Karen Chung and Douglas Peacock, along with the ‘North Kelvinside Green Space Initiative’ (sic) have been summoned to appear at the Sheriff Court in Glasgow on 21/08/09 at 12 noon to defend an action that has been brought against them by Glasgow City Council. The Council wants to prevent the community group caring for the disused land, growing vegetables in raised beds and keeping the disused brick outbuilding in good repair.
We would therefore like to ask you to support Karen, Douglas and the North Kelvin Meadow in any or all of the following ways:
1. Please attend court if you can. Our aim is to fill the public gallery to overflowing. The case reference is A2833/09 and the address for the Sheriff Court is: 1 Carlton Place, Glasgow G2 1DU
2. Please again write to Steve Inch (DRS), your counsellors, your MSPs and your MP Ann McKechin to protest this utterly ridiculous and disproportionate reponse from GCC, which apart from anything else is a complete waste of Council taxpayers money.
3. Please tell anyone who may be interested about what is happening at the Meadow and GCC’s disproportionate action.
