Yes for EU is a campaign by pro-EU activists lobbying for Scottish Independence, which is the best means for Scotland to join the EU now that UK Labour is a Brexit party.
Supporters are diverse, including new Scots and Scots who voted ‘No’ in 2014.
Yes for EU’s shared passion is to promote peace, human rights, climate action, educational and research opportunities, economic wellbeing and freedom of movement – all the benefits that independence and full membership of the European Union will bring.
Yes for EU campaigns on a cross-party basis, supporting those political parties which already promote independence / self-determination and lobbying other parties to do so.
Through involvement in the protracted anti-Brexit campaign, Yes for EU activists have extensive experience of a range of campaign activities, including organising major marches/rallies, hustings and public meetings, regular stalls and vigils, etc.
Through such activities Yes for EU supporters have engaged effectively with members of the public, with local and regional elected representatives for Edinburgh and Lothians, and with other bodies and individuals.
Yes for EU Objectives
- to campaign for Scotland to join the EU via independence.
