Scottish Independence Begins Again – Saturday 30th July 2016 – Glasgow

Hi, hope you are all well and enjoying your summer.  Unfortunately, July in the West of Scotland has been a wash out.  Hopefully August will be much better.

Today there was a March for Independence which started at the West End of the City and made its way to George Square.  It was great to see the flags back in the City as well as a few “well kent” faces in the crowds.  The March and Rally went off peacefully and what started as a wet morning turned into quite a nice afternoon.

I hope you like some of my pictures which are below.

Glasgow’s Needy at George Square – Saturday 29 November 2014

I met with Andrew and Darren Carnegie today at George Square in Glasgow.  Darren was once again bringing to the attention of passers by the plight of the poor in Glasgow.  He was collecting more presents for the starving children and food for the hungry.  The pair work tirelessly for the needy in Glasgow.  They are up against a lot of people very anti them but they carry on regardless with a passion that is so strong when they talk to you, you can almost feel it.  I was not able to stay around and take many photos today but the short time I was with them it came to my mind that rising above them was a sign saying ‘People Make Glasgow’ and I thought if ‘people Make Glasgow’ why are there so many starving children and families that live below the breadline in some of the council estates outside the City Centre and people living rough in and around the City.  I also noticed there were more people begging on the streets and I did not like that as I feel in this day and age we should not have the social problems that we do.  I was horrfied at the pictures I saw in local and not so local Tesco stores yesterday.  The needy in Glasgow cannot afford to go to the sales and yet there were people with money who were grabbing items from folk and pushing and shoving it was awful and quite honestly embarrasing to watch human beings acting in this way.

Glasgow’s Needy’s motto is ‘End Poverty Now’ I hope and pray that they can.
