What is Action on Sectarianism?

YouthLink Scotland, the National Agency for Youth Work has set up the first independent public website designed to challenge sectarianism in Scotland, supported by the Scottish Government.

Accessible on computers, tablets and mobile phones, this website will act as a central gateway to information and resources tackle sectarianism in Scotland by providing tailored user access to four distinct target groups:

Children and Young people

Adults: parents, carers, community groups

AoS Network: teachers, youth workers, academics, policy officers, community activists

A new survey by Censuswide on Orange Walks in Glasgow found that two-thirds (67%) of Glaswegians would support a ban.

1,100 people took part in the survey, with 351 people taking part from Glasgow.

Matt Poole, general manager, said: "While useful for understanding the wider context on an issue, opinions are not always rooted in hard facts and figures, which is why we decided to carry out this particular piece of research."

In Glasgow, more than half calling for a ban (51%) said it was due to finding the marches intimidating and 52% said it was for disruption of travel.

A spokesperson for the Grand Orange Lodge of Scotland said: "We note that the pollsters only spoke with 351 people in Glasgow. To try and suggest that this figure is representative of opinion in Glasgow simply isn't credible."
