Govanhill Pool

THE OCCUPATION of Govanhill Pool in Glasgow is gathering momentum. Activists have occupied the pool for two weeks against its threatened closure. Last Saturday, the day the council was to officially close the pool, some 500 people showed their defiance and came to a rally at the pool. But the council is determined to go ahead with the closure.

Local resident and campaigner Sam Davis said, " The speed with which the decision was made got me so angry I just had to get involved. "This shows just what the council think of the people of Govanhill. There's been no consultation at all. We're supposed to be living in a democracy!"
