With these words, over 330 years ago, the Court of Session in Edinburgh rejected slavery... But slavery still survives around the world, even in Scotland.
Welcome to the website of the Tumbling Lassie Committee - we exist to raise awareness and funds for charities fighting against modern slavery and people trafficking and to help survivors in Scotland and beyond.
If you agree with usthat slavery should belong only in the history books, please help us to support charities that are working to make that a reality.
See the Events 2018 page for news of three Tumbling Lassie-related events which took place at Festivals in Edinburgh in August 2018 along with details of our events held in April 2018, and to find out how you can still donate to our appeal.
