Up to 500 people protested outside Glasgow City Chambers on Wednesday of this week against a proposed 40 percent funding cut to Glasgow Association of Mental Health.

GAMH is a mental health crisis prevention charity. Service users, staff and supporters joined the lobby outside the council headquarters as a council committee was set to meet and decide the cut.

But the decision has still not yet been made as councillors came under pressure from the size and breadth of the demo. The campaign continues.
