Train to Scotland in support of the radical case for independence

We're heading North to meet the radical Yes campaigners and to learn what we can from a vibrant atmosphere of fresh political ideas.

Following an exciting meeting with Scottish activists in Westminster, many people in attendance were very inspired by the radical aspects of the campaign for independence. Although under-reported in the South, there is a vibrant and growing movement to re-imagine and re-shape politics that we would like to support and learn from.

We will travel from London on Saturday 6th September 9.43am, to Glasgow, and return on Monday 8th September leaving at 4pm. All are welcome to join us and the group will include a women's delegation.

Contact jenny@redpepper.org.uk if you would like to find out more, or join us at any point during the weekend. The train stops in various towns including Preston and we have booked some of the cheaper tickets. We can also arrange free accommodation via the campaign network.

There will be an optional itinerary that we expect to include discussions of autonomy and independence; as well as much merriment!

More information coming soon.

Great to hear! You’ll be very welcome. Contrary to how many in the conservative media and in the conservative Labour Party might want to portray it, the independence movement has nothing to do with ‘Scotland v. England’. It’s about democracy, localism and social justice. Good luck.
