Scottish Independence Grassroots movement All Under One Banner have much in store for us this year, once again!

Marches, pipe bands, speakers+fine Scottish music! What's not to enjoy? And with your help we can be the 66th nation to #endlondonrule

What a disgrace - that a man speaking Scots in the Scottish Parliament - which opened again in 1999 with a Scottish poem by our national bard - Rabbie Burns, also from Ayrshire - that Billy Kay is also from, is subjected to hate speech later on social media because he sent a truly uplifting message to the nation in the Scottish language.

Our message for Billy Kay is - Thank you for all that you...
"It’s the local elections tomorrow, and as with every election in Scotland over the past few years, it will be used as a proxy referendum on support for independence.

"However the anti-independence media and parties will as always ignore votes cast for pro-independence parties other than the SNP when they try to spin the results afterwards. We saw this very clearly after last year’s Holyrood...
Effective from 1975, the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973 passed by the tory government of Edward Heath introduced a system of two-tier local government in Scotland divided between large regional councils and smaller district councils. The only exceptions to this were the 3 island councils of Western Isles, Shetland and Orkney which had the combined powers of regions and districts.

Not necessarily connected to our campaign for 21st century Scottish independence, but none the less, maybe of interest to those who enjoy finding out more about local history:

Despite the BBC blackout of the 'B' word [aka Brexit] - whose trade agreements between the EU and the UK came fully into force one year ago today - research last week by the London School of Economics’ Centre for Economic Performance revealed the true impact of the new barriers on trade, subsequent increase in food prices, and found that the UK imports from the EU fell about 25% more than UK...

Ooh! it's only 2 weeks until the BIG MARCH and YESTIVAL in Glasgow on 14th May! Organised by All Under One Banner, this March is specifically to say Yes to Scottish Independence to give us the only really tangible tool we have to save our Scottish National Health Service. 💪

Scotland is being underfunded due to its dependency on westminster to decide what we get to spend on the devolved...
A new bill that would give the Treasury a veto over how devolved administrations spend money on reserved matters which could block Scotland from holding a second independence referendum is being drafted by former Scottish Labour MP George Foulkes -allegedly with the backing of senior Tory MP Liam Fox and the Conservative peer Michael Forsyth.

If passed, it would allow the UK Government to dictate...
Nicola Sturgeon has accused the Tories of having short-changed the people of the north-east of Scotland, claiming that the oil-rich region has been “robbed” of an eye-watering £1.77 billion: saying "The Tories should be ashamed of the way they have let down families, communities and businesses across the region – with broken promises and damaging cuts."

Some good news well worth sharing!
So you've probably heard the news that Julian Assange - Wikileaks founder who exposed war crimes, and other things that the public ought to know about- and has been in solitary confinement in Belmarsh Prison on appeal against being extradited to USA to stand trial for espionage - has lost his appeal.

The next course of action is to throw himself on the mercy of the uk Home Office - and Priti...
