Paynes Lane Rally


Plans for the Paynes Lane rally
on Sunday, 22 August (starts 11 am)
are now fairly far advanced.

Paynes Lane is at Lower Nazeing,
in Epping area, near M25. Nearest station Broxbourne
-which is easy walking distance.

Part of it will be burning of a bender-tent
and >Dedication of Memorial Field<
to the Romani victims of the Holocaust
and present-day neo-facist groups (BNP now
has three members on Epsom council, with
manifesto to evict Gypsies)

The Commemoration is worldwide,
marking the 60th anniversary of the
liquidation -after a desperate fight - of
the Gypsy Camp at Auschwitz on
the night of 2 and 3 August l944.

A field of several hundred black binbags,
each with the name of a victim on it, will
be laid out like a cemetery - and
a service conducted by Baptist Minister
dedicating the ground to the memory of
the 600,000 Roma dead.

Double purpose: to commemorate the
victims and to create a moral minefield
for the local council - which has through
the courts ordered the owners of the land,
Harry and Linda Smith, to leave on Monday,
23 August (some people are staying over
in tents for Monday).

There will also be an Expo about the
Holocaust and current neo-Nazi murders - 300
documented such killings since l989.
