Please note that this is a social and educational event organised by the Edinburgh Young Greens. This event is open to the public. What's so radical about the radical road?

Why did a British political leader have to leave a Canongait pub with a police escort? When was Edinburgh's golden age of rioting? All or none of these questions will be answered as political history buff and Vice Convenor of the Edinburgh Green Party, Peter McColl leads us on a radical tour of Edinburgh to escape the Fringe and uncover our chaotic and inspiring history.

Facebook Button Directs through To http://www.word-power.co.uk/ Admission free. Donations Welcome! "[It] draws on Muir scholarship and imagination to tell the compelling story of Muir's trajectory as radical, agitator and democratic hero.... It has been deeply researched and considered, and the author pays the reader the compliment of detailed and thoughtful footnotes and a helpful bibliography... " David Stenhouse, Scotland on Sunday 'The Liberty Tree' is a historical novel about the life and struggles of the Scottish Radical Thomas Muir (1765 – 1799). At the same time the author recreates events using the actual recorded words of the participants (eg. the famous exchanges between Braxfield and Gerrald during the latter's trial) and as such 'The Liberty Tree' also stands as a vivid, well-researched historical account of the life of Thomas Muir. MURRAY ARMSTRONG was born in Airdrie, Lanarkshire. He was a journalist who spent the final twenty-one years of his career at the Guardian which he joined in 1987 as a features sub-editor. He was Associate Editor at the time of his early retirement in 2008 which he took with the express intention of writing about Thomas Muir having nurtured an interest in the man and his times for many years.

159 Fanfare by Bike Brass Bands play along the Water of Leith

Gavin is getting on his bike and ,weather permitting, going to follow the Water of Leith from Balerno to Leith . Why? not just because its a great journey peppered with social and historical significance but..... "Fanfare is a city-wide event that harnesses the enormous forces of Scotland’s community of brass bands by working with the Scottish Brass Band Association to present a day of free performances for everyone to enjoy, inspired by the performances of En avant, marche! Throughout the day, audiences across the city will be able to share the joy and passion of the live brass band. Everyone will be listening to the same pieces of music at the same time in at least 12 different locations around the city. The first brass bands, many of which still exist today, were formed in Scotland in the early 1800s and are among the earliest forms of music ensemble in the country. Hundreds of bands grew up in both urban and rural areas as working people seized the opportunity to share their creativity and talent. The brass band was, and still is, an art form that is from, of, and for local communities. Fanfare aims to capture this spirit of community by inviting everyone in the city to experience the joy of brass band music together." Coverage will be broken is to Segments as I make progress down the river at the different event locations. Make it along if you can.

The monument is 27.4m (90 feet) in height and speaks for itself: It includes the following quotations: "I have devoted myself to the cause of The People. It is a good cause - it shall ultimately prevail - it shall finally triumph." Speech of Thomas Muir in the Court of Judiciary on the 30th August 1793. "I know that what has been done these two days will be Re-Judged." Speech of William Skirving in the Court of Judiciary on the 7th January, 1794.

