A meeting on Wednesday night saw the setting up of the Aberdeen Radical Independence campaigning group.
This group will run a parallel, autonomous campaign, separate from Yes Scotland, but will work together on areas of common interest like Trident when appropriate.
To this end, the group will work with the growing Radical Independence Conference (RIC) movement across Scotland to work for a Yes vote in the independence referendum – but with a distinctly radical perspective, focusing on the 5 principles that sum up their vision for a Scotland that is:
- Green and environmentally sustainable,
- Internationalist and opposed to Trident and war,
- For a social alternative to austerity and privatisation,
- A modern republic for real democracy, and
- Committed to equality and opposing discrimination on grounds of gender, race or sexuality.
If this sounds like your idea of a future Scotland and would like more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit us on facebook.
