What’s the point of independence? Opponents routinely portray the independence movement as being about ‘divorce’ ‘break-up’ and separation. Those within it see it as an opening future – a path to create an alternative based on home-grown principles facing the realities of today.
This Sunday at the Piping Centre, Cowcaddens, (10.30 – 4.30 pm) the Scottish Independence Convention has invited a collection of people to share their ideas and their positive vision for the new Scotland. Your ideas and questions are welcome. We’ll be discussing:
Woman and the independence Vote – with blogger and Scotsman columnist Joan McAlpine, and comedian and SIC convenor Elaine C Smith. Innovating the Scottish Economy – with Prof Mike Danson, veteran political activist John McAllion, Mike Small, and economist and journalist George Kerevan
Re-imagining Scotland – with musician and writer Pat Kane, and writer, publisher, and activist Kevin Williamson.
Scotland and the World – with political activist, former ambassador to Uzbekistan Craig Murray and Osama Saeed of the Scottish-Islamic Foundation.
