East End Carers Call For End To Media Silence!


A protest was held yesterday at Glasgow City Chambers to oppose the closure of the Accord centre in Dalmarnock. East End Carers, who have set up the Save the Accord Centre campaign, successfully disrupted an executive council committee meeting, where Labour councillor Matt Kerr and others responsible for the proposed closure were present, and held a three hour long picket, with chants, placards, banners and leaflets helping to publicize their struggle.

The campaigners were joined by supporters of Fight Racism! Fight Imperialism! (FRFI), the Glasgow Defence Campaign (GDC) and the International Socialist Group (ISG) who helped call for an end to the media silence. The Scottish media have refused to report on the campaign and any other story which sheds negative publicity on the 2014 Commonwealth Games. The masks were to symbolise the media's silence.

We say Commonwealth Games, Commonwealth Shame!

Save the Accord Centre Now!
