Strathclyde Student’s Union will be closing its doors at 7 pm tonight, Thursday 28, to show support for the student led Big Night In Glasgow campaign.

The campaign has gained a huge following and the support of local businesses following the shocking reports of spiking by injection across Scotland, including in Glasgow city centre.

The Big Night In encourages the public to boycott clubs for one night to raise awareness and to call on nighttime industries bosses to take urgent action in implementing stricter safety measures.

Nesha Malone, the Strathclyde union vice president said: “As a student bar in Glasgow, we are 100% focused on student safety.

“We are now looking at further measures that can increase safety and we believe other bars should do the same.

“We want everyone to be safe in all Glasgow bars and clubs so that they can enjoy a night out without fear of attack.

“We are also sending a strong message to clubs and bars that we expect to be looked after in their venues, we are happy to support them by providing our custom, they should be happy to support us in return by providing safety measures that actually work.”

 Strathclyde union is a living wage employer and will pay its staff their regular wage during the closure.
