Jack in the Green

This year’s Jack in the Green festival once again featured an eclectic collection of groups and individuals gathering to celebrate the pursuit and eventual slaying of Jack, marking the start of summer – and indeed the sun shone for at least some of this wonderful day. Hastings Online Times’ volunteer amateur photo-journalists give you a flavour of the festival, and issue a call to all those real photographers out there in Hastings and St Leonards – contribute to HOT and send us your photo-stories.

Last July the ‘anti-terrorist focus desk’ of the City of Westminster police issued a call for members of the public to report any sightings of anarchists immediately. “Anarchism is a political philosophy which considers the state undesirable, unnecessary, and harmful, and instead promotes a stateless society, or anarchy,” they explained, though how that stance made them terrorists or enemies of society was not explained.
