In the run up to the Holyrood elections in May 2021, we campaigned in constituencies where the majority of voters are pro-EU, yet had unionist, pro-Brexit MSPs. We believe that the situation has changed drastically since the last independence referendum: the UK has left the European Union and the UK’s new internal market means that the Westminster government will be able to over-rule Scotland’s devolved powers.
The result of these elections and the recently agreed power-sharing agreement between the SNP and the Scottish Green Party sends a strong message to Westminster that Scotland is committed to retaining its devolved powers, to Independence and to EU Membership.
If your Yes group would like to work with us in achieving our twin aims, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org
Our 2022 Street Stalls Campaign is well under way, aimed at raising awareness of the threat to Scotland’s devolved powers and the benefits of independence, including membership of the European Union. Our next street stall dates are listed below. Please contact us for location.
