Marching for independence, Glasgow, 20th April 2024

Organised by Believe in Scotland and Pensioners for Indy, this is the first of this year’s Marching for Independence days. The theme is End Pensioner Poverty. The March and Rally on 20th is followed by a day of campaigning action in Glasgow Southside on 21st April.

Here TNT show host John Drummond chats with Gordon MacIntyre-Kemp from Believe in Scotland and Marlene Halliday from Pensioners for Independence on the eve of the first Believe in Scotland March and Rally in Glasgow.

A range of fantastic speakers have been announced, including First Minister Humza Yousaf. Here they are. Well nearly all of them. A late addition is Richie Venton of the Scottish Socialist Party.

Marching for Independence. Believe in Scotland. Pensioners for Independence.

There has also been a spat with the Alba Party. So not without its headaches for organisers Gordon and Marlene.  Still, they are still positive it will be a fantastic day.

Indypodcaster Marlene will be on stage while Fiona will be in George Square helping to run the Yes Stones / Yes Slates stall, so do come by and say hello!

Hope the weather gods are kind to us and we all have a fantastic day!  We will cover the speeches from the event in a separate broadcast.

Gordon, Marlene and the organising team have been doing a lot work to get this event under way. We caught up with them last month. You can see that interview here Pensioners on the March

Gordon has been a guest on our podcasts a few times now. You’ll find those podcasts in this playlist.
