Glasgow Pensioners’ Demo

Last week Greater Glasgow Pensioners for Indy staged a demonstration in Atlantic Square outside the UKGov Glasgow Hub. This is a substantial office building housing several thousand employees and known – in Indy circles – as Governor General Alister Jack’s Glasgow HQ. He has another one over in Edinburgh.

People came up from Dumfries & Galloway, over from Edinburgh, Fife and Hamilton. Mary McCabe and the Glasgow P4Indy Stall Team, who organised the demo, were pleased with the turnout. We got toots from passing traffic. The Polis even showed up and chatted to us!
