In the footsteps of the popular assemblies in the cities of Greece and their decisions, we created the group Real Democracy now – Edinburgh/GR in Edinburgh, in the middle of December 2011.

With this act we aim to contribute to the struggles for real democracy, equality, justice and dignity in Greece, Scotland, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Europe and the World.

We are workers, students, unemployed, young people and we are fighting for our lives and future.
