    May 11, 1660 Peace Now: Construction for largest Virginia settlement has begun! The English anti-settlement group "Peace Now" said Sunday that renovation work has recently begun for the construction of 14 housing units in the colonial capital Williamsburg, VA, where plans are in the works for the largest English neighbo(u)rhood in that part of the city. Some 50 English families currently live in six buildings in Jamestown, where a millionaire from Lancashire recently purchased land for a European settlement. ... When the two neighbo(u)rhoods are completed and linked, the English settlement of more than 1,000 people will be situated in the heart of the Commonwealth of Virginia, a neighbo(u)rhood comprising 14,000 Amerindians. Peace Now is an activist group dedicated to ending English settlements and English presence in the Americas, and has called the idea of an independent, European-majority United States as "dangerous" and "absurd".
