Silbury Hill

Artificial Mound


Save Silbury Peaceful Protest

September 8th, 2001:

Venue Avebury main car-park with walk to Silbury Hill.

A mass walk to bring attention to the sorry state of the hill and to demand that govt money is provided to repair the damage. By this date the current surveys should be completed and an idea of just how much work and money is needed should be ready.

Help to keep the pressure up and to get media attention by joining the walk, meet up in the main car- park around 1-1.30pm ready to set off to Silbury Hill car park at 2pm.

Bring a picnic, bring children, bring your friends, bring banners. This is to be a peaceful demonstration so the more peaceful types the better!

The last march went off very well with a friendly police presence and some of the kids getting lifts in the back of the lead police car. If by any chance an announcement is made that the funds will be made available then the day will transform into a celebration instead.

If any of you who live in cities and don't have cars would like to offer to arrange coaches get in touch. Likewise anyone with car space.

Birmingham/Midlands pagans are already trying to arrange coach hire and places. Make a day out of it, book a coach for your moot, enjoy a day out in Ancient Avebury and do something to show support for Silbury Hill.

Anyone wanting to offer to be a steward for the day please get in touch by mailing, stewards are needed to try to talk people out of climbing the hill and to ensure safety on the walk (fluorescent jackets provided).
