Join us on 20 October 2012 


Troops out of Afghanistan

The STUC is organising a mass demonstration on 20th October in Glasgow. The event will coincide with a similar event in London under the banner ‘A future that works’.
The Coalition Government may be in crisis but they are still refusing to change course from their dangerous and damaging programme of cuts and austerity.
On the morning of Saturday 20th October, trade unionists and community activists from across Scotland will gather for a march through Glasgow to play our part in telling the Government that enough is enough.
In the coming weeks you can come to this site to download publicity materials, find out about transport, or volunteer to help on the day.
