In response to city-wide anger over Cllr Robert Cairns’ vocal support of controversial plans to combat knife crime in Glasgow’s East End by enforcing a district-wide curfew, we invite all true Better World Pioneers to take up the pen with us and attend at least one #neednothing letter writing party ahead of the City Council vote scheduled for May 29th.
