Orange Walks are damaging to the city of Glasgow for a number of reasons.
They are a practice representative of sectarian attitudes, and do not reflect the beliefs of the majority of city residents.
They promote an atmosphere of alienation and intimidation.
They make travel around the city centre unnecessarily difficult.
They waste the time of emergency services, preventing them from reaching the people who may have a real need for them and wasting taxpayers' money.
They are detrimental to tourism and promote a poor image of the city.
They are a considerable noise disturbance to local residents.
Glasgow City Council should not be allowing this walks to continue, when they are only warranted by the bullying and pressure from a very vocal minority of our population.