585 NORDIC HOUSE with Lesley Riddoch Lesley Riddoch & Icelandic consul Kristin Hannesdottir

The Scottish Storytelling Centre will become a Nordic House during this year’s Edinburgh Festival with a multi-media exhibition of landscape art from all five of the Nordic nations. One of the most heavily visited parts of Edinburgh will become a visible symbol of Nordic/Scottish cooperation with all national flags flying together over the Royal Mile. The Scottish collaborating partners are the Scottish Storytelling Centre, architect, Lateral North Director and Nordic House curator Graham Hogg and Lesley Riddoch, broadcaster and Director of Nordic Horizons a policy group which brings Nordic specialists to speak in the Scottish Parliament. A Nordic Culture Fund grant allows the showcase of reproduced paintings, photography, apposite music and a makeshift Nordic hut to depict a small number of the landscapes to be found across Scandinavia including: Women at Sea – women and families involved in fishing & farming on the Finnish Åland islands before WW2. Kaare Espolin Johnson – Norwegian painter and graphic artist who produced striking images of people & seascapes, despite being almost blind. Johannes Sveinsson Kjarval – an orphan and fisherman who became Iceland’s most prolific painter using a variety of styles to depict landscape and lava formation. Vennelyst – photos comparing the 1900s with today in Copenhagen’s oldest allotment garden where families traditionally moved to live for the summer. Sweden – photographs of Kiruna town, currently being moved to make way for iron mining operations. The collaboration aims to question the myth of an empty frozen North & explore contrasts and continuities with Scottish art & landscape. The Nordic House opens on Wednesday 29 July and closes on September 5 September with an afternoon of films about the two painters and talks from Espolin Johnson’s son Gisle and the Icelandic Consul Kristin Hannesdottir. There will also be a children’s trail with Nordic soft toys and a find-the-animal quiz. The Storytelling Centre is located on Edinburgh’s second busiest pedestrian thoroughfare and has six shows daily during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and an estimated 11,000 visitors daily in peak summer months. The building is part of the John Knox House (Edinburgh’s oldest) and contains a bookshop, exhibition and Café.

discusses 100 Acts of Minor Dissent

348 Q&A session with MARK THOMAS at Word Power Books discusses 100 Acts of Minor Dissent

Event will be live only. Comedian Mark Thomas has been campaigning for over nearly three decades. He has remained uniquely relevant and agitated where others have mellowed and capitulated. One Hundred Acts of Minor Dissent is the brilliantly funny account of a year spent living provocatively. From successful campaigns against multinationals to protests against local park planners, from arts and crafts with porn mags to raising cinema workers wages, this is a wonderfully funny adventure. Rich with photos and graphics One Hundred Acts is also dangerously inspirational… MARK THOMAS describes himself variously as a confused liberal, activist anarchist, asthmatic rambler and fat Dad. He has previously published four books, including The People's Manifesto and As Used on the Famous Nelson Mandela. As well as winning many awards for his comedy performances, he has made six series of The Mark Thomas Comedy Product, multiple documentaries for Dispatches on Channel 4 and has performed at The National Theatre. In performing One Hundred Acts of Minor Dissent he campaigned successfully for trade union recognition for cinema workers, got a multinational to change their practices, brought 4 court cases and annoyed lots of people. He lives in South London with his family.

An Edinburgh Fringe event: Inspirational Talk with Questions and Answers with Lindsay Jarrett - the Independence Climber who, during the Independence Referendum Campaign famously climbed up the Edinburgh Castle Rock in the middle of the night and placed a huge Yes sign high up on the rock face for the world to see - an unbelievable feat in itself but all the more remarkable when you think that Lindsay managed this despite her battle with Alpha-1, a rare condition which means she is only able to use 20% of her lung capacity and with her life saving oxygen tank strapped to her back. Remarkable, inspirational and humbling. Please come along on the evening to hear Lindsay's inspirational story not only about this amazing feat but about what drives her in life with her wonderful family and now in politics - and how she will continue to fight all the way to make Scotland a better, fairer and more caring country. Lindsay will also hold a Questions & Answers session so please do not miss this great opportunity to meet and to get to know Lindsay, to show our continued support and express our thanks to one of our true Scottish Independence heroes.

He was born at 107 Cowgate in Edinburgh to Irish immigrant parents. He left school for working life at the age of 11, but became one of the leading Marxist theorists of his day. He also took a role in Scottish and American politics. He was executed by a British firing squad because of his leadership role in the Easter Rising of 1916

The Harmonium Project is a free outdoor event marking the opening of the 2015 Edinburgh International Festival and the 50th anniversary of the Edinburgh Festival Chorus. Created by 59 Productions, the event combines John Adams’s mesmerising choral work Harmonium with a series of spectacular animations, projected onto the outside of the Usher Hall. Working with the University of Edinburgh’s Centre for Design Informatics, the project examines the effects singing has on both the performer and the listener. 59 Productions combines technology and art to tell amazing stories. In recent years it has created the video design for the opening of the London 2012 Olympic Games, the Digital Revolution exhibition at the Barbican, London, and the Lighting of the Sydney Opera House sails for the Vivid Live festival. A recording of Harmonium forms the soundtrack to this spectacular event, performed by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and the Edinburgh Festival Chorus conducted by Peter Oundjian.

