Beginning of the march

On Saturday 30th March about 2000 people marched through Edinburgh in opposition to the Bedroom Tax.

As always the James Connolly Society were there. Ensuring the socialist republican politics of James Connolly are central to political life in Scotland and that Connolly is commemorated everyday through the JCS’ involvement in working class politics.
