‘Tis the end of the first week of term – we’ve been pretty busy!
The following months are going to be key, as we coordinate with other groups across Edinburgh, Scotland, the UK, and even globally!
Some Dates for Your Diary
Right to Work protest – RBS Headquarters in Edinburgh – 4pm – Friday 21st – St Andrew’s Square
Black Triangle (a disability rights group) will be demonstrating outside the Scottish HQs of Atos Origin on the 24th of January – The assault on disability claimants by this government is sickening. 10am – Livingston (just outside the city) – Facebook event
The 24th of January will be our next main meeting – details nearer the time
We are currently looking at how to get as many of us to Manchester for the TUC/NUS/UCU organised demo on the 29th of January (coinciding with the demo in Westminster – called by the EAN and NCAFC). But, alas, money and time is tight for organising transport as a group
Edinburgh Anti-Cuts Alliance Conference on 26th February – Location TBC (hopefully at the University of Edinburgh) – Details to follow nearer the time

UKuncut Protest – 15th January
Despite the weather the protest proved a great success – the public were very receptive. We occupied the HSBC branch on Princes Street, as well as protesting outside Bhs, Boots, TopShop and Vodafone – all guilty of major corporate tax dodging.
There are some nice photos too!
