There is usually an event at the poverty plaque in George Square on this day.The stone plaque stands as a permanent reminder that in Glasgow, as in so many parts of the world, “poverty is neither inevitable nor acceptable”. After years of campaigning by Glasgow Braendam Link, this Commemorative Stone plaque, carved in granite and similar to the one in Paris,  was laid in earth brought from Paris (the Headquarters of ATD Fourth World), Stirling
