Glasgow Kelvingrove Pioneers: Peace Cranes for Valentines!
12 February 2016
The Glasgow Kelvingrove Pioneers recently chose to spend their group night creating origami peace cranes as part of a Scottish CND project. People across Glasgow have come together to create these symbolic pieces of transient art, which on Valentine's day will be hung up in public areas across Glasgow. This is as part of a Scottish wide day of action on February 14th to #Love the Planet, and #Scrap Trident, and to raise awareness and support for the Scrap Trident demo in London, on February 27th.
