British Landowners and Walkers Face Off Regarding the Freedom to Roam
"The issue has become a vexed one. Ramblers in the tens of thousands insist on their right of access to open land once considered 'common.' Landowners frequently object, sometimes robustly. The result has been a tragicomic struggle steeped in 19th-century notions of class, land, and freedom. It sounds like a footnote to Marx, only this time it's Walkers of the World Unite."
