         18.8.21 Organising for Cop26 – Mim Black, Cop26 Coalition

         A report of this meeting can be seen at:-

         Matters arising 

  1. Mim asked Edinburgh RIC to get national RIC to organise a Scottish independence contingent at the Cop26 demo. We could approach others to organise a joint Left Independence contingent, e.g. RIC, SNP Socialists, Now Scotland, conter, SSP etc. (Nick thought that the Scottish Greens would organise its own contingent)
  • Mim also said there would be a Peoples Summit coinciding with the official Cop26 gathering.  She invited RIC to provide a speaker. 

         It was agreed that the Edinburgh RIC delegates would raise this.

  • Future Edinburgh RIC Assembly (Zoom meeting), 30.9.21. 71000
