Hope Over Fear - We'll be coming, Road to freedom rally Hope Over Fear - We'll be coming, Road to freedom rally with lots of music and family fun activity.

From organisers: As promised, at our previous rally in "Freedom Square, Hope over Fear are organising this event to, once again mark the anniversary of the 2014 Scottish independence referendum and more importantly, send a clear message to our First minister that "We're Still Yes," our numbers are growing and we're' ready for #indyref2 whenever it is called. We understand that Nicola has a very precarious road to navigate, avoiding the various pitfalls set by the establishment and their lackeys in the MSM, before setting a date for #indyref2 but we know it is coming. Despite the attacks and smears from the Msm and their lackeys "We'll be Coming" and aiming to build on our previous, hugeley successful events in order to let our First minister know that the grassroots are ready, the seeds of Independence are growing stronger and in the words of the Graham Brown Band "the passion for freedom in our eyes" is burning brighter than before. This will be a well organised family friendly event with speakers, performers and entertainment for all to enjoy. Acts and speakers will be announced in due course.

Stand Up To Racism Scottish Conference

Stand Up To Racism Scottish Conference Conference

A racist offensive is sweeping Europe, with governments and the right-wing media using migrants, refugees and Muslims as scapegoats for an economic crisis and wars they did not create. The racist tide will only be driven back by anti- racists standing up and confronting it. From Germany to Greece to the USA, people who want a society free from racism are saying no more. People are taking to the streets in large numbers to oppose racism, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism and to say migrants and refugees are welcome here. The EU Referendum campaign unleashed some of the most heinous racism and far-right nationalism we have seen in generations. Both sides used dehumanising language about refugees, and migrants became the number one scapegoat for falls in living standards, we are now witnessing a horrific increase in violent hate crimes. Exactly the same racist arguments were used against Jews, Irish, African, Caribbean, Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi communities. The Tories will use Brexit to whip up yet more anti-immigrant racism and accelerate their austerity policies and attacks on living standards. However people voted in the referendum, we now need to unite and take to the streets to demand an end to austerity policies, to stand up to anti-immigrant racism and show our solidarity with refugees and migrants. On 19th March 2016 over 20,000 people from across Britain took to the streets in Glasgow, London and Cardiff to say Refugees are Welcome Here and mark UN anti-racism day. Students and trade unionists, people of all faiths and none, migrants, musicians, teachers, pensioners and parents, took to the streets to make a defiant stand against racism. Together we showed unity in the face of racism. We will be back next year for another huge demonstration against all forms of racism. Unity is our strength so we cannot let racism divide us. We are the majority and we will stand up to racism.

The YES Movement A non party afiliated rally for Scottish Independence

The Yes Movement Rally on the 18th of September 2016, this is being held at Glasgow Green from 12pm until 8pm. This is going to be a day to remember. Why come? Why Volunteer? I would like to tell thee. Have any of you ever felt like you were here, to do something great with your life? Well you are and this is why we are all here. We are here to change the world. It is no easy task, but to us it is clear that the task is ours. That is why they called us the Bravest in all the stories. We will show the world there is another way to live, that social and cultural change is inevitable and that a new way of doing things is being birthed. A great human being once said 'Be the change you wish to see in the world'. For too long we have been realising that the entire system is corrupt. We have waited for those in power to change things, For someone to stand up and do what's right. None of them have, not really. We are creating this Movement together. As Humanity we can free ourselves from this system that none of us agreed to when we were born here, by taking our power back and in doing that, we show others how to free themselves from the Elitist system. To put it bluntly, the days of working to pay bills and die are over. We want more for ourselves and the generations to come. We stand for Equality, Contributing and Pioneering our own future. There are new way's to do things now and we all know that, we must venture into the unknown and discover 'HOW?' together. Please email [email protected] Your expertise as a wonderful human being is required if you are a First Aider, Stage Hand, Steward, Chaperone or you would like to set up a stall for the day. Please also feel free to contact us if you have any suggestions/ ideas, or if you would like to help us in anyway. All contributions are most welcomed. The system we live under is broken, we're not fixing it. We want to create a new one. Go bravely friends. We are the change bringers. Please Share this message, We look forward to hearing from you.

