TTIP Day of Action Saturday 22nd August

Other than Lynne P, Judith and I everyone was new to street action with 38 degrees Skipton and I think I’m right in saying only two had been to any of our previous meetings. This really illustrates how 38 Degrees brings people together to support the causes they care about.

Ann a friend of Judith’s from Grassington who did a stirling job.

IMG_6926What I think is pretty amazing is that none of the new people came with a friend. They all turned up independently. You can tell by the pictures that we all thought it had been worth while and had enjoyed meeting each other as well as engaging with the public and even though it is not an easy issue to discuss we felt that we had done our bit in them to find out about an important subject, that many had never heard of.
