1.00pm Thu 2 Jun 2016
Recent public transport fare increases

81 Fair Fares Recent public transport fare increases

Enough is Enough. The latest fare increases from First Bus to the cost of travelling in Glasgow are a hike too far. FirstDay tickets are going from from £4.30 to £4.50 and the network-wide ticket increases 25p to £6. A five-stop journey has gone from 95p to £1:05, to £1:15, £1:20 and now £1:40, a jump of a third in just 3 years. The Aberdeen-based multinational reported an 80% increase in profits last year to £105.8m, so for a city struggling under the impact of austerity these hikes are hard to justify. We are calling on First to scrap these increased charges, in a recognition that the people of Glasgow cannot afford to push their profits any higher this year. Although they have their own issues with fare increases, user surveys regularly show much higher rates of passenger satisfaction in Edinburgh than Glasgow. In the capital, instead of a private corporation the buses remain municipally owned. It is long past time for the Scottish Government to take action against all of Scotland’s monopolistic, profiteering and in cases corrupt local bus operators. Bus re-regulation is an essential move to ensure local communities are once again served by effective, affordable, fully integrated and publicly owned transport services. Buses were de-regulated by Margaret Thatcher in 1985, creating a corporate free-for-all. The SNP supported bus re-regulation, until in 2007 they received significant support from Stagecoach tycoon Brian Souter, and dropped the idea.

Alan Rankine (born 17 May 1958) is a Such a great interview coming up for you on Monday 16th May, 12pm, with Alan Rankine - the musical brains behind The Associates. What can you write or say about the Associates that hasn't already been covered or documented? We'll leave it to Björk... "The Associates went there. They didn't edit their nature out of it. They had pagan qualities. I read a book about Billy MacKenzie, and it said that all the lyrics were composed in the moment, not written down, like a stream of consciousness. For Medulla, I thought about using Billy MacKenzie's voice, and his father sent me old multi-tracks, the original tapes, and I wanted to work on it, celebrating voices, maybe do a duet with him. But when it came to it, I was too sacred."

PROTEST TO OPPOSE HOSPTIAL BEING NAMED AFTER MONARCH live from the new Southern General hospital

The Scottish Government have buried their heads in the sand and are hoping this goes away. Their replies to my email have been nothing short of disgraceful. The more journalists dig into this story, the more questions are raised about the whole saga. In light of this, we have decided to organise a protest on the 23rd of October at 14:30 at the Govan Road entrance to the new hospital. We hope that you can come along to show solidarity with those of us who feel it is unacceptable to name a taxpayer funded public hospital after a monarch, the beacon of inequality. Bring banners (tasteful ones please). For event details. Search PROTEST AT NEW SOUTHERN GENERAL HOSPITAL in Facebook and the page will appear.

Anti-frack/Unconventional Gas Extraction (UGE) groups from across the central belt of Scotland and beyond - including community action groups and other organisations - will be joining forces to actively demonstrate to the Scottish Government, that UCG (Underground Coal Gasification) must be included in the current moratorium, from which it was omitted in the January 2015 statement. From then on, we will be demanding an all-out ban. We have the support of the Broad Alliance and regional action groups from all over Scotland and south of the border. People from all over Scotland are invited to join us in standing on the Forth Road Bridge, from North Queensferry side in Fife to South Queensferry side. In order to do this, we need as many volunteers as possible. It is estimated that we need approximately 1800 people to participate so if you're free and want to be part of urging our government to change something, please come along. If you know any local group/organisation/club who'd be interested in being involved, please share this information/FB event with them. Let's make a hUGE statement and not allow our government to ignore the public outcry and opposition to these processes. Your support is needed at this family-friendly event, organised by and for Scottish Communities, please bring your family, friends and neighbours. Hope to see you all, there! :)

Hope Over Fear are organizing this 2015 event to coincide with the anniversary of the referendum and to make a clear statement that our journey to full Independence for our nation continues. Our First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon has stated clearly that it will be the people of Scotland who will determine if and when there is an #indyref2. Lets fill Freedom Square and the surrounding streets of Glasgow on September 19th to make our voices heard. 2018 is an ideal year for #indyref2 as it is clear in terms of elections north and south of the border. (2016 Scottish parliament, 2017 Scottish council, 2019 English council and 2020 General election.) Join us on the Square with the message, #Indyref2 2018.

HOPE OVER FEAR: SEIZE THE DAY RALLY George Square, Glasgow. Lots of great speakers including Mark McGowan, The Artist Taxi Driver plus great music...

The Hope Over Fear campaign will not shirk its responsibilities. On May 7th 2015 we have a unique opportunity in Scotland to wipe out the blue, yellow and red Tories in one fell swoop. We can electorally punish those who lined up with the billionaires and millionaires to lie, deceive and bully our nation into submission. We are not too small, too poor or too scared to move forward into a new and better world and by uniting the pro-Scotland and anti-Establishment vote in May 2015 we can realise our dreams. Bring the family and enjoy another great day out while listening to the speakers from all political backgrounds and on the importance of using your vote wisely at the general election. There will also be many amazingly talented artists and musicians for you to enjoy on the day. In the words of Gerry Cinnamon's inspiring anthem of our movement, "Hope Over Fear, Carpe Diem". Let’s seize the day in 2015. NOTE: Mark McGowan, The Artist Taxi Driver will be one of the speakers :) FACEBOOK EVENT: https://www.facebook.com/events/401561463337441/

Red Road Flats Demolition RED ALERT DANGER DANGER Covering the controversial demolition of the Red Road Flats

ALSO here for protesters live stream within the danger zone http://livestre.am/5dlJI Highly contentious issue with many locals against the blowing up of these 6 flats at once and want them brought down floor by floor. The flats could still contain asbestos; they are very close to residential areas including a nursery and there is worry about water and gas pipes being burst. See WikiPedia link for more info and criticism of previous Red Row flats that have been blown up. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Road_Flats

BBC Bias Peaceful Protest #2 Around 1:30 - 3:30pm BBC Bias Peaceful Protest #2 - The People's Voice!

BBC Bias Peaceful Protest #2 - The People's Voice! Sunday, June 29 at 1:30pm - 3:30pm BBC Scotland Studios, Pacific Quay G51 1 Glasgow, United Kingdom This is a protest against bias from the self-proclaimed “impartial” BBC. The most important issue we need to highlight is the repeated omission of relevant facts, information & answers that has kept Scotland in the dark about the real independence debate. The BBC’s coverage is ruining the run up to the biggest decision in our history. People are suitably sickened by the BBC & other mainstream media and their one sided conveyor belt of scare stories portrayed against our economic prospects, EU membership and the currency of an independent Scotland. Sometimes the bias is not in what they do cover but what they don't cover in their news & current affairs programmes. Specific examples of bias that concerns us are as follows: Make up of Question Time panels. Irish & Luxembourg EU ministers views misrepresented. UKIP promotion during EU elections. University of the West of Scotland report on bias on evening news programmes (BBC & STV) University of the West of Scotland report on bias on Radio Scotland Good Morning Scotland show The BBC's membership of the CBI which opposes independence and even tried to become an official member of the no campaign until a U turn after a mass cancellation of membership by Scottish companies. Different styles of questioning for Yes/No including more frequent interruptions from interviewers. The list goes on… Let's keep up the pressure on the old BBC and arrange their next outing as a massive anti-bias operation! Bring your saltires, banners, balloons, friends, family and loud voices. Make it a day to remember! Everyone is welcome from both sides of the debate. Groups that wish to protest about other instances of BBC bias unrelated to the independence debate are also more than welcome to attend.
