "Bureau of Public Secrets" To: "Radicals & Visionaries" Subject: The Most Brilliant Subversive Coup of Modern Times Date: Wed, 20 Jan 1999 16:23:39 -0800 "The accused have never denied the charge of misappropriating the funds of the Strasbourg Student Union. Indeed, they openly admit to having made the union pay nearly 5000 francs for the printing of 10,000 pamphlets, not to mention the cost of other literature inspired by the 'Situationist International.' These publications express aims and ideas which, to put it mildly, have nothing to do with the purpose of a student union. . . . Rejecting all morality and legal restraint, making sweeping denunciations of their fellow students, their professors, God, religion, the clergy, and the governments and political and social systems of the entire world, these cynics do not hesitate to advocate theft, the destruction of scholarship, the abolition of work, total subversion, and a permanent worldwide proletarian revolution with 'unrestrained pleasure' as its only goal." --Judge Llabador, Strasbourg District Court (1966) The situationists' notorious Strasbourg pamphlet "ON THE POVERTY OF STUDENT LIFE" -- the prelude to the May 1968 revolt in France -- has been translated into more than a dozen languages and reprinted in over half a million copies. A new English translation, more accurate than any of the previous versions, is now online at The site also includes new translations of the situationist articles "Our Goals and Methods in the Strasbourg Scandal" and "Beginning of an Era" (on the May '68 revolt). There is also a brief discussion of the scandal in chapter 2 of "The Joy of Revolution." * * * The Bureau of Public Secrets website, which has received over 30,000 page hits from some 6000 visitors during its first five months, features Ken Knabb's translations of French situationist texts as well as many of Knabb's own writings, including "The Joy of Revolution," "Confessions of a Mild-Mannered Enemy of the State," and an assortment of comics, leaflets and articles on Wilhelm Reich, Kenneth Rexroth, Gary Snyder, the sixties counterculture, radical women, Chinese anarchists, socially engaged Buddhists, urban "psychogeography," the Watts riot, the Iranian uprising, the Gulf war, and the recent jobless revolt in France.
