Join Glasgow march against cuts and poverty

27 September 2011

Scotland flagThe march will go from Glasgow Green to Kelvingrove Park where thousands will assemble to hear speeches and music before attending a range of fringe events held in places of worship, student unions, public buildings and hotels in the vicinity of the park.

The event will also feature a specific initiative to raise funds for the Disasters Emergency Committee appeal created to help those hit by famine in Africa.

Equity will be on march, so look out for the Equity flag.

Sponsoring and supporting organisations for the event will be very diverse, but have in common the aim of working together on a non-partisan basis to:

• challenge poverty levels and campaign for redistribution of wealth across Scotland and the UK;

• campaign to protect those hardest hit by service and benefit cuts; and;

• help to build and reconnect Scotland’s communities.
