Pedal on Parliament is just over a week away now and you can help them raise some much needed funds to help the running of the days by purchasing one of this years t-shirts. Not only that but by wearing one you will help spread the word and look pretty swanky while you’re at it.
With only three weeks to go Pedal on Parliament need your help to get the word out there that this is happening on Saturday 28th April – just over two weeks to go!! Protests will also happen in Inverness on the 28th and Aberdeen the following day on Sunday 29th.
Byres Road – once a vibrant and eclectic place to visit, shop & congregate is in gradual decline. Street stalwarts such as The Sentry Box Toy Shop have been forced to close their doors & small indie businesses are struggling to survive.
Media reports & public debate often cite lack of parking spaces as a factor. Elsewhere Carnaby Street in London, the Latin Quarter in Paris, Stroget in Denmark & our very own Buchanan Street are bustling – but very much catering for people rather than vehicles.
Proposals for how the Low Emission Zones in Glasgow will run have just come out and they fall way below expectations. We have an urgent request for your help from Friends of the Earth who have an e-action open here calling for their reform. It only takes half a minute – please support this if you can.
We are really sorry to announce that Saturday’s WCV Campaigners Training Day has had to be postponed due to the weather. We are sorry to disappoint but will aim to get a new date out for this as soon as we can. All ticket holders have been contacted but please do share the word around anyone you know who had been planning on coming on the day.
