63 Spanish Local Elections - The Aftermath with Simon Harris & David McGowran Round up of the recent Spanish local elections outcome

The outcome of the Spanish local elections has left a situation which from the outside is rather difficult to make sense of. There is however, a great deal of meaning here and from Barcelona and Madrid respectfully, Catalan writer Simon Harris and IndependenceLive.net presenter David McGowran will be giving you the view from the inside.

"Defy Tory Rule": Queen's Speech SSP Rally in Edinburgh

44 "Defy Tory Rule": Queen's Speech SSP Rally in Edinburgh The length and breadth of Scotland the Scottish Socialist Party is organising and coordinating a series of protests to simultaneously speak out against planned Conservative cuts to vital Health services and vital social security.

The length and breadth of Scotland the Scottish Socialist Party is organising and coordinating a series of protests to simultaneously speak out against planned Conservative cuts to vital Health services and vital social security. From Westminster, on Wednesday, the Queen's Speech will offer a taste of what is to come from the Conservative government. Much more will follow in terms of cuts. Right out across the country, on that same day, these rallies will offer back a taste of what is to come. Much more will follow in terms of speaking up for a progressive alternative. So join us at the Mound, down by Princes street at 5.30pm. We'll rally together, then be running a stall to circulate material calling out the Tories, and maybe even send folk to picket outside the Scottish Conservative central office. So get creative: bring your placards, bring your banners, bring yourselves.

518 Bouncers off Campus The University has hired private security guards – in their dozens and at a cost of tens of thousands – to block access to the occupation and to protect their investments in fossil fuels. Charles Stewart House, Chambers Street, Edinburgh

The University has hired private security guards – in their dozens and at a cost of tens of thousands – to block access to the occupation and to protect their investments in fossil fuels. Since the security have arrived, they’ve made serious threats to students and members of the occupation, and earlier today they slammed a student to the ground by their neck and strangled them. This guard has been charged with assault, but that’s not enough. No one is safe with these thugs on campus. The University need to get rid of them immediately. More than that, the University need to divest from fossil fuels and stop funding climate change and the destruction of our planet.

249 SWP - Where next for the left? With Charlie Kimber, SWP; Angela McCormick, TUSC candidate Glasgow North; and Glasgow Homeless Caseworker strikers

Just a week after the General Election revolt is in the air. Over 4000 demonstrated in Bristol. Nearly 400 came to Manchester's Peoples Assembly organising meeting. And major J20 demos are planned for Glasgow, London and Cardiff. As Labour goes into meltdown we have to build resistance to coming Tory welfare cuts and restrictions on unions' rights to organise. The election of 56 SNP MPs shows there is no mandate for Tory Rule in Scotland, or anywhere in the UK. The SNP government and SNP/ Labour councils should stop implementing Tory cuts now. Come along to our public meeting and discuss how we can build the strikes and protests and unite the left.

756 What now for a British Left? Post Referendum and a Tory win in the General Election, what now for a British Left?

Post Referendum and a Tory win in the General Election, what now for a British Left? We have seen a new and compelling left narrative led by the Scots and Welsh. Anti-austerity, against Trident and a thirst for an ‘all of us first politics’. Social Democracy has largely failed, but on the fringes of Europe we are seeing new left parties growing in confidence and support. The Scottish awakening has had many supporters and admirers in other parts of the UK. Ideas and organisation are not limited to Scotland, and are needed across these isles more than ever. What are our shared goals and how should we work together? How can we challenge the growing consensus for Tory politics? What are the next steps for any incarnation of the British left? In collaboration with the Radical Hope series taking place across England, Common Weal are delighted to be hosting a panel and discussion chaired by Common Weal Policy Director, Peter McColl, with: Neal Lawson, Chair of COMPASS Isobel Lindsay, Vice-Chair of Scottish CND Sarah Collins, Scottish Left Project and UNISON. The event will take place at the City of Edinburgh Methodist Church 25 Nicolson Square, EH8 9BX Edinburgh.

450 Ending Scottish Arms Trade with Israel International Conference "Ending Scottish Arms Trade with Israel" brings together a range of speakers to make the case that ending this commerce in death is both necessary and possible.

International Conference "Ending Scottish Arms Trade with Israel" brings together a range of speakers to make the case that ending this commerce in death is both necessary and possible. It will be an opportunity for participants to build a broad, dynamic campaign to end the sale of weapons to Israel that are used in the commission of war crimes and crimes against humanity. Condemning the ‘deep inhumanity’ of Israel’s devastation of Gaza last summer, the Scottish Government added its voice to that of Amnesty International in calling for a suspension of arms deliveries to the State of Israel. It will take a determined civil society effort, however, to bring about such an embargo that can help to end the periodic massacres that have been the lot of the Palestinian people. Humanitarian support for the Palestinians under occupation, or symbolic gestures such as flying a Palestinian flag, can never be enough when Scotland supplies Israel with guidance systems for 500lb bombs that Israel drops on the most crowded place on earth, Gaza, killing thousands of people in that open air prison. The talks in the Renfield Centre’s main auditorium and workshops in adjoining rooms will be an opportunity for participants to develop a campaign to end Scottish factories providing Israel with the means to carry out crimes against the Palestinian people. The conference will take place in The Renfield Centre, 260 Bath Street, Glasgow G2 4JP

684 Glasgow May Day March and Rally Thousands of trade unionists and supporters will march through Glasgow to celebrate the international workers day. This year theme is on young people as they face the brunt of unjust austerity.

