I"M CALLING A S'A'I'O'N (Meeting)
« on: August 16, 2016, 10:39:07 PM »
Hello Everybody,silverweed3 You all know me as dplutonium13 or Vesper. I am quite surprised to not share this with you all much sooner, but it is best sooner than late. I Hope you all read this for this is of great importance. First is definitely old news, but it seems to still be an ongoing issue and I hope we do not ignore it before it is too late. I have just relearned from here: http://watershipdownclub.deviantart.com/journal/The-real-Watership-Down-is-under-serious-threat-287695495#comments about the preplanned creation of 2000 homes in Britan. To the unaware reader, this is great news, but the one of the chosen location of the Planned is homed to our beloved Watership Down. :bigwig2  :pipkin-oh  :woundwort  I have looked around to see if any progress was made, but so far found nothing besides petitions. This is personally Ironic on how in a way, Richard Adams did predict the destruction of Sandleford Warren, but not Watership Down. I hope it never goes through, but I am still understandably afraid. I hope they won't do it and that I am just overreacting to old news, but still.....
Here are some websites, videos, and Petitions that would give you more information.

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-berkshire-17028538

I've noticed taht some of the Petitions are closed, I am hoping that means that they did not go through with the housing plan.

We already have a thread about this:

http://fhc.soopergrape.com/index.php?topic=223.0

According to this other thread, it's not the Down itself that is under threat, but the area in Sandleford, just like in all adaptations of WD.

Unfortunately there have been no news about this for a long time, so I don't know what happened about this...

Oh, I had a feeling that Fiver HoneyComb already had a thread about this. Sorry about that, I did not know. Let's just hope Watership Down in the Future still, stands.
