The Leith dockers strike was a strike that brought the town of Leith to a standstill after dock workers demanded an increase in pay, better working conditions, and shorter hours. The strike had an effect on the local community by not allowing trade to flow smoothly out of the docks. There totaled around 4,600 people a part of the strikes and riots but it ended near the middle of August with no demands met. since then two more strikes would happen at the same location, once in 1983 and, most recently, in 1989.

Name Meaning

Ostensibly from the vocabulary word denoting the flower (Latin rosa). However, the name was in use throughout the Middle Ages, long before any of the other girls' names derived from flowers, which are generally of 19th-century origin. In part it may refer to the flower as a symbol of the Virgin Mary, but it seems more likely that it also has a Germanic origin, probably as a short form of various girls' names based on hros ‘horse’ or hrōd ‘fame’. The Latinate form Rohesia is commonly found in documents of the Middle Ages. As well as being a name in its own right, it is currently used as a short form of Rosemary and, less often (because of their different pronunciation), of other names beginning Ros-, such as Rosalind and Rosamund .
