Against Spanish State Repression - Stand with Catalunya, organised by Edinburgh in Protest. We will be again protesting in front of the consulate against the authoritarian Spanish state and in Solidarity with Catalunya. We are protesting against a state that is criminalizing the right to protest and to free speech through mechanisms like the Gag Law. 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. Bring your pans to make some noise! https://www.facebook.com/events/152897381983237/

Catalans in Edinburgh call citizens to demonstrate support for democracy in Catalonia

61Stop State repression in Catalonia #HandsOffCatalonia Catalans in Edinburgh call citizens to demonstrate support for democracy in Catalonia

Enough is enough! No more State repression in Catalonia! Two leaders of Catalan organisations are now in prison in Madrid, without bail, to await trial on charges of sedition: - Jordi Sànchez, president of the Catalan National Assembly, the biggest pro-independence civic organisation, founded in 2012. - Jordi Cuixart, president of d'Òmnium Cultural, an organisation founded in 1961 to promote Catalan language and culture. (Òmnium Cultural was banned for some years under Franco -- Catalan was banned from use in schools and public administration from 1939 to 1975, while publishing in Catalan was heavily restricted.) The charges of sedition are based on them encouraging demonstrations against Spanish state institutions. The head of the Catalan police, Josep Lluís Trapero, is facing similar charges, but is not yet in prison; instead his passport has been confiscated and he is forbidden from leaving Spanish territory. Charges against Trapero allege that the Catalan police should have taken more forceful action against demonstrators and against voters in the referendum.

146Edinburgh demo voting is democracy - stop state repression in Catalonia

The Spanish government reacted to Sunday's disputed referendum in Catalonia by sending riot police to attack voters and seize ballot boxes. So far, other European governments and the EU have been silent, accepting this as a valid way for Spain to deal with what they describe as an internal issue. Join us to show that as citizens we do not accept state violence as a way to resolve peaceful political disputes.

#HKS17 Houses are not just walls with price tags. Houses are homes, which are the centre of communities, and it is communities which form places. The Housekeeping Scotland Convention is the start of a long term Common Weal project aiming to build a genuinely transformative agenda for housing in Scotland that re-establishes homes as the beating heart of communities and places, not as financial assets for speculative gains. This project therefore seeks to address the two facets of the housing crisis, equally pervasive: an economic one, with sky-high rents and ever-rising inequality between those with property and those without, and an alienation one, with new housing built without community in mind and the forces of gentrification and under-investment displacing and undermining communities within our built environment. This twin crisis fused together in the tragedy of Grenfell tower, which if it does not act as a spur to fundamentally change our approach to homes, communities and places nothing will. The aim is to have good housing with the infrastructure and public amenities that make good communities – then we can give people great homes and great communities in which to make a home.
