  • Save Our Historic Setts!
    09/03/18 - We Won!! We are delighted to say that at the Council's Transport and Environment committee meeting on 9 March, the Council’s Strategy for Setted Streets and the full restoration of the Brighton Place setts were approved. It has been a long fight to have the 2016 decision to remove the setts from Brighton Place reversed. It is fantastic that the right decision was made to preserve this integral feature of the conservation area, which enhances the setting of the fine Georgian architecture. The approval of the Strategy for Setted Street strengthens the protection of all setted streets across the city. Thank you for all your support. We could not have done this without you. Best wishes Douglas Read

  • Strip Donald Trump of his honorary degree
    UPDATE: We've won the campaign! Robert Gordon University have just announced that they are revoking Donald Trump's honorary degree. They say: "In 2010 Robert Gordon University awarded an honorary DBA to Mr Donald Trump, in recognition of his achievements as an entrepreneur and businessman. In the course of the current US election campaign, Mr Trump has made a number of statements that are wholly incompatible with the ethos and values of the university. The University has therefore decided to revoke its award of the honorary degree" Click here to email the university to say thank you: https://speakout.38degrees.org.uk/campaigns/donald-trump
