Occupy Glasgow relocates to Kelvingrove nr Art Gallery.

"Anti-capitalist protesters have voted to leave their camp in a city square on the eve of the local council's court bid to oust them from the site.

The Occupy Glasgow group, which stands in solidarity with a global "anti-greed" movement, moved into George Square in the city centre on October 15.

The protesters were given 48 hours to seek legal advice at a previous hearing at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Tuesday, and are due back in court on Thursday.

However at a meeting the activists voted to move to a site which the council has offered them in Kelvingrove Park near to the art gallery."

We should all rejoice in this news. It's time certain parties stopped thinking of the Park as their personal dog toilet.

I'm pretty sure any impact the protest might have had will be considerably diminished by moving it to a place that's practically deserted at this time of year.

The only effect it'll have is to render Apoplectic Of Yorkhill incandescent, which may provide some schadenfreude for some.

Glasgow Green might have been a site with more history of protest.   Perhaps not as pretty or a bit inconvenient.

Out of site, out of mind.

Widows and soldiers' wives were among those who resisted landowners' moves to clear land of people so new farms could be created to boost productivity.

In some cases women were beaten by police and pursued by marines.
