I AM writing to inform your readers of a new service for people bereaved by suicide in Angus.People bereaved by suicide come from all walks of life. Suicide is a tragedy that has no boundaries and coping with the aftermath can affect people right across our communities. The sad and difficult loss of a loved
I have just read that the Wakus, a family of asylum seekers from Congo who have lived in Scotland for years and who, at the instigation of the Home Office, were forcibly removed from their house in Glasgow and put in a detention centre have now been released but minus the head of the family.
Richard Benjamin’s article (Scotland’s Sectarian Divide TFN 23 March) makes the very valid point that the only way to diminish sectarianism in Scottish society is to challenge it.As with sexism, racism or any form of prejudice, the key to making such challenges have impact is by recognising how close to home prejudice and discrimination often
I just read the article about Malawi in TFN and wanted to thank you for highlighting the good work of our Mary’s Meals project – especially welcome after Frontline Scotland’s recent irresponsible program that questioned the sustainability of this work.

The reason that Scotland is focusing its attention on Malawi (although projects in Sub-Saharan Africa and areas affected by the Asian tsunami are also supported) is not
WHILE agreeing with Grace Givens’ letter regarding sectarianism I feel she perhaps deserves an answer as to why there has been such a drive to keep this bandwagon rolling. The simplest explanation is the ‘sectarianism industry’ has created itself. It is sadly a truism that when people are given a salary and/or research money to
The Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign made Jim Allen’s ‘Perdition’ available to Scottish audiences last week; your leader-writer clearly did not attend.
