On going work towards building a news group, updates on local groups activities and the encouragement to produce media rather than just absorbing it. We hope to set up a format to produce news, articles and opinions, on what is taking up peoples time and looking at building a community news group.

Alan interview: Community Cook at Kinning park Complex
Problems and needs for ordinary people have not changed much in the last 50 years. Many still lack the basic requirements for subsistence. There is nothing complicated about it. Doing things, feeding folk, is a basic human need and pleasure that has not changed in human history. Talking about the benefits of getting involved.

The Downtrodden Tenant
Bad housing exists not because the housing system is not working but because it is the way it works. Peter Morton has taught me more about technology in the last few months than I knew before. His boundless energy to educate, given the fact he is in a wheelchair and on strong medication through bad health is an inspiration. We are working on a pile of projects around the Radical Imagination and opening the “Open Source” to the people who need it most. This film denotes Peters struggle with Renfrew Council, their lack of duty of care and how the use of his technological skills were used to collect empirical data to back up a case against their failure to uphold their own housing policy.

The Peoples Bandstand
A 25 year struggle to save and renovate a popular city asset back to its former glory. Another city icon that needs to be remembered exists because of the efforts of mainly local people. First to stop it being turned into a pub. Then to force the council to renovate and re-open the bandstand. There is little in the council literature of the struggle for the bandstand as many other struggles to retain community assets. The council now pay us back for that struggle with expensive ticketed gigs at the bandstand they never wanted. 


North Kelvin Meadow The continuing struggle to retain the commons for play
Filmed on the day the council visited the meadows to decide if it is to be concreted over for flats, or remain as the inspiring community resource it is. http://northkelvinmeadow.com/

Self Determination Power Event Common Sense and Freedom 1990
A wee blast from the past. The Self-Determination and Power event was organised by a loose alliance of the Free University of Glasgow, the Edinburgh Review, then under the editorship of James Kelman advocate Peter Kravitz, and Scottish Child magazine, edited by Rosemary Milne. Also involved were Variant, then a glossy magazine containing provocations from Stewart Home, Pete Horobin’s Dundee-based Data Attic and others; West Coast literary magazine, Here and Now magazine, the radical-based Clydeside Press, and the Scotia bar, then a hub for free-thinking dissent down by the river just across from the Gorbals. radicalimagination.co.uk/about/what-happened-in-1990
