26 March: Together we can achieve anything
Thousands of Scotland UNISON members descended on London
today from across the country to join hundreds of thousands
in the biggest trade union demonstration in a generation.
Many travelled overnight with trains and buses arriving
in London early to join the march. Banners from across Scotland
were part of a ribbon of green and purple that snaked past
the iconic sights of London to make one simple point - there
is an alternative to cuts and to the smashing of our welfare
See an 'on march' report from the unofficial UNISONActive
UK live updates here.
Get to London on the train
