A Better Way

Joined the huge better way demo in Edinburgh last week, marching in protest at the cuts – 20,000 of us I am told.  It was great to have the bands playing and even the weather seemed to be on our side.  We were marching for a better way to deal with the present economic problems than the government’s programme of draconian cuts.    What a cheek!  Making the public sector pay the cost of bailing out the banks, while they carry on paying themselves massive bonuses.  That money would be better spent on all the amazing new green technologies that could provide jobs and help us create a better future. It was good to stand/walk alongside other Greens and show how strongly we feel about this issue
