OBOD members and The Warrior’s Call joined the Upton Anti-Fracking camp to celebrate the Winter Solstice last Sunday. The camp was set up in April 2014 to try to prevent IGas Energy from drilling there. The camp is now under threat as the energy company have obtained an eviction order, however, the residents are determined to continue resisting with their peaceful protest.
OBOD member Liz Cruse, who was present at the ritual, said that there were several OBOD members present but also many non-druids for whom it was their first experience of Pagan ceremony.
I include here a link to the Chester Chronicle’s article about the event and a short film of the celebrations.
