We are a new group that came together because we found out that Glasgow
was going to be one of the trial sites for the biometric ID card scheme
and we felt that this was a serious threat to our civil liberties.
We have started educating ourselves about the issue, produced a leaflet,
and have called a public meeting on Thursday 20th May, 7pm, at the printworks
social centre, 58 Albion St, in the merchant city (0141 552 4551) to try and
get more people involved in the campaign and to inform people of what we have
found out. Thousands of leaflets have so far been distributed and information
is being collected and stockpiled in the printworks social centre for future
use during the campaign.

We have started having regular meetings every Thursday at 7pm at printworks
and we would really welcome anyone else who wanted to get involved.

»Who are We?« The Glasgow Autonomous Project is a collective currently
operating a community action resource centre in Glasgow's city centre.
58, Albion St (corner of Bell St) Merchant City G1 1LH noon to 9pm every day
Though the current space is only temporary, our long term aim is still
to establish a permanent radical resource in the heart of the city.
Our main aims in founding the centre are to encourage
individuals and groups in the Glasgow area to take more control
of their lives - to work together for social change, rather than
depending upon political parties and other bosses, to participate
directly in building a better society through grassroots
organisation. Our guiding principles are solidarity and mutual aid.
The group currently includes individuals who are interested in a
wide variety of issues, including workplace organisation,
claimants' rights, anti-war activism, refugee support, Palestinian
rights, indigenous peoples' struggles, fighting racism and
fascism.

We are always looking for more like-minded people to get
involved. If you have an event/meeting/gig/whatever that you'd
like to put on in the centre during May, or if you'd just like to get
involved - please get in touch.
