Yes Scotlands Future social media activists

This is the full text we supplied to the National newspaper for the article about the readiness of the Yes movement in the article printed this morning.

Yes Scotlands Future are a collective of activists on social media who have been active since before 2014.

Our Mantra is positivity, good humour and above all understanding the manipulation and bias in mainstream media.

The Yes movement has been like a group of planes flying in a ‘holding’ pattern above Scotland since 2014.

Some have crashed and burned already, or fallen out with each other, but many have gone on to develop a strong network built on trust , friendship and a common belief in a better Scotland.

There will always be “egos” in any movement but we try to sidestep those and just get on with it.

The Brexit shambles has exacerbated things and made people impatient but it has also revealed the true nature of the union, it is broken beyond repair.

The people who share posts on our pages are ordinary Scots looking to get involved. There is still a role for pages like this to help put information in front of people to help them argue the case for independence.We just need a date to land safely and get a move on.

Why Freedom

Wave a saltire and speak of freedom and instantly people outwith the iScotland movement think of the film Braveheart and mistakenly attribute that romanticised notion to the motivation of Yes. The fact couldn’t be further from the truth, Yes we want to regain Scotland’s independent governance but not as a return to the past but rather as a push toward the future. The chance to create something new from the ground up, a country driven for the good of its people(s) with social justice at its heart.

The dictionary defines freedom thus;

1.The power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants.
1.1 Absence of subjection to foreign domination or despotic government.
1.2 The power of self-determination attributed to the will; the quality of being independent of fate or necessity.
2The state of not being imprisoned or enslaved.
2.1 The state of being unrestricted and able to move easily.
2.2 Unrestricted use of something.

Freedom for Scotland simply put is this…

The chance to change and be better.
