Nick Durie

ALBA Candidate for Glasgow North

Nick is a tenant and housing activist and professional community organiser with a background in homelessness. He has delivered campaigns to negotiated settlement with SSE, Glasgow City Council, the Wheatley Group, the London Mayoralty and other institutions; Nick never shies from a fight, and is passionate about putting power in the hands of ordinary people.

Organised people can defeat organised money, something that defines Nick's political outlook. He is a lifelong champion of the transformative potential of Scottish independence, growing up overlooking oil rigs at the Port of Dundee, now filled with windfarm components, alongside the low wages and unemployment seen in surrounding schemes. He is 40 years old, married with two children, and based in the Wyndford in Maryhill.

Most of his adult life has been spent living and campaigning the North of Glasgow. Outside of his activism Nick enjoys dog walking, gardening, woodland maintenance and tree felling, Olympic weightlifting, kettlebells and macebells, and seeing as much of the Scottish countryside as he can.
