Edinburgh Branch – August Update

posted in: News | 1

August has turned into a busy month for the Edinburgh Contingent of English Scots for Yes.

On the 7th August, Jan went across to speak to Yes Edinburgh West. What was originally planned to be a quick introduction and a request that English Scots be included in their event planning turned into a wider discussion during the Q&A. There is a recording of the event on Yes Edinburgh West’s website for those who couldn’t make it.

We were also invited to join Yes Marchmont for a series of stalls in the Meadows on Saturdays to coincide with the Festival.  We had a great response and forged some good links with the other groups who used the opportunity to promote the independence cause to Edinburgh’s myriad visitors.

The Edinburgh Branch have also forged a partnership with the Edinburgh Yes Hub so you’ll soon be able to get a range of English Scots for YES branded items from there.

Finally we are hoping to speak to as many pro-independence groups as possible over the coming months to build working alliances ready for the next referendum.
