METSATÖLL’s concert series „PROTECT THE SACRED GROVES
28-09-2006

On October 14, Metsatöll begins their concert series in Jõhvi, dedicated to the protection of sacred groves and other natural shrines, titled „PROTECT THE SACRED GROVES”.

At the concerts, which will take place in Jõhvi, Kuressaare, Haapsalu and Tallinn, Metsatöll is accompanied by groups from Estonia, Finland and Latvia, to together step up for the protection of our sacred groves.

Our people’s most important holy places – the sacred groves – are in jeopardy. Estonian businessmen and government have turned against the groves and are continuing what the Crusaders started, when they chopped off the faces of our earth-gods at the Ebavere grove hill.

The state authorities have allowed the construction of wind power stations at the ancient Kunda grove hill, wide sports tracks at the Ebavere grove hill, a fitness and leisure centre at the Paluküla grove hill, a parking lot into the Panga grove, a mobile communications mast into the Võrkla grove hill, a highway lay-by to the Adavere sacred grove, the chopping down of the rood trees at Rosma, etc.

About 550 sacred groves are known in Estonia, as well as a few thousand other natural shrines. Barely a fifth of them are under national protection. But as the cases of Kunda, Panga and other groves demonstrate, no holy shrine is safe from destruction.

But now the number is up. It is time to stand up and shout: keep your business plans and machinery away from the holy sites! The sacred groves belong to us as a people. They belong to us, our forbears and to the posterity.

We need the sacred groves to gather and maintain our vitality, to be together with our forbears and earth-gods. The sacred groves are not for business or entertainment. They are for us to remain ourselves as a people, and to endure.

Because of the hostile actions of foreign powers and foreign thinking, today many of the shrines are in a miserable state. But still they endure, until they are built over or mined empty. As long as the land remains at the sacred grove, a new forest may yet spring from it. Let the sacred groves grow!

The concerts take place:
