Pensioners on the March – Are your boots made for walkin’? 

Cos it’s only two weeks till the Glasgow March & Rally on Saturday 20th April. Jointly hosted by Believe in Scotland and Pensioners for Independence, the march starts in Kelvingrove Park and finishes in George Square.

Scottish IndyPodcasters met up with Gordon McIntyre-Kemp of Believe in Scotland and our own IndyPodcaster Marlene Halliday, who is also a member of P4Indy. Both Gordon and Marlene will be speaking at the Rally. They told us all about their plans and in particular about the idea of a Festival of Independence,  what’s going on behind the scenes, which speakers have confirmed so far and what else Believe in Scotland is planning for a summer of activism.

The slogan for the event is #EndPensionerPoverty. We talked to Gordon a wee while back about his polling and research for a developing our economy on a well-being economy basis. That plans includes a well-being pension.

PS If your boots, feet, knees, or hips are not for joining the March

…. then just come to George Square for the Rally. It’s easy to get there on public transport, the stalls will be there, there’s benches to sit on, and there’s lots of cafes nearby.

Sign up here to get updates on the event: March and Rally for an Independent Scotland. .More information (and tickets for the afterparty) from Believe in Scotland.
