Back To The Eighties
Following the 2010 General Election and the formation of the Con-Dem coalition with its policies to cut public spending there has been a revitalisation of political activism in Scotland and the rest of the UK. Almost back to the political activism of the Thatcher Years. Much more attention was focussed on the more violent student demonstrations in London, but the trade unions' Better Way Campaign also organised peaceful protests and demonstrations. These pictures were taken at a demonstration in the centre of Edinburgh in autumn 2010.
