cuts cuts cuts……grrrrrrrrrr

The National Center for Excellence in Traditional Music in Plockton Scotland is threatened with closure due to spending cuts.
This would be a disaster for young traditional music in Scotland - there are so few opportunities in schools - yes there are the odd dedicated individuals here and there but to loose this place - unthinkable. Please consider signing this petition,

Thank you.
Bob.

Signed it already. It’s making the Facebook rounds. :)

Arts take the brunt of the cuts, as ever. :( It’s nice to know how valued they are.

Paraphrasing Mr. Holland’s quote, from "Mr. Holland’s Opus", discussing the cutting of his music program… "they’d never cut the football team. That would be the end of civilization as we know it."

Re: cuts cuts cuts……grrrrrrrrrr

How much say do the Scottish authorities have in where the cuts go?

Re: cuts cuts cuts……grrrrrrrrrr

It’s the Highland Council who is making this decision. I suppose the ideal protest would involve occupying their offices in Inverness and having a session, but Glasgow is more convenient.

Re: cuts cuts cuts……grrrrrrrrrr

@AlBrown Well, these cuts are often associated with strikes too. And maybe things would even progress to rolling…..

Re: cuts cuts cuts……grrrrrrrrrr

Well.
It’s kind of up to us.
We elect governments to do this stuff for us, but they’ve dropped the ball.
SO it’s back to donations of time, cash and venues -
re-creating our community from scratch again.
After a while, the government is governing nothing because we will have created a new de-facto one.
This is what we have always done - each person contributes to the community, and receives 1/community return - if the whole community contributes, then the the return is community/community (=1) plus the increase generated by the activity of teh community (=1+).
As it stands, government beurocracies and commercial "service" providers get all the increase .. and now, it seems, much much more.
When the goose runs out of golden egs, she moves elsewhere.
