Peaceful sewage protest to be held at Stonehaven Harbour
This is a small, shore based, DIY protest in support of (but not affiliated with) the UK charity “Surfers Against Sewage” who are organising a series of nationwide protests on Saturday against the UK water companies who profit from this action.
There will be 12 lead protests hosted nation wide on this date.

The event is being organised by a friendly, local group of Stonehaven sea swimmers who are passionate about clean rivers and seas in Scotland, from an environmental perspective as well as for our own health and wellbeing as water lovers.
Please get dressed up in your wetsuits/swimming costumes/dry robes or just come regular clothes and paint some placards or stick a sign to your bodyboard, surfboard, paddleboard or tow float if you have one!
Some ideas might be: “Sick of Sewage” “End Sewage Pollution” “No to Sewage in Scottish Waters”.
Please note attendance will be entirely at your own risk as this gathering is not affiliated with any body or charity. Swimming is not prohibited in the harbour area itself and only from Botany Bay which is further along the Southern Shorehead road beyond the South Pier.
