Deep pockets should NEVER control the law

We are a small farm in the Highlands of Scotland, our existence has been under threat since refusing to do what a large group including a professional investor looking to make money who lives 5000miles away wanted us to do. The farm is our life.

We have been attacked twice through litigation whilst only wanting to exist peacefully. A letter we received from 5000miles away states to buckle up and that a group with deep pockets will take up all our time and resources because we won`t do what they want. It states we are in for the fight of our lives.

Our farm was started in 2006 from nothing-blood, sweat and tears as well as a understanding bank helped us create something we are proud of. We rent some land to the group for £1 which was to assist the local area however the project has been hijacked in ways we can still not believe.

A very real threat exists that those with deeper pockets than us will force us out.

Please help us and our 50 cows and calves to survive fighting 5 lawyers with vast knowledge of the legal systems.

Thank you for help it means so much to us

Deep pockets should NEVER control the law

https://dwdt.co.uk/whistleblowingAfter some detective work during today’s update we have confirmed there are active attempts to sabotage this crowdJUSTICE by a supposed ‘backer’ of the fundraiser. Things are becoming very interesting/newsworthy!

Crowdjustice have asked for a further update to be added..with link.

A link is attached which provides some(not all)of the problems we have been up against (and involving whom) over the past 5 years.

Justice WILL come, like the post office and Alan Bates it sometimes takes time and the will to ensure cover ups do not succeed.

Fighting for the truth for everyone

On Saturday 8th June I attended GlenWyvis Distillery agm. I was horrified to listen to false information provided to the audience by representatives. Information is recorded as evidence for future hearings. What can you do? The post office enquiry has brought to all our attention the levels individuals & a large organisation will go to to cover up financial irregularities. If you are a member or know a member of GlenWyvis Distillery you can bring to their attention the lack of transparency within this community organisation. A fellow retired soldier & member of the distillery contacted me after the agm to advise that questions he had posted online on the live agm Q & A were not shown but removed. The level of deceit can only be described as akin to the sort of communication control in Russia. It has been brought to my attention that a anonymous backer of this crowdjustice may be linked to the distillery, now that is true espionage Russian style!
Fighting for truth & transparency for all, if the spy is reading this we are not afraid 💪John McKenzie

Success! A little from a lot goes a long way!

Crowdfunding for legal fees against individuals controlling a democratic organisation i founded was not something i ever envisioned. Although i am defending our farm it is of course about defending what was created by us over many years. GlenWyvis Distillery was to be community owned, run & above all democratic. The professional elite with their ‘deep pockets’. skills & knowledge of various financial systems must not be allowed to take my farm or a locally owned distillery from Dingwall. Once the truth is out there(the whole truth) i am confident as a group we can defend against these strategic take overs.

The REAL Facts on who owns the Farm Renewable Energy Systems

The following article appeared in the press in 2023. It is important that the public are made aware that our farm owns the renewable energy systems not the distillery-we manages the farm electricity system daily that GlenWyvis distillery draws energy from for free. Despite repeated formal requests by solicitors the distillery has refused to pay for the increasing costs of imported electricity despite mentioning the increases in the article below! Is it all a game to the legal eagles within the distillery? You decide..
