26 March Demo - There is an alternative


26 March: Together we can achieve anything

Thousands of Scotland UNISON members descended on London today from across the country to join hundreds of thousands in the biggest trade union demonstration in a generation.

Members and friends from Edinburgh came overnight by bus hired by the branch, by train, or caught the very early special STUC train this morning.

Many travelled overnight with trains and buses arriving in London early to join the march. Banners from across Scotland were part of a ribbon of green and purple that snaked past the iconic sights of London to make one simple point - there is an alternative to cuts and to the smashing of our welfare state.

See an 'on march' report from the unofficial UNISONActive blog here.
