    Yeah man ofcourse! There's a possie of us going down from Norwich early on the 1st which I think is a Wednesday so if you get here the day before or something, that might be a good idea.

    As of yet no one knows what the police situation will be, no doubt there'll be grief in the weeks leading up to the anniversary.:rolleyes:

    Just got this one off Indy aswell, looks like some good stuff.

    By the way, there are those involved in the Solstice at Stonehenge 'reconcilliation' process who don't feel that the anniversary should be remembered by people heading down to the area for the 1st as it will somehow jeapordise the current solstice celebrations there.

    I for one say 'SUCK EGGS'!

    I was 14 at the time and can safely say it was the most politicizing event of my life and I have the scars on my head to prove it. I've been waiting years to mark this nasty sordid event and make sure the public remember what actually happened!!

    There's a traveller sitting beneath an oak tree on a piece of land.

    The owner comes up to him, in a threatening manner and says:

    Get off my land!

    What makes it your land?

    My father gave it to me

    And what made it his land?

    His father gave it to him

    And what made it his land?

    His father fought for it

    Right says the traveller, rolling up his sleeves,

    I'll fight you for it then..!!


    Maon, I dont like my pictures on here as I'm a very naughty boy and don't wan't certain organisations knowing what I look like! If you know what I mean;) .

    Interestingly enough they didnt manage to destroy us that year. 3 years later in 1988 they had another good go, resulting in about 60 arrest and a lot of hospitalisation on both sides.

    At the end of the day I think we ended up destroying ourselves sadly.

    I have so many mixed feelings on this one that I can't even string a coherent opinion together.

    Well the traveller community, as it once existed, is dead and buried. I think the CJA is only partly accountable for that though. All it really did was accelerate the process. Strangely, I think the biggest single contributor to the death of the travelling community is the continued increase in relative prosperity over the last couple of decades. Coutercultures need an underclass in order to survive, and their simply aren't enough downtrodden masses anymore.

    You say that ... but the more I look around, the more I'm starting to think that people are more downtrodden and oppressed than ever.

    I just think it's hidden away more ... where people used to struggle with nothing, they now have easier access to credit and struggle more with debts and other pressures, while still seeming to have a decent lifestyle. Healthcare is no better, waiting lists are shit; in some places round here you can't even register with a doctor or get your kids into a school ... If you want a council flat now the system has changed so you have to bid for it rather than wait your turn.

    I think the national statistics website says that the division of wealth in the UK is actually slightly worse (

    People were downtrodden in the eighties and they made a stand ... Nowadays, with changes in union laws and the CJA, it seems that people are not only downtrodden, they are also demoralised and can't even see the point of making a stand.
