Remembering Pollok Free State in the Era of Climate Breakdown

This is from the Enough collectives recent  Deep Adaptation/Deep Solidarity event in Glasgow with a talk by Gehan Macleod.

This talk personifies the issues we’ve been looking at for twelve years about the ideas of self-determination – social resistance and collective community action.

Too often we suffer from institutional memory loss in Scotland.

    Thank you Gehan, so much to put out there in so little time. Quite inspiring.

    It’s funny, I always feel a little bit guilty and sad using the M77 bypass spur as I head south from Glasgow to Ayrshire.

    The motorway extension makes the journey so much faster and easier than it was before. But I always think of the protestors, their commitment and how I am now driving through what was once their green space, their place of retreat and renewal. A part of me feels resentful because I don’t like feeling like a bad guy who benefitted from their loss.

    It can feel easier to close your heart to the price paid by other humans for your own convenience & privilege, but it would be a mistake, I think.
