7-10 000 marched through Edinburgh to the Scottish Parliament on the evening of Thursday 6th March to hear speakers condemn the war including Tommy Sheridan, George Galloway and a mobile phone link up with Palestinian activists in Ramallah. Pictures at the link above.

Also today the herald gives the SSP a record poll result of 10% on the regional list vote. This rises to 22% in Glasgow. The main factor they identify is the question of war. What is clear is that the SSP's principled opposition to war with or without UN approval is gaining a tremendous echo. Check out the SSP reaction here.
