Magna Carta monument, Runnymede

Greetings from the Diggers who are currently camped on Cooper’s Hill, Egham, Surrey overlooking Runnymede.

We invite you to join us this Saturday, 16th June at 1 p.m at the Magna Carta monument at Runnymede. 

The nearest train station is Egham.

We plan to have a meeting to discuss freedom under the law and using the disused land to grow eco-villages.  We also will be having a picnic and possibly singing a few songs.  You may decide you wish to come and join us living low impact and sustainably in the beautiful Surrey countryside.  If this is the case, bring a tent, sleeping bag, mug, bowl and spoon.

If you want to contact us, please phone: 07963 475 195 or email: Diggers2012@yahoo.co.uk

Please note that at this time that our movements are being followed quite alot by police officers and we wouldn’t want you to be alarmed or surprised if there is a police presence on Saturday 8)

Our intention is summarised by our Declaration from the Dispossessed:

A declaration from the dispossessed

We: peaceful people, declare our intention to go and cultivate the disused land of this island; to build dwellings and live together in common by the sweat of our brows.

We have one call:  every person in this country and the world should have the right to live on the disused land, to grow food and to build a shelter. This right should apply whether you have money or not. We say that no country can be considered free, until this right is available to all.

With our current system in crisis we need a radically different way of growing our communities. We call on the government and all landowners to let those who are willing, make good use of the disused land. Land that is currently held from us by force.  By our actions, we seek to show how we can live without destroying the planet or ourselves. Free from the yoke of debt and rent, our labors can be directed to the benefit of all.

Though we may be oppressed for our actions, we will strive to remain peaceful. But we are committed to our cause and will not cease from our efforts until we have achieved our goal.

20th May 2012.
