Real dedication

On 6 November, a small but dedicated group of peace campaigners braved the rain in Glasgow’s Victoria Park for a rededication of the Peace Tree. This cherry tree was presented to Glasgow by Christian CND 21 years ago, to mark their 1989 annual conference.

Speakers Pauline McNeill MSP and Martin Bartos of the Green Party reaffirmed their own personal commitments to the anti-nuclear cause and reminded the gathering of their membership of the burgeoning worldwide movement for a nuclear weapons convention and for a world united in peace and cooperation.

Organiser Marion McMillan laid a bouquet of chrysanthemums (the national flower of Japan) at the foot of the tree.

Particular thanks were given to John Hannah of Scotstoun Conservation Area Resident’s Association, who arranged the renewal of the commemorative plaque.
