The YES movement working together. It does happen!
The YES movement is as broad and deep as Loch Ness. This is its power but it can also be its weakness.
Over the last (insert time period when you first thought “hold on a minute, aren’t we all supposed to be on the same side?”) I will go for “wee while”, we have seen many figures and organisations in the movement bash up against one and another.
All too often in the gaze of Twitter, but thankfully not too often, in the full light of the general public.
But as the year draws to a close I want to highlight what the movement can achieve when it works together.
On the 30th and 31st of December, Independence Live will run a two-day virtual event showing twelve hours of brilliant content: IndyREPLAY#1
Four organisations (and one super productive person) have donated content for the event:
- Believe in Scotland
- Phantom Power
- the Scottish Currency Group and
- Voices for Scotland
You may have heard about it via the National.
So far the indy movement has donated over £800 for those two charities.
The Good Guys
Of course, we have to look way beyond a newspaper, four organisations and a Phantom Power to REALLY see who is behind this.
It is politicians. Campaigners. Singers. Songwriters. Poets. Authors. Journalists: everyone who makes this movement so powerful. There is a wealth of content befitting a wealth of talent in the movement.
The more people who attend the more impact we have. We can:
- Show a great example of the movement working together (even if it is just to those on Scottish Twitter)
- Put some great content in front of YESers and soon to be YESers (or as others call them “current no voters”)
- Raise £1000s for Tiny Changes and the Rock Trust.
The two cheques will read “From the independence movement”
Hopefully, you can tell how united the movement is by how many people will retweet this post AND join the IndyREPLAY#1
Thanks so much to AUOB, Believe in Scotland, Phantom Power, the Scottish Currency Group and Voices for Scotland.
