The Protestants of Rutherglen are being directly attacked here. Graffiti had previously been discovered in the same building in May of last year. Scottish Protestants against discrimination have spoken out after two religiously motivated attacks on orange rooms. Rutherglen was a center of heavy industry, with a long tradition of coal mining that died out in 1950.
The parade, accompanied by the only remaining flute band in town, Rutherglen Bluebell, will begin around 4.15 p.m., from Cathcart Place. A branch of Boots Chemist occupied a corner both in the oldest buildings in Rutherglen Cross and when they were replaced, and was present in the same place in the city for more than a century. In addition to some commercial areas and the large industrial estates of Farme Cross and Shawfield, the neighborhoods referred to are residential; the 1922 Rutherglen Lore book indicates the deliberate intention that the historic Burgh area be surrounded on the south by residential suburbs, while all land in the north is dedicated to industry, and that is still the case a century later. In 1999, the Scottish parliamentary constituency of Glasgow Rutherglen was created, with the same limits as the then parliamentary constituency of the United Kingdom.
Most of Rutherglen's bars are located on the north side of the main street and west, as a legacy of the Temperance Act (Scotland) of 1913, when the south side of the street and other parts were declared “dry areas” after local referendums on the subject. Having existed as a Lanarkshire hamlet in its own right for more than 800 years, Rutherglen lost its own local council in 1975 and became an administrative part of the Glasgow city district within the Strathclyde region (together with neighboring Cambuslang). Rutherglen received the status of Royal Burg in 1126 by royal charter from King David I of Scotland, who reigned from 1124 to 1153.Rutherglen Burgh has Rutherglen railway station (opened in 184), and Croftfoot and Burnside stations closer to the southern parts of the city. Around 100 people are expected to participate in the parade organized by the Rutherglen Orange and Purple District 20 group to commemorate the 98th anniversary of the city's Orange Hall.
His statement comes after a police investigation began on Friday following vandalism in an orange room in Rutherglen.
