Anti-racism march in Glasgow welcome refugees

The Scottish Trades Union Congress march and rally, which organisers said was attended by about 1,500 people, had the theme No Racism: Refugees Welcome.

Refugees who have made Scotland their home spoke at the event.

STUC general secretary Grahame Smith said more needed to be done to support refugees at home and abroad and racist attitudes must be challenged.

Speaking before the march, he said: "With a humanitarian tragedy unfolding, it seems appropriate to use the annual anti-racist St Andrew’s Day march and rally to send a clear message that Scotland welcomes refugees and that we are ready to provide space in our country for all those who need it.