Thousands of trade unionists and supporters will march through Glasgow to celebrate the international workers day. Organised by Glasgow Trades Union Council this celebration looks to reach out to all those striving for justice peace and equality in our city. This year theme is on young people as they face the brunt of unjust austerity enduring insecure low paid employment, zero hour contracts and cuts to educational services. That is why it is our young people who will proudly lead May Day parade demonstrating that the trade union movement is a forward looking movement proud of our past while focusing on the struggle for a fair and equal future. At Glasgow O2 Academy on Bridge St there will be a range of speakers, stalls and a friendly welcoming environment where we can talk about our experiences of the past year and our hopes for the coming one. May Day is also a wider cultural celebration and will feature a diverse range of social and cultural events leading up to the May Day parade. Speakers include a live video link with the USA's Fast Food Forward movement, Gordon Maloney NUS President speaking on the need for a Living Rent and representatives of the Glasgow Girls.

From a Woman's Perspective: Universal Basic Income Another installment of the year long series.

While this night is focusing on the Women's or Feminist case for UBI we are encouraging everyone to get involved in the audience, not just women. We hope this is clear. The Penultimate Event in a year long movement involved in bringing together local artists and activists with local politicians and university proffesors/students actively engaged with bringing to light the oppertunities and obstacles surrounding a policy like universal basic income/ Citizens income / Basic income or however you would like to name it. Free Entry and 6pm Start, Sharp. This Particular Event focus's on the Women's/ Feminist Perspective due to there being allot of interest in a focused night of this nature at previous events. Speakers include Hosted by Molly McLachlan Annie Miller : From the CBIN Network Jen Broadhurst : From Glasgow Calladonian University and Zara Kitson : From the Scotish Greens Also spoken word performance by Elaine Gallagher Live Music from Sev Ka ( Sev Dudinska ) and Live Presentation from Rebecca L W Jen Broadhurst : I'll be looking at BI from a feminist economist perspective. Mainly how much the social security system has consistently ignored the needs and roles of women from its inception through to how BI could begin to right that wrong. I'll also be looking at the similarities now for intersectional women from black, Asian and ethnic minorities and those with disabilities are treated in the design of welfare policy. Please Share the event around and lets give these fantastic speakers and performers a good audience :) Thanks for getting involved and see you all soon.

Oppose the Nazi White Pride March in Edinburgh - Nae Nazis! Unite Against Fascism call on people to stand with them to oppose National front / White Pride

It is with disgust that we announce that the poisonous, travelling nazi rump called the National Front intend to come to Edinburgh city centre on the 25th of March to hold a ‘White Pride March’. The National Front are a pale shadow of that they were in the 1970s, when they achieved 100,000s of votes in elections and represented a real threat to black, Asian and other minorities on the streets. Because of constant and united work by the Anti-Nazi League, UAF and other anti-fascists over the last few decades, this tiny rump of fascists do not represent the threat that they once did. However, emboldened by election events in Austria, by nazi Le Pen’s polling in France, by Islamophobic Geert Wilders’ polling in the Netherlands and by the influence of white nationalists in Donald Trump’s team these fascists feel confident they can come to the streets of our multicultural city. These fascists look across parts of Europe and want to emulate fascist Jobbik in Hungary or Golden Dawn in Greece. Edinburgh has a fine tradition of stopping racists and Nazis. Should the nazi National Front decided to step foot in Edinburgh, we call upon all anti-racists and anti-fascists to take part in the broadest united mobilisation. UAF Scotland has a long history of countering and ensuring that fascists do not get a toe-hold in our communities. Only recently, anti-fascists ensured that the nazi Blood and Honour gig was cancelled in Scotland due to mass opposition. We won’t stand for their racism, their Islamophobia, their scapegoating of migrants and refugees. We will push them back like we did with the SDL, the EDL and the BNP. Please share this event with your friends, family, work mates. Assemble 12.45pm, Waverley Train Station (Market St entrance)

The YES Movement A non party afiliated rally for Scottish Independence

The Yes Movement Rally on the 18th of September 2016, this is being held at Glasgow Green from 12pm until 8pm. This is going to be a day to remember. Why come? Why Volunteer? I would like to tell thee. Have any of you ever felt like you were here, to do something great with your life? Well you are and this is why we are all here. We are here to change the world. It is no easy task, but to us it is clear that the task is ours. That is why they called us the Bravest in all the stories. We will show the world there is another way to live, that social and cultural change is inevitable and that a new way of doing things is being birthed. A great human being once said 'Be the change you wish to see in the world'. For too long we have been realising that the entire system is corrupt. We have waited for those in power to change things, For someone to stand up and do what's right. None of them have, not really. We are creating this Movement together. As Humanity we can free ourselves from this system that none of us agreed to when we were born here, by taking our power back and in doing that, we show others how to free themselves from the Elitist system. To put it bluntly, the days of working to pay bills and die are over. We want more for ourselves and the generations to come. We stand for Equality, Contributing and Pioneering our own future. There are new way's to do things now and we all know that, we must venture into the unknown and discover 'HOW?' together. Please email [email protected] Your expertise as a wonderful human being is required if you are a First Aider, Stage Hand, Steward, Chaperone or you would like to set up a stall for the day. Please also feel free to contact us if you have any suggestions/ ideas, or if you would like to help us in anyway. All contributions are most welcomed. The system we live under is broken, we're not fixing it. We want to create a new one. Go bravely friends. We are the change bringers. Please Share this message, We look forward to hearing from you.

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.
