A Christian group organised a petition to stop Witchfest Scotland. We had no choice but to organise a counter petition, and mobilise support against a serious threat to our community. We are please to announce that less than 36 hours after organising this campaign, Glasgow council have agreed the witchfest Scotland venue booking.

We would like to thank all the individuals who supported our cause, our valiant Witchfest Scotland organisers, everyone who voted in the petition, or/and emailed the council. , Councillor Malcolm Cunning (who supported religious freedom for all, maybe remember this at election time), the Nil by Mouth anti religious bigotry charity, Scotwitch, Avalonia, WWL, UKPagan, WyrdShop and too many more organisations to mention.

You can still indicate your support of Witchfest events and your opposition to anti Witch & Wiccan sentiment by signing our petition here. You never know when we will need such a document again!

New UK regulations
may give Wiccans employment rights

The Employment Equality (Religion or Belief) Regulations 2003 came into force on the 2nd December 2003. This could be the most significant legislation affecting Wiccans and Witches since the repeal of the Witchcraft Act. The legislation has a very broad definition of what consitutes a "religion". The guidelines for employees and employers published by ACAS (the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service) explicitly include the word Wicca as one of the religions that are potentially covered by this new law.

Merlyn talked directly to the author of the ACAS document to determine whether our beliefs are covered by this new act. Her view is that Wicca is probably included, a view she claimed the lawyers who drafted the act shared. She made it very clear that Wicca's inclusion will only be certain once a test case has been held. If such a case successfully claimed discrimanation on the grounds of the employee being a Wiccan then it will go into case law and our position will be clear. Therefore we are interested in hearing from anyone who loses their job directly as a result of being Wiccan.
