Posted in March logistics on March 10, 2011
A number of people approached us some weeks ago about organising feeder marches on March 26th.
We thought long and hard about this, but decided against, other than the TUC stewarded short assembly point in St James St for those unable to march the whole route.
There are a number of reasons for this, but there are two in particular.
- We do not want to merge marches. This will inevitably involve delaying the main march, and we do not think it is right to ask people who have patiently waited at our assembly area to wait again while other people enter in front of them. Stopping and starting marches is always to be avoided if possible.
- We do not want any additional road closures that will interfere with our arrangements for disabled marchers. This is already a challenge, and we do not want to make it any more difficult.
So whatever anyone says, there are no official feeder marches nor any organised in any way in co-operation with the TUC.
