Ciara Spratt started this petition to Glasgow City Council

Currently there are many streets in Glasgow which are named after slave owners, such as Glassford Street (John Glassford), Ingram Street (Archibald Ingram) and Buchanan street (Andrew Buchanan) glorifying the slave owners of the past. Such changes have been made in places like Spain who renamed streets previously named after figures from Franco’s fascist regime. I think it’s important to take these tobacco lords off the pedestal they seemingly stand on and instead recognise other Scottish activists who are deserving of such esteem.
