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.
