Join us for the St Andrew's Day Rally on 25th November at 12 noon in the Castlegate, Aberdeen

Please come along to the Aberdeen's St Andrew's Day Rally on Saturday 25th November 2017 at 12 noon in the Castlegate.

Please note that there will be no march this year due to prohibitive cost.

Organised by Aberdeen Trades Union Council, this year's St Andrew's Day event will once again celebrate the diversity of the North East of Scotland. It will call on us all to "Educate, Agitate and Organise" to bring an end to racism and fascism and to fight for equality and social justice for all.

ATUC joint president, Kevin Hutchens said, "We would like as many people as possible to join us for this rally to give a clear message that we still keep alive the proud history of the North East of Scotland of fighting fascism and racism wherever it rears its ugly head.

"We will hear from a range of speakers from community groups and local politicians, all giving this same message. Please come along."
