As I understand it, there's been a lot of conversation and evangelization about Lewes by people in our group who came to the town for an enjoyable pro-democracy static rally in November, though they were badly roughed up by illegal fascists who tried to hold an opposing event after hearing we had previously arranged our rally. As for next Tuesday, me and my friends' meeting in the town centre is for peace and sustainable living. There will be no march. A very large attendance is expected and there will be a carnival-like atmosphere with songs and costumes. We're encouraging everyone to wear animal masks. We will be in charge and keeping order ourselves. It will be a very pretty sight for families to enjoy.

Isn't Lewes in the countryside ? Pretty rural to me, lots of fields, no electric lights at night, farms close by, tractors on the roads. I think that's sort of a sign.

@Sad and bitter - I don't. Why would I go watch someone trying to glorify brutal, unnecessary killings.
@Bert It might be near the countryside but it's not. If it was that close the hunt could turn up on horseback. Instead, go and have a look down by Tescos at all their trucks that they bring the horses in with.

I heard a women in a pub near here gloating at how her husband loved shooting squirrels for fun. She wasn't a typical country type, just a normal sort of person. She didn't seem at all concerned that she was living with a murderous psychopathic armed lunatic.

@Sydney. Grey Squirrels are vermin, like rats, and should be eradicated whether for fun or as part of a pest control process. They are a nuisance to forestry and gardeners and are responsible for the serious demise of our native Red Squirrel.

Why can't we live and let live? The foxes are in no danger on Boxing Day. Some of the riders are magistrates and don't want to be involved in anything illegal whatever they think of the law. The Hunt usually just go for a good gallop on the Downs to work off their Xmas pud. They are a traditional spectacle, like morris dancers and bonfire. If any of them offend you because of their origins (cruelty, paganism or anti-Catholic prejudice), just stay away. There are plenty of other things to do in Lewes.

Sashimi's response is exactly why I personally take part in large peace and animal rights rallies such as Tuesday's in Lewes. Preaching so-called "live and let live" to uneducated people is a fascist tactic, and leads directly to the rise of fully institutionalised fascism. The organisers never comment on their plans but I know personally we will permit into our area no-one on horseback. The number of people and their singing and instruments might cause distress to horses and, because we police ourselves, I expect we will take every possible measure to exclude animals from the town centre. This is pretty well-known now, I think.

Tom, the organisers do not discuss admission to the peace and animal rights rally but I know they control it very tightly for security. There is no possibility of admission without a personal introduction.

It's staggering really that Dean can't see the irony in their own behaviour while referencing the tactics of unsavoury groups. That kind of evangelical lack of self-awareness is typical of those groups too. I'm anti-hunt but wouldn't want to be part of something that can't hold a mirror up to itself.

The response above, from "Astonishing", makes absolutely no sense whatsoever! Is it even English?? This is the kind of deception we're up against! Oppression by the lying establishment and the voices of anti-democratic inheritance are on their way out.

@Eric - I think you're the one who's stuck on the past. These days the riders aren't all upper class, they're just a mixed group of people who live and sometimes work in the countryside. I'm not a Tory and I don't like hunting for pleasure, but if a group of country folk want to meet up and gallop across the countryside, what's the big deal? There's too much chippiness on the part of some people.

Dean, if you're going to criticise other people's use of English you should try to avoid the hyped-up pseudo-rhetoric that you seem to imagine is persuasive. You sound like a particularly pretentious sixth former.
