Next Saturday, October 1st, I will be speaking at the People First rally in Glasgow.
The event is co-ordinated by the Scottish Trade Union Congress and is supported by a wide range of civil society organisations including faith groups and equality and anti poverty campaigners.
There will be a march from Glasgow Green at 12 noon and the rally in Kelvingrove Park will be from 1.30 to 3.00pm
After the rally the Close the Gap campaign will be having a lauch event at Anderston Parish Church from 3.30-4.30pm
I hope that this day will be a chance for community organisations and social welfare groups to come together to show solidarity with one another and to raise the profile of the impact that cuts will have on the must vulnerable in society.
