So come join us..but come early..as the place is bound to be full 🙂 See you there. Bright Blessings.-Mani Navasothy
here’s the details ..and link to `South London Wicca’s event page for this.
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
