What Eileen Reid Saw From Her Window

Local resident Eileen Reid is a writer for The Scottish Review. She captured the day of the Kenmure Street protest in a detailed article. She includes an assessment of whether the crowd was a “mob”.

“If critics genuinely had an issue about law enforcement, why not direct questions to Police Scotland, who didn’t enforce it? Or the Home Office? Neither enforced the law because the protest was not ‘mob rule’, but rather a peaceful, community objection to dawn raids. Like that of the ‘Glasgow Girls’, it ended in an inspiring victory.”

From her window, Eileen captured many astonishing images. Her video of the moment Sumit and Lakhvir were released has now been viewed more than seven million times around the world.
