More on Edinburgh

I recommend this report on the Edinburgh demonstration from the Socialist Unity Network. It has a number of minor criticisms about how the radical left approached the demonstration - as well as some criticism of the MPH campaign more broadly. One thing this report brings out, which I didn't really refer to in mine (below), is the large presence of Christian groups on the march and the stand-offish separation between them and the more radical bloc. As the report says, the Left is really bad at making their ideas seem relevant to this more cautious and politically moderate/naive(?) wing of the MPH movement.

Oh, and if you scroll down the report, the second photograph shows the front of the STWC march (the banner I talk about below) and the man in the brown leather jacket at the left of the picture is my thesis supervisor.
