THE LAND IS OURS
Autumn Gathering 99
Friday 3rd - Monday 6th September
Shall they, as have brought hedges about common pastures, enclose with
their intolerable lusts also all the commodities and pleasures of this
life, which Nature, the parent of us all would have common?.....now that it
comes to extremity, we will also prove extremity; rend down hedges, fill up
ditches, make way for everyman into the common pasture.--Anon, 1609
Following SUCCESSFUL LAND OCCUPATIONS: Diggers 350 on St Georges Hill and
Ketts Rebellion in Norwich; a further land squat is underway in Norfolk.
We will be sharing experiences, celebrating and looking to the future at
this years autumn gathering. So bring along visions, memories, stories and
eldritch wild imaginings.

"...not only this Common, or Heath should be taken in and Manured by the
People, but all the Commons and waste Ground in England, and in the whole
shall be taken in by the People in righteousness, not owning any Property;
taking the Earth to be a Common Treasury, as it was first made for all." -
The Diggers' Manifesto - The True Levellers Standard Advanced, 1649
Paranoid or complacent?
