New eco-village this summer

Interested in land rights? Then you might be interested in this. The new eco-villagers will be walking to Windsor from tomorrow (Saturday 9th June 2012), camping overnight en route. They will hopefully be arriving at the new eco-village site at some point on Sunday 10th June. If you’d like to join them, they’ll be leaving from Syon Lane Community Allotment at 1pm on Saturday, or you can meet up with them at the site or even at any point along their route – just get in touch and they’ll let you know where they are!

For more information, see their website and Facebook event page, email, follow @freetheland on Twitter or call/text 07963 475 195 /07905 283 114.

If you can’t join them this weekend, maybe you could take a look at the eco-villagers’ Wishlist – which can be found here. You would be of great assistance if you could possibly help out with any of these items!

Wishing them all good luck (and good weather on the way)…

More from the Land and Freedom Camp

A couple of days ago, I blogged about the week-long Land and Freedom Camp on Clapham Common in London. I visited them again on Monday,  and promised I would post some pics of what they’re getting up to! So far, the local response has been very positive and friendly – several local people came by when I was there and took part in an interesting and thought-provoking discussion on land rights and housing with the camp. Visitors are welcome, and the camp has a lot of events and activities planned for the rest of the week (see here for further details and a map of the camp’s location) – if you’re in the area, pop by for a cup of tea!


Land and Freedom Camp, Clapham Common

The Land and Freedom Camp arrived on Clapham Common in London this weekend – despite the best efforts of the rain, a cheerful and friendly group of activists have set up on a small patch of the common next to Holy Trinity Church. I went to visit them yesterday to see what was happening, and was greeted with hot tea and much interesting conversation about the reasoning behind and the necessity of this “open exhibition and demonstration”.
