June 2nd 2005/6


Its a year to the day since Thomas, Keeley and Sarah went with Emma, Gordon and myself and another couple of hundred thousand to Edinburgh to march to Make Poverty History.

Today as on last July 2nd it was a scorcher. Today we still wore our wrist bands. And today Thomas, Sarah and Keeley (this time with Josh & Craig) were still protesting against poverty and injustice in the world, this time on camera for a documentary looking at social inclusion which will reach schools, youth groups and politicians all over Europe.

We hadn't even realised until we were hours into filming that this was the anniversary of the march...maybe it was the standing around in the heat for hours which reminded us...or the Scottish accent of the filmmaker...whatever it was we couldn't have planned an anniversary activity any better if we had tried...the filmmaker was even from Edinburgh!
