Last saturday Scotland for Animals held one of our regular
information stalls this time at the Merchant City Festival in Glasgow.
Despite organising officials and security first trying for some time to evict us
from a public street and then attempting to get two passing police officers to
arrest us for refusing to move the day was a resounding success with Glaswegians
and visitors from all over the globe coming over to show their support for
animals and have their photos taken with Bella.
Later in the day as we were leaving a member of the public approached us saying

P.s: This saturday's (31st) stall will be at the Shawlands Arcade from 1pm. Take
a run along.
