20 October - Glasgow, Are you ready?

#Oct20 The Scottish Trade Union Congress (STUC) is mobilising for a mass anti-austerity demonstration in Glasgow on 20 October coinciding with the London demonstration.  The STUC will be applying for George Square to be part of the October 20th event but is awaiting approval from Glasgow City Council which is reviewing use of the Square for public demonstrations.

STUC is calling on trade unionists to support its request by writing to Glasgow City Council at: processions@glasgow.gov.uk

“George Square, Glasgow is a very important civic space, and the right to peaceful protest is a basic civil right. I want to be in George Square on October 20th and I oppose any attempt to end the use of George Square for such purposes”