363 Max Blumenthal: The 51 Day War book launch with Glasgow SPSC Max Blumenthal: The 51 Day War book launch with Glasgow SPSC. Max will be showing a 5 min film then talking for 45 mins.

Beginning July 8, 2014, Israel launched air strikes and a ground invasion of Gaza that lasted fifty-one days, leaving over 2,000 people dead, the vast majority of whom were civilians. During the assault, at least 10,000 homes were destroyed and, according to the United Nations, nearly 300,000 Palestinians were displaced. Max Blumenthal was on the ground during what he argues was an entirely avoidable catastrophe. In this explosive work of reportage, Blumenthal reveals the harrowing conditions and cynical deceptions that led to the ruinous war. Here, for the first time, Blumenthal unearths and presents shocking evidence of atrocities he gathered in the rubble of Gaza. Blumenthal’s on-the-ground reportage uncovers and analyses details overlooked by mainstream media outlets—including regional political motives, war crimes, and US involvement in the eventual ceasefire agreement—an outcome showing that US & Egyptian-led diplomacy makes another war almost inevitable. ‘The 51 Day War’ presents unflinching accounts of: the use of civilians as human shields by Israeli forces; the arbitrary targeting of Palestinian civilians; and widespread incitement to genocide by Israeli military personnel, political leaders, and state-sponsored clerics. Eyewitness accounts from Gazan residents document potential war crimes committed by the Israeli armed forces. Blumenthal also details the battles that took place between Israeli forces and the armed guerrilla factions of the Gaza Strip, explaining their military and political significance with intimate proximity to the subject. Max Blumenthal is an award-winning journalist and best-selling author whose articles and video documentaries have appeared in New York Times, Daily Beast, Guardian, Huffington Post, Salon, Al Jazeera English and many other publications. He is the author of Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel and Republican Gomorrah: Inside The Movement That Shattered the Party.

A State that imprisons journalists, musicians, citizens and members from social movements. And now, a state that is forbidding a referendum in Catalunya, and only uses violence and repression as a response. Today, we need to show our solidarity for all the imprisoned and demand our rights to decide in this so-called 'democratic' system. PS.

Free All Catalan Political Prisoners Organised by the ANC Scotland

Prison is the Spanish judiciary’s response to the ousted Catalan government’s independence roadmap, despite repeated calls for dialogue and mediation in the past few weeks by Puigdemont’s cabinet. Spain’s National Court provisionally jailed eight dismissed Catalan ministers without bail on Thursday. Beginning with vice president, Oriol Junqueras, all the deposed officials who appeared in the Madrid court will spend the night behind bars. The officials are charged with rebellion, sedition and misuse of public funds. The only exception was former business minister, Santi Vila, who stepped down from his post after disagreeing with the declaration of independence. In a different ruling, Vila was ordered to be held pending a €50,000 bail payment. Apart from Junqueras, the officials held in custody without bail are the ministers of Home Affairs (Joaquim Forn), Foreign Affairs (Raül Romeva), Governance (Meritxell Borràs), Presidency (Jordi Turull), Social Affairs (Dolors Bassa), Justice (Carles Mundó) and Territory (Josep Rull). In all, the eight jailed officials were sent to five different prisons in the Madrid region. On the orders of the judge, Junqueras and Forn were sent to the Estremera prison, Turull and Romeva to the prison of Valdemoro, Rull to the Navalcarnero penitentiary, Mundó and Vila to Aranjuez, while the female ministers, Bassa and Borràs have gone to Alcalá prison. However they are not the only ones to have ended up in prison over the past few weeks because of the independence roadmap. The judge who ordered the jailing of the officials is the the same who on October 16 ordered the heads of Catalonia’s two main civil pro-independence organizations, Jordi Sànchez and Jordi Cuixart, to be remanded in custody. It is also the same National Court judge considering a prosecutor’s request to issue an international arrest warrant for Catalan president Carles Puigdemont and his four ministers who fled to Brussels. Justifying her decision to jail the former Catalan government members, the judge argued that their decision to declare independence amounts to causing an uprising in Spain’s sovereign territory. She also said the mobilization of the public by the independence movement was intimidation of Spain’s security forces, who were in Catalonia to ensure the law was carried out.

