Glasgow school closures protest, 2009
On 3 April 2009 parents occupied Wyndford and St. Gregory's primary schools in the Wyndford area of Maryhill in the city. A rally was held there on 4 April. The parents intended to remain in occupation over the Easter holiday.
A march in support of the campaign took place in Wyndford on 9 April, which was attended by around 400 people. There was a rally at the end at Wyndford Primary School, with several speakers including Bob Doris MSP, and campaign organiser Richie Venton.
The campaign planned to hold a short march and rally in George Square on 17 April at 10 a.m., the day the council executive takes its decision.