396 What now - with Tommy Sheppard

So what happens now? After the EU referendum the political landscape has been turned on it's head for us here in Scotland. Over the last week the likelihood of #indyref2 has increased greatly if we are to remain within the EU at all. This is not a time to be a *45 any more, this is the opportunity to make the case for independence and reach those that have either changed their mind to Yes or have doubts and questions we can answer better than in 2014. Yes Edinburgh Southern are having a get together on the 29th of July at the Yes Cafe in Liberton. We will have a social evening to catch up, chat, digest goings on, share opinions and ideas on what to do next.

In April 2016, a witness bearing delegation from Scotland visited the infamous 'jungle' camp in Calais. The delegation formed part of a sustained series of high profile visits which has enabled the situation in Calais to become a matter of public concern after years of obscurity. Those who formed part of the recent delegation included SNP MPs from the Justice and Home Affairs Select Committee, academics, clinicians, campaigners and those who have long experience in working with refugees in Scotland. Please join members of the delegation share some what they witnessed during their four days at the camps and also reflect on the potential impacts there of the recent EU referendum result . "At times of chronic humanitarian crisis, an active approach is that of bearing witness. Bearing witness is uncomfortable and provoking. There is a need for us not to flinch from the acute discomfort, even anger and helplessness, of being witnesses to what, wittingly or unwittingly, our policies and voting habits, foreign and domestic, have done" (Alison Phipps).

Hope Over Fear - We'll be coming, Road to freedom rally Hope Over Fear - We'll be coming, Road to freedom rally with lots of music and family fun activity.

From organisers: As promised, at our previous rally in "Freedom Square, Hope over Fear are organising this event to, once again mark the anniversary of the 2014 Scottish independence referendum and more importantly, send a clear message to our First minister that "We're Still Yes," our numbers are growing and we're' ready for #indyref2 whenever it is called. We understand that Nicola has a very precarious road to navigate, avoiding the various pitfalls set by the establishment and their lackeys in the MSM, before setting a date for #indyref2 but we know it is coming. Despite the attacks and smears from the Msm and their lackeys "We'll be Coming" and aiming to build on our previous, hugeley successful events in order to let our First minister know that the grassroots are ready, the seeds of Independence are growing stronger and in the words of the Graham Brown Band "the passion for freedom in our eyes" is burning brighter than before. This will be a well organised family friendly event with speakers, performers and entertainment for all to enjoy. Acts and speakers will be announced in due course.

Stand Up To Racism Scottish Conference Conference

A racist offensive is sweeping Europe, with governments and the right-wing media using migrants, refugees and Muslims as scapegoats for an economic crisis and wars they did not create. The racist tide will only be driven back by anti- racists standing up and confronting it. From Germany to Greece to the USA, people who want a society free from racism are saying no more. People are taking to the streets in large numbers to oppose racism, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism and to say migrants and refugees are welcome here. The EU Referendum campaign unleashed some of the most heinous racism and far-right nationalism we have seen in generations. Both sides used dehumanising language about refugees, and migrants became the number one scapegoat for falls in living standards, we are now witnessing a horrific increase in violent hate crimes. Exactly the same racist arguments were used against Jews, Irish, African, Caribbean, Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi communities. The Tories will use Brexit to whip up yet more anti-immigrant racism and accelerate their austerity policies and attacks on living standards. However people voted in the referendum, we now need to unite and take to the streets to demand an end to austerity policies, to stand up to anti-immigrant racism and show our solidarity with refugees and migrants. On 19th March 2016 over 20,000 people from across Britain took to the streets in Glasgow, London and Cardiff to say Refugees are Welcome Here and mark UN anti-racism day. Students and trade unionists, people of all faiths and none, migrants, musicians, teachers, pensioners and parents, took to the streets to make a defiant stand against racism. Together we showed unity in the face of racism. We will be back next year for another huge demonstration against all forms of racism. Unity is our strength so we cannot let racism divide us. We are the majority and we will stand up to racism.

