King Arthur Pendragon is the leader of what has become known as the Warrior Arm of the modern Druid movement, The Loyal Arthurian Warband. He is a veteran of the anti-roads movement of the 1990s and has been arrested – mostly for trespass – more than 30 times.

He is famous for his legal battles with English Heritage over Stonehenge in Wiltshire. He campaigned for the removal of the four-mile exclusion zone which was established each year during the summer solstice. On 19 October 1998, with assistance from Liberty, he had his case heard by the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg. The court decided in favour of the UK government but the exclusion zone was lifted the following year.

In June 2008, he set up a protest camp, demanding free access to Stonehenge for everyone. He demanded that the fences should be removed, and that the A344 and A303 should be closed or redirected. He occupied the byway for ten months, and obtained 8,000 signatures in support of his petition. He defied a court order from Wiltshire Council to close the camp and only ended his protest on after English Heritage announced plans to move a section of the A303 underground, and to create a new visitor centre about a mile and a half away from the stones.

In August 2011, he unsuccessfully filed a High Court appeal calling for the cremated remains of more than forty bodies, which had been exhumed, to be immediately reburied. He has also voiced his opposition to English Heritage’s plan to display three more sets of human remains at the new visitor centre, claiming that out of respect to the ancient British ancestors, replica bones should be on view instead.

He still conducts ceremony four times a year, from small gatherings of hundreds at the equinoxes to tens of thousands at Midsummer. His biography ‘The Trials of Arthur’ has been published by journalist C.J. Stone

Tonight, he talks about the ‘Magic’ in his life and the upcoming Summer Solstice. http://www.meetup.com/South-London-Wicca-Meetup/events/228411041

Global March for Lions (London) on 15th March

Ban canned Hunting of Lions - March in London 15th March 2014
Ban canned Hunting of Lions – March in London 15th March 2014

South African wildlife activists have initiated a Global March for Lions that will be held in various cities throughout the world to highlight the plight of lions caught up in the canned hunting industry.

The march is to be held on Saturday 15th March 2014.

What is Canned Hunting?

Canned hunting is where the target animal is unfairly prevented from escaping the hunter, either by physical constraints (fencing) or by mental constraints (tame, habituated to humans.)

There are fewer than 4000 lions left in the ’wild’ in South Africa, but more than 8,000 in captivity, being bred for the bullet or the arrow. Lion farming is a real threat to wild lion prides, for many reasons.

The on-going capture of wild lions to introduce fresh blood into captive breeding, and the growth of the lion bone trade to Asia will impact severely on wild lions from poaching.

This toxic and cruel industry needs to be closed down.

March in London

The March on 15th Match is a global event..taking place on many cities of the world.  But in London, it is being organised slightly different. There will be 8 mini-marches, starting at different locations around Central London, and all culminating at Trafalgar Square, London..

Base – Trafalgar Square
Route 1 – Westminster Bridge
Route 2 – Parliament Square
Route 3 – St James Square
Route 4 – Buckingham Palace
Route 5 – Palladium Theatre
Route 6 – Leicester Square
Route 7 – London University
Route 8 – Waterloo Bridge

**For anyone unable to March, or you simply wish to stay in Trafalgar… you can. Gather at the same time (2pm), leaflet and await the excitement**

All routes finish outside South Africa House, Trafalgar Square (North Terrace).

This is a peaceful event, education of both children & adults is vitally important, therefore children are welcomed.
