At last after long negotiations with Glasgow City Council the Scrap Trident Coalition can now announce that the assembly point for the march and the venue for the rally and speakers following it will be George Square.
Assemble George Square 10.15am
March starts 10.45am
Rally George Square 11.45am to 1.15pm
This means that unfortunately the joint singing session will not now take place, perhaps another time.
We plan to meet at the corner of George Square nearest Queen Street Station at Burger King, West George Street, at 10.15am. The banner will be visible. This is handy for those travelling through by bus, underground or train.
We are to sing 3 songs at the end of the march and these are:
Bin the Bomb
Freedom Come All ye
We’re not going away
We will be singing from the top deck of an open-topped bus!
This will essentially be a performance so we should know the words of the songs, or at least be very familiar with them. This makes such a difference when we can sing out without looking down at words. It also means that we can look at the song-leader and follow her instructions better. We do sing well, this is a real opportunity to put our message across.
