Roll Out on the Royal Mile: Success!

From the Scottish Parliament in Holyrood up to the junction of the Bridges, the Scottish Section of the pink peace scarf gave a colourful lift and powerful message along the Royal mile on Saturday, 28 June.

With the aid of more than 100 volunteers, the scarf drew the attention of shoppers, tourists and local residents alike. Many stopped to take a leaflet and talk about the campaign’s goal of a nuclear-free Scotland. Many joined in on the spot to help hold the scarf and later to sing in Parliament Square.

A huge thank you to the hundreds of knitters and crocheters who contributed to the scarf and all the organisers, stewards and other volunteers who helped make the day a success.

Here are some images from what was a fantastic day. Thanks Jane and Kim for the photos. (click on small photos for a larger image.)
