Mary McCabe and her team of stalwarts set up their stalls twice a week in Argyll Street and another team set up another stall once a fortnight in Milngavie. Rain or shine or windy…. they’ll be there. And – they get themselves and their stall to marches, to demos, to events.
A few months back they organised a Hit The Road, Jack demo at the UKGov HQ in Glasgow. More recently they were at Bannockburn March. Mary was one of the speakers, and spoke about the 1800s Scottish Wars of Independence.
They’ve got some new banners for the stall, too. One is research from Ember-Climate Org about how energy flow across the UK are expected to develop in the next 6 years. In a nutshell, Scotland will be providing 40% of UK’s energy supply… all produced from nice clean wind and solar sources.
Last week, the Glasgow Stall gang supported the Cost of Living Crisis demo outside Tesco in St Enoch Square. The demo called on the UK Government to use its reserved powers to tackle inflation by putting a cap on big business profits instead of focussing everything on restraining wages. This year TESCO is expecting a profit of £2.3 billion.
Here they are.
I bet King Robert was impressed with their determination. And by the way, that wreath was in honour of Winnie Ewing.
