The day of action in East Kilbride was part of a nationwide effort coordinated by independent campaign group 38 Degrees.

The South Lanarkshire Greens are gearing up for next year's Holyrood election! We aim to get at least one (preferably two) of our regional candidates elected. To achieve this we are organising our Central Scotland Regional Campaign: planning stalls, public meetings, media events, fundraising activities and electoral canvassing. But winning will be a challenge, and so we need all the help we can get.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to get involved.
