A PUBLIC MEMORIAL IN HONOUR OF LOKI WILL BE HELD @ MIDNIGHT JUNE 20 SUMMER SOLSTICE STONEHENGE @ THE HELE STONE – R.I.P LOKI – NEVER FORGOTTEN, DEEPLY MISSED.
Stonehenge was given by Cecil Chubb as a Deed of gift to the people of Britain. Cecil Chubb particularly insisted that there should be guaranteed access at all times to the Druids and the people of Albion, for their traditional observances…. Legally this must be recognised and the financial exploitation of Stonehenge by English Heritage on behalf of the Secretary of State, who owns the Freehold, brought to an end. English Heritage have gone too far in the exploitation of a living Burial Ground, whereby descendants of those scattered over the last several hundred years, wish and deserve, free access to the Sanctified Site at any time of the day or night. Especially as still today, many families of Albion have their loved ones ashes scattered around the Temple. The Obstruction by English Heritages’ Security measures, are a Breach of our Right to honour our Dead. English Heritage have one aim, ensuring Financial Profit for the Secretary of State at the expense of Dignity and Respect. This is a serious matter, this breech of our Human Rights to Worship. As are the current restrictions placed upon us with regards to the carrying out of Practices pertaining to the Respecting of our Dead. If you agree and wish to help change the status of this Sacred site from exploited tourist attraction, and return Stonehenge to a freely opened Temple Landscape, please sign and share the petition ♥ http://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/david-cameron-return-stonehenge-to-a-fully-open-and-freely-accessible-monument

Thanks for inviting me George – as discussed I will try up-loading the documents as Im not convinced they wont disappear off Facebook one day! Especially if we end up fighting another Stonehenge related planning application, which was the reason for my setting up the Library – was considering adding them to SGWI website but we running out of space :)!

The Stonehenge Proposal for Midsummer’s Day Access
We propose that over the period of the Summer Solstice the public be allowed free and equitable access into Stonehenge and it’s surrounding landscape. This would enable people to freely attend as are their needs and customs: the Sunrise, Midday, the Sunset and the Solstice. Current overcrowding and driver safety problems are caused by the increasing popularity of the present open access and the decision to end access early on Solstice morning. We believe these problems can be resolved in the best interests of everyone by extending the access period to cover the whole of Midsummers Day. We invite English Heritage and other interested parties to support this Proposal in principle and look forward to working with them to further its aims.
Presented on 21 December 2008, Winter Solstice at Stonehenge on behalf of the petitioners and the People.
