Away to Edinburgh today with Cromarty Rising and Friends - follow the trip and protest on twitter #NoS2SHolyrood

Readers may wish to look at the following twitter page from time to time today, a few of the folk going down to the Scottish Parliament will hopefully be posting updates on twitter. 

Last night S2S oil transfers in the Moray Firth was discussed at a very well attended meeting of Nairn River Community Council with updates from Iain Bruce who is one of the co-coordinators of the Alliance of Community Councils who are campaigning with Cromarty Rising and many others who are participating in the various initiatives to stop the proposed oil transfers. 

Highland Councilor Michael Green outlined his and his colleagues desire that every thing possible is done from the Council side of things before the present set up breaks up for the May elections.

A desire for unequivocal support from the Scottish Government for Moray Firth communities was also expressed. More about what was said later this weekend if time permits.

Also present were Cllrs Stephen Fuller and Provost Laurie Fraser, Liz MacDonald had sent her apologies.