Hope Over Fear are organizing this 2015 event to coincide with the anniversary of the referendum and to make a clear statement that our journey to full Independence for our nation continues. Our First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon has stated clearly that it will be the people of Scotland who will determine if and when there is an #indyref2. Lets fill Freedom Square and the surrounding streets of Glasgow on September 19th to make our voices heard. 2018 is an ideal year for #indyref2 as it is clear in terms of elections north and south of the border. (2016 Scottish parliament, 2017 Scottish council, 2019 English council and 2020 General election.) Join us on the Square with the message, #Indyref2 2018.

HOPE OVER FEAR: SEIZE THE DAY RALLY George Square, Glasgow. Lots of great speakers including Mark McGowan, The Artist Taxi Driver plus great music...

The Hope Over Fear campaign will not shirk its responsibilities. On May 7th 2015 we have a unique opportunity in Scotland to wipe out the blue, yellow and red Tories in one fell swoop. We can electorally punish those who lined up with the billionaires and millionaires to lie, deceive and bully our nation into submission. We are not too small, too poor or too scared to move forward into a new and better world and by uniting the pro-Scotland and anti-Establishment vote in May 2015 we can realise our dreams. Bring the family and enjoy another great day out while listening to the speakers from all political backgrounds and on the importance of using your vote wisely at the general election. There will also be many amazingly talented artists and musicians for you to enjoy on the day. In the words of Gerry Cinnamon's inspiring anthem of our movement, "Hope Over Fear, Carpe Diem". Let’s seize the day in 2015. NOTE: Mark McGowan, The Artist Taxi Driver will be one of the speakers :) FACEBOOK EVENT: https://www.facebook.com/events/401561463337441/

BBC Bias Peaceful Protest #2 Around 1:30 - 3:30pm BBC Bias Peaceful Protest #2 - The People's Voice!

BBC Bias Peaceful Protest #2 - The People's Voice! Sunday, June 29 at 1:30pm - 3:30pm BBC Scotland Studios, Pacific Quay G51 1 Glasgow, United Kingdom This is a protest against bias from the self-proclaimed “impartial” BBC. The most important issue we need to highlight is the repeated omission of relevant facts, information & answers that has kept Scotland in the dark about the real independence debate. The BBC’s coverage is ruining the run up to the biggest decision in our history. People are suitably sickened by the BBC & other mainstream media and their one sided conveyor belt of scare stories portrayed against our economic prospects, EU membership and the currency of an independent Scotland. Sometimes the bias is not in what they do cover but what they don't cover in their news & current affairs programmes. Specific examples of bias that concerns us are as follows: Make up of Question Time panels. Irish & Luxembourg EU ministers views misrepresented. UKIP promotion during EU elections. University of the West of Scotland report on bias on evening news programmes (BBC & STV) University of the West of Scotland report on bias on Radio Scotland Good Morning Scotland show The BBC's membership of the CBI which opposes independence and even tried to become an official member of the no campaign until a U turn after a mass cancellation of membership by Scottish companies. Different styles of questioning for Yes/No including more frequent interruptions from interviewers. The list goes on… Let's keep up the pressure on the old BBC and arrange their next outing as a massive anti-bias operation! Bring your saltires, banners, balloons, friends, family and loud voices. Make it a day to remember! Everyone is welcome from both sides of the debate. Groups that wish to protest about other instances of BBC bias unrelated to the independence debate are also more than welcome to attend.
