Thanks to Bob Hamilton for capturing the mood of the protest in George Square on the 4th of April. Hundreds came to show their support for the meadow and wood.
There was a collection of excellent speeches from many different users and supporters of the land, including Green MSP Patrick Harvie and SNP councillor Billy McAllister.
Gordon Matheson was out of the country and so he couldn’t make it down to speak to us.

Well done to everyone who made it along. We’re one more step towards saving our meadow and wood.
