Peace Symbol in Glasgow

Supporters of the Scottish Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament will gather in George Square, Glasgow, to form a large human peace/CND symbol between 11 am and 12 noon on Saturday 17 September. The “Make Peace Festival” takes place 50 years after mass protests against Polaris on 17 September 1961. These resulted in 321 arrests at Holy Loch and 1,200 arrests at Trafalgar Square, London. Details are available at www.banthebomb.org/makepeace

The festival will be chaired by Isobel Lindsay, Vice Chair of Scottish CND, who organised the demonstration at Holy Loch in 1961.  Isobel said:

 

"At a time when social services are being cut and so many young people are struggling to find jobs, our society should not be spending billions of pounds on weapons designed to kill millions of people.  If we had invested constructively the vast wealth which has been wasted over the past fifty years on nuclear weapons, Scotland and the world would be safer, happier and healthier."

 

Speakers will be Bill Kidd MSP, Patrick Harvie MSP and Baillie Tommy Morrison (on behalf of the Lord Provost of Glasgow).  There will be music, stalls and activities for children.

 

There will be a display of children's pictures.  350 children sent entries to the Paint for Peace competition and prizes will be awarded to the winners. This is one of many events taking place around the world in support of the United Nations International Day of Peace which is four days later (21 September).
