Buy a limited print commissioned to mark 10 years since the Make Poverty History march in Edinburgh

MakePovertyHistoryTen years ago today world leaders came to Edinburgh for the G8 summit, and with them around hundreds of thousands of demonstrators who marched through the city in the hope of forcing those leaders to cancel world debt.

On July 2nd 2005, 200,000 people caused Edinburgh to come to a standstill, as the Make Poverty History march wound its way along Princes Street. To celebrate I have created this ink and watercolour illustration of the crowds on the capitals main thoroughfare, with Edinburgh Castle in the background.


There will only be 250 high quality signed prints made, they will cost £28 each and measure 28 x 28cm. £10 from each print will go to Jubilee Scotland to fund their campaign for debt justice.
