PRESS RELEASE … for immediate use (22nd April)
24 HOUR VIGIL AND BLOCKADE OF GLASGOW CITY CHAMBERS
As decision-day at the Glasgow city council looms, parents and carers in the Glasgow Save Our School Campaign have decided to hold a 24-hour vigil outside the City Chambers from 12 midday today (Weds), in the run-up to the Mass Blockade of the meeting at 12noon on Thursday.
Glasgow Save Our Schools Campaign organiser, Richie Venton, today said:
“People who care for their kids and communities are full of fear for the future, fury at Labour councillors who threaten the closures, and firm determination to fight on
“The peaceful vigil will have a stark message to Steven Purcell and his team of councillors: we are watching you!
“Watching whether Purcell has the decency to meet parents and try to justify the indefensible closures, after going into hiding for weeks.
“Watching whether at least 7 Labour councillors have the principles and strength of character to rebel against the closures of all the schools and nurseries, and help stop larger classes, in old buildings, with less staff being the fate of our kids.
“The vigil will help spread the message to the public that when the Council meets to vote on Thursday, they should encounter a mass human blockade demanding they save our schools or face the sack, that they should put kids before cash.”
