  • RAWA Solidarity Scotland's picture
    RAWA Solidarity Scotland is a grassroots group based in Edinburgh that actively supports the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA).

    RAWA is the oldest political/social organisation of Afghan women struggling for peace, freedom, democracy and women’s rights in fundamentalism-blighted Afghanistan since 1977.

    We organise events to raise awareness of the plight of Afghan women, generate much needed financial support, and take part in other social and political activities aimed at creating positive change.

    We also support and promote their call for an end to the current occupation of Afghanistan by U.S and NATO forces.

Human Rights/Anti-War

  • Edinburgh ABC's picture
    The Anarchist Black Cross was originated in Tsarist Russia to organise aid for political prisoners. In the late 1960s the organisation resurfaced in Britain, where it first worked to aid prisoners of the Spanish resistance fighting the dictator Franco’s police. Now it has expanded and groups are found in many countries around the world. We support anarchist and other class struggle prisoners by holding letter writing events and spreading information about different cases.

    Edinburgh ABC started in 2011 with regular letter writing at The Forest Cafe. It had a lull in activity after The Forest Cafe closed but was rejuvenated in late 2011 for a fresh start in 2012.

    You can contact us on edinburghabc [at] noflag.org.uk

    Or pop into one of our regular letter writing events.

  • Edinburgh Chiapas Solidarity Group's picture
    The Edinburgh Chiapas Solidarity Group is one group of many that form the 'UK Zapatista Solidarity Network' and one of many across the world which support the Zapatistas of Chiapas, South-East Mexico, in their struggle for a just and dignified life.

    We do this by organising talks, film showings, benefit gigs, street stalls and direct actions as well as publishing articles. We import Zapatista produce such as coffee, clothing and jewellery for sale with the money going directly back to the 'Communities in Resistance'.

  • Faslane Peace Camp's picture
    Faslane Peace Camp is a permanent peace camp sited alongside Faslane Naval base in Argyll and Bute, Scotland.

    We are protesting against Trident, the British Nuclear weapons system which consists of 4 nuclear powered submarines, each armed to the teeth with enough explosive plutonium to end the world (all true).

    This is the sole reason for our existence and as such, those living here have put our personal lives, for the most part, on hold to live here and campaign.

  • Scottish ALP's picture
    The Scottish Activist Legal Project formed in October 2009. It draws on the experience people have of providing legal support for direct action at Faslane, the G8 2005 and lots more.

    If you would like to be involved in ScALP in any way, or would like our help, please get in contact.

  • Unity Centre's picture
    The Unity Centre at 30 Ibrox Street, Glasgow opened on Saturday 11th March 2006. Very quickly the Centre has grown to play an important and perhaps unique role providing support for asylum seekers in Glasgow.

    Run completely by a collective of volunteers and funded entirely by donations from our supporters the Centre provides practical solidarity and support for asylum seekers especially when they face being locked up in detention centres or being forcibly removed.
