This is Rigged (Scotland)

Website: https://www.thisisrigged.org/

This is Rigged is a direct action campaign targeting the Scottish government’s lack of action on both the climate and cost-of-living crisis. The multitude of crises we face today are extremely interlinked and cannot be tackled in isolation. We are demanding that supermarkets slash the price of baby products, the Scottish government fully fund a community hub per 500 households and the Scottish government create a fully funded just transition for oil workers into renewables.

​The system is rigged against the people. But time and time again, in Scotland and around the world, ordinary people have stood up against corruption and injustice. From Mary Barbour and the rent strikes to the crofters, to the shipyards at the poll tax-Scotland has a long, proud history of resistance.

​Right now, oil companies are pushing Scots into poverty while they pollute our land, supermarkets are inflating prices so people can’t afford to eat and the climate crisis is decimating people’s lives and livelihoods, while the politicians stick their fingers in their ears and refuse to act. It’s up to us to sort this mess out. At times like these, the Highland Land League slogan rings true “Treasa tuath an tighearna”/ “The people are mightier than a lord”
