Red n Black Bloc, February 15, Glasgow 
by Scottish Anarchists 11:41am Mon Feb 3 '03 (Modified on 1:51pm Mon Feb 3 '03)  
Scottish Anarchists call for a red and black contingent on the
Glasgow anti-war march, which looks like being the biggest of it?s
type for years in the city. Tony Blair will be in town for the day,
addressing his minions at the SECC on the Clydeside, and that is
where the biggest anti-war demo in Scotland for years is heading...

The march looks set for a showdown with everyone?s favourite
defenders of the rich, as the Police are making noises, hinting at
roadblocks, an exclusion zone and a curfew in the area of the
SECC for the duration of the Nu-Labour Spring conference. 

Organisers in Glasgow are expecting thousands of people to travel
from the North of England to join at least 20,000 in Glasgow,
rather than head to London. 

This is a call for all anarchists, anti-capitalists, left libertarians,
and all the various anti-authoritarian groups and individuals
considering participation in the anti-war demo in Glasgow on
February 15th, to march together as a united red and black

The meet-up point for the demo has been changed from George
Square to The People?s Palace on Glasgow Green, as a result of
the numbers expected on the day. The move-off time will be
11:00am, and Blair plans to speak at around 2:00pm. We hope to
have the place surrounded before then, for what the organisers are
calling a ?Jericho Rumpus?. 

If we can?t get near the building, it should be noted that Glasgow
is blessed with loads of mega motorways carving up the city,
keeping the local cogs of capitalism turning, which also means
that there are plenty of opportunities to chuck a spanner or two in
the works. The Clydeside Expressway runs alongside the SECC, for
example. The footbridge across it will be closed for ?security
reasons?, but I don?t think we really need a bridge. 

Also near the SECC is the Orwellian MOD building, Kentigern
House, some army recruitment offices, a Territorial Army base,
the city?s business zone, and of course major shopping areas. In
other words, they?re going to need a big bastardin exclusion zone
if they want to keep everyone away from symbols of capital and

So, come and join us in a united voice, not just against this war,
not for pacifism, but against all wars but the class war. Anarchos
and assorted anti-authoritarians from across Scotland and
Northern England will be meeting up under the big red and black

No doubt when the demo moves off we will be near the end of the
march, but it is important to get to the SECC for 1:30pm when
Blair is in the area. And the route is 2.5 miles.
