Feature Articles
For those with an attention span of more than three minutes, here is a new collection of articles too long, analytical or high-brow to normally publish in the weekly newsheet.

We are open to submissions of longer articles - 1000-3000 words - which can explore topics ranging from geopolitical situations to biotechnology, renewable energy, economics, laws and legislation, and more to provide further background to the issues we cover on a weekly basis. Articles can be credited to an author, if s/he requests it. And we may request changes or suggest an edited version before publishing. Photos to accompany articles are welcome. Unless specified, all articles will be given 'copyleft' status.

While the initial set of articles in this column have previously appeared in SchNEWS, mostly this section will be web-only (though some may also appear in issues from time to time).

If you would like to submit an article, email SchNEWS at mail@schnews.org.uk

Since 1997 the site has held the annual Dragon Festival - now arguably one of the most significant free festivals in Europe - but this is also under attack. Here is a brief history written by a resident of Cigarrones:
