Magna Carta Memorial, Runnymede, Surrey, Sat 16 Jun 2012
A police officer talks with those who have come to the meeting at the Magna Carta Memorial
Singing the Digger's Song at the Magna Carta Memorial
The police officer says goodbye to the group
Who decide to form a circle on the grass rather than meet around the actual memorial
both because the pillars make it harder to see each other and also to allow access to other visitors to the memorial
There was a long discussion about the issues, both historical and current
and a number of interesting proposals
in particular about how there might be a people's celebration of the 800th anniversary in 2015 as well as the official one
Around 4pm people decided to go and have a look at the diggers came site at the top of the hill
