Scottish Equalities Bulletin Issue No.19


The STUC is once again proud to be organising the Annual St Andrew’s Day Anti Racism Event on Saturday 25 November 2006. This year, the Anti Racism and Fascism March will assemble at 10.30 am at Blythswood Square, Glasgow, marching off at 11am through the streets of Glasgow to the ABC concert hall, Sauchiehall Street, at which there will be a festival event, starting at 12 noon and concluding at approximately 3.30 pm. The event in the ABC will have a range of activities that are attractive to all people, including:

  • Food and hot snacks to purchase
  • Soft drinks, hot drinks and beverages available from a licensed bar area
  • Music
  • Solidarity stalls and commercial exhibitors
  • Children’s games and activities
  • Art displays

As ever, it is vital that this year’s event attracts a large turnout, to tackle racist and fascist views, to give a clear demonstration that Scotland stands together against racism, and to celebrate equality and diversity in Scotland.

I would encourage affiliates to identify individuals to assist with the stewarding of the event. Stewards play an essential role in the organisation of the event, and it would be really helpful if affiliates could forward names of people to steward to Helen Carson at the STUC. A briefing for stewards is available, and stewards are asked to turn up at Blythswood Square on Saturday 25 November at 10.00 am, so as we can run through the format of the event.
