The SDL are not planning not being in Dundee on the 14th. However we are aware they are recruiting in the local area and are planning on being in Dundee on 5 October. It is important that we as trade unionists continue to stand with and work in our local communities to counter their message of hate. This will be a great event. We hope to see you all there.
