Legal Case Timeline

This is a timeline of our journey through the courts since our arrest in 2010. Our progress has been slow but steady since we were granted a Stay in Prosecution and the end is in sight despite us being in limbo with The Trial of the Plant . We have spent the major part of our campaign creating awareness, garnering support and raising funds.

All legal documents contained in this timeline and pertaining to our case are linked to Fields of Green for ALL Resources / Downloads page under LEGAL. All of these documents are in the public domain and we ask that you sign up for our newsletter in order to download or view them.
