A Write Royal Rant
Let me begin by thanking all my supporters 'over he years' who have given up their time and energy to the cause, and a special thank you to those who have helped fund the causes we have and continue to 'fight' for.
Stonehenge, is an ongoing saga and from time to time it comes to a head, between me and the 'Authorities' usually ending with one, other or both talking the other to court.
This week is just such a time with a meeting scheduled for Thursday, where we shall find out whether or not the 'Authorities' plan to listen to common sense, and leave the droves (By-ways Open to All Traffic) within the World Heritage site of Stonehenge open over the Winter Solstice period, enabling 'us' to access them;
Or, as they have previously stated, their intention to close them, Forcing us to use and Pay for the English Heritage car park, with it's limited spaces for Pilgrims and Celebrants turning up to celebrate the Winter Solstice Dawn.
The 'Authorities' in question are English Heritage, who apply for any such closure on the advise of Wiltshire Police, who enforce it, and Wiltshire Council who grant it. Who for the past two years plus have refused to turn up for such meetings. Allowing each of the Authorities the ability to blame the other when quizzed about their reasoning.
After the ensuing mess this practice caused at the Winter Solstice 2019, I set out 'our' legal reasons why I believe these Temporary Traffic Restrictions are illegal, and disproportionate to the Pagan and Druid community. Which prevents the exercising of our Article 9,10,11, and 14 rights under UK Law, European, and Treaty Obligations.
Nearly two years later, I still await a reply from any of them.
So, I fully intend to ask yet again for a response, and for the said orders not to be placed upon ALL By-ways Open to All Traffic within the World Heritage site of Stonehenge over the coming Winter Solstice Period.
I shall however not hold my breath, and may once again need your support in 'crowd funding' for yet more legal action, as I can not fund any further legal challenges without financial Support.
