A great excuse for a party

A great excuse for a party

We are delighted to announce that Highland CND will be joining us at our event ‘A GUID NICHT OOT‘ to celebrate the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) receiving the Nobel Peace Prize at a ceremony in Oslo. The award is for the campaign’s critical contribution to the new UN Treaty to Prohibit Nuclear Weapons. Already the Treaty has been signed by 53 UN member states and it will come into force as soon as 50 states have ratified it.

Would be great if everyone could get their tickets asap so we have an idea of numbers for food, Thanks.

Promoting the Indy apps

Promoting the Indy apps

We are very lucky in the YES movement to have two superb apps at our disposal The IndyApp from NYR and Yes2Hub, both serving different purposes and complimenting each other perfectly. From news and analysis to communications we have it covered. These apps are of no good if we don’t all download and use them. 

Yes2Hub

Yes2 Hub is a social media platform promoting independence for Scotland, allowing you to easily follow and get notifications of the latest articles from pro-indy sites including Wings Over Scotland, Bella Caledonia, Newsnet Scotland and more.
The hub also cover livestreams by Independence Live & podcasts from the likes of Lesley Riddoch & Michael Greenwell.

In addition you can also follow other users and groups and create your own feed. The events section is especially useful for both promoting your events and finding any other events in your area.

Get the app on Google PLay

IndyApp

A networking app that will show you all registered groups (around 125 I believe) and after registering as a user will let you join any group or groups that appeal to you. The app has a messenger that will allow in group chat and in addition each group will have a couple of editors that can communicate with all other group editors via an editors forum. The app will also store useful group information such as events and campaigns.

Get the app on Google Play

Both of these apps not only deserve our support but will, I’m sure become essential tools when the next Indyref is called but we need to use them and build them now in preparation.

Day of Action Inverness

Day of Action Inverness

We enjoyed a great day and excellent reception in Inverness yesterday with our day of action in conjunction with InverYess2 ,CND ,Nairnshire YES ,Christians for Independence and All Under One Banner.

« 1 of 8 »

After an initial gazebo crisis, ‘makes mental note to start gazebo fundraiser’ we found many folk eager to engage and discuss a variety of issues and armed with some superb fresh leaflets from the Indy Poster Boy we were able to highlight not only the threat to Scottish parliament from the Tory power grab but also the great potential of Scottish resources if we were to go for Indy.

Every time we venture out now it seems, our group grows, contacts are made and the cause for Scottish Independence is advanced.

We were greatly encouraged by the number of EU nationals living in Scotland who identified themselves to us. Your support is greatly appreciated, thank you.

Without the continued support of our membership we would not be able to undertake ventures like this and to you, thank you. If you would like to support our future endeavours donations can be made here.

Solidarity with Catalonia

Solidarity with Catalonia

YES Ross & Sutherland as a non-aligned grassroots group within the YES movement supporting Scottish Independence, wish to affirm our support and absolute solidarity with our friends in Catalonia.
We fully support the right to self-determination and urge the Catalan people to seize the opportunities and security offered by a Sí vote.
To oppose the path of democracy as the Spanish Government are attempting to do is an attack on all basic human rights as enshrined in international law and is completely unacceptable.
We encourage our friends and comrades within the wider YES family to reach out and support Catalonia in every way possible.
