Royal is about to take off for a week for some training, so we thought it might be nice to go somewhere for a quick weekend. Glasgow was picked since I wanted to spend some time in Scotland.
And what is pretty much the first thing we see upon entering?
Everyone was there, Greenpeace, Faslane 365, Stop the War Coalition, Scotland Against Criminalising Communities, Iraqi Solidarity, etc. (refuse to link their sites here, but can google if you want a laugh. Or cry.)
They were very much taking up the whole two lanes of traffic, so we waited. And waited. Cars were turning around, cars were honking. Finally one of the policeman waved to us that it would be about 5 more minutes, to which Royal called out to clarify and the man came over to our car. He reapeated that it would be 5 minutes, to which Royal said "could I not just run them over?" and the cop chuckled! It was awesome.
After marching for half an hour in our way, they gathered around a big square in Downtown.
Faslane 365 is a 365 day protest of HM Naval Base Clyde at Faslane & Coulport - where they house the nuclear subs.
Luckily enough, no one approached us and I was able to take the photos with no problems. Plus, it was fun laughing at the stoned & ratty looking people (a lot dressed in their camo pants and jackets, which is strange considering their hatred for the military) and their insane views.
