The fascist Freemasons and weasel (no offence against weasels intended) plotters who dominate the legal services departments at Avon and Somerset police and Mendip District Council have applied to the High Court for an injunction to halt the Big Green Gathering saying it will be 'unsafe'.
Their legal mercenaries will appear at the High Court in the Strand at midday on Monday 27th July. 

Read a much calmer appraisal of the situation here

They choose initiate this action just before this weekend to make it as difficult as possible for Big Green to organise the legal team to fight the injunction. 
Words cannot describe the fascistic evil people behind this fraudulent and malfaecant misuse of public money. 
The last Big Green was bancrupted by these self same poisonous occupiers of our once respected public offices. 
The real reason for this hateful abuse of public trust is that this is one of the only truly independednt festivals in the country and nothing like the commercially motivated events such as Glastonbury. 
Neither does it produce as much revenue for the rapacious licencing authorities as these much more commercial events.
And all this in the guise of public safety.
In reality this is an attemt to deny British society the ability to heal itself since the BGG ethos is one of sustainability not greed and pollution... and freedom, not creeping police state style control. Most revealing that it is the Avon and Somerset police, now in bed with Nazi Holocaust firm IBM (See Edwin Black's book 'IBM and the Holocaust') in the form of Business West IBM company SouthWest One, that are behind this fascistic move. 

A vicious rumour is circulating ... that whatever happens in the High Court on Monday this festival will be going ahead. ;-)

Airplanes now departing from deep in the woods

Going against the CGI effects of today, a group of artists and architects are in a remote Russian forest in the Kaluga region, some 200 kilometers south-west of Moscow, to literally take the 21st century back to nature.

The Land Art festival held in the remote Russian village of Nikola-Lenivets is all about objects made of wood and other natural materials, but this time artists decided to add a touch of techno to the exposition, pitting nature against technology. For instance, they have made an installation of an airport departures and arrivals board that even announces flights, though you cannot really board them in the middle of the woods!

“This is an artistic project of the highest quality,” said Tatyana Bokova, project coordinator from the European Commission.

“It offers an exchange of views, best practices and ideas between young Russian architects and European landscape designers.”

Aleksey Shulgin, media artist and one of the creators of the board-in-the-woods artwork explains that “Technologies surround us, while the forest is a place where people come to escape technology. In this piece we just wanted to bring together personal experience of a modern human: the experience of being at the airport, in the very alienated and commercialized place of transition from which everyone wants to escape as soon as possible and forest where people come to relax and enjoy the nature.”

The show about nature has been in existence for about ten years and Nikola-Lenivets is the birthplace of Russian land art, while in the west such expositions have been running for 50 years already.

Due to the abundance of space and materials in Russia this festival has become popular with foreign landscape artists arriving to Nikola-Lenivets to set up landscapes. Even cows in the village make up parts of landscape design.

You do not need to be a fine art expert to understand the installations because, as one artist put it, “you don’t have to explain art, you only need to enjoy it.”

Mattieu Gontier, landscape artist from “Atelier 710” says that Russia attracts people of his profession because it’s big, rich and beautiful:

“I think it’s a dream of a landscape architect to work in Russia because you have space â€" and it’s just marvelous!”

Bert Busschaert, landscape artist from Belgium agrees with Gontier, who invited him to the event:

“The big scale of the landscape is very interesting. In Belgium where I live it’s very small, and here it’s completely different and that’s very nice”.

"Here you have open air, you can breathe, there are bushes, forests â€" lots of space”.