The YES Movement A non party afiliated rally for Scottish Independence

The Yes Movement Rally on the 18th of September 2016, this is being held at Glasgow Green from 12pm until 8pm. This is going to be a day to remember. Why come? Why Volunteer? I would like to tell thee. Have any of you ever felt like you were here, to do something great with your life? Well you are and this is why we are all here. We are here to change the world. It is no easy task, but to us it is clear that the task is ours. That is why they called us the Bravest in all the stories. We will show the world there is another way to live, that social and cultural change is inevitable and that a new way of doing things is being birthed. A great human being once said 'Be the change you wish to see in the world'. For too long we have been realising that the entire system is corrupt. We have waited for those in power to change things, For someone to stand up and do what's right. None of them have, not really. We are creating this Movement together. As Humanity we can free ourselves from this system that none of us agreed to when we were born here, by taking our power back and in doing that, we show others how to free themselves from the Elitist system. To put it bluntly, the days of working to pay bills and die are over. We want more for ourselves and the generations to come. We stand for Equality, Contributing and Pioneering our own future. There are new way's to do things now and we all know that, we must venture into the unknown and discover 'HOW?' together. Please email [email protected] Your expertise as a wonderful human being is required if you are a First Aider, Stage Hand, Steward, Chaperone or you would like to set up a stall for the day. Please also feel free to contact us if you have any suggestions/ ideas, or if you would like to help us in anyway. All contributions are most welcomed. The system we live under is broken, we're not fixing it. We want to create a new one. Go bravely friends. We are the change bringers. Please Share this message, We look forward to hearing from you.

Leith Said Aye! A year after the Indyref, join Yes Edinburgh North and Leith for a mini festival of politics and a celebration of extraordinary times.

We'll look back over the period when we learned so much about ourselves, our communities and our country and we'll look forward to how we continue to put that wealth of knowledge and campaigning experience to good use in asking: Where now for Scotland? – creating the early days of a better nation. Come and join the discussion – all sessions will be led by a presenter and there will be plenty of opportunity to have your say. Programme includes: • Creating the early days of a better nation now – with Lesley Riddoch (broadcaster, author of Blossom) • We need to get above ourselves – with Mike Small (Bella Caledonia) and Ivan McKee (SNP) • Building a better Leith – with Jil Murphy (Leith Pays the Living Wage), Evie Love (Crops in Pots) and Audrey Birt (health and social care expert) • How we win next time – with Robin MacAlpine (Common Weal) • Tales from the Year of Yes – with Professor Iain Black

PROTEST TO OPPOSE HOSPTIAL BEING NAMED AFTER MONARCH live from the new Southern General hospital

The Scottish Government have buried their heads in the sand and are hoping this goes away. Their replies to my email have been nothing short of disgraceful. The more journalists dig into this story, the more questions are raised about the whole saga. In light of this, we have decided to organise a protest on the 23rd of October at 14:30 at the Govan Road entrance to the new hospital. We hope that you can come along to show solidarity with those of us who feel it is unacceptable to name a taxpayer funded public hospital after a monarch, the beacon of inequality. Bring banners (tasteful ones please). For event details. Search PROTEST AT NEW SOUTHERN GENERAL HOSPITAL in Facebook and the page will appear.

Hands Over Our Forth a public protest against Underground Coal Gasification (UCG)

Anti-frack/Unconventional Gas Extraction (UGE) groups from across the central belt of Scotland and beyond - including community action groups and other organisations - will be joining forces to actively demonstrate to the Scottish Government, that UCG (Underground Coal Gasification) must be included in the current moratorium, from which it was omitted in the January 2015 statement. From then on, we will be demanding an all-out ban. We have the support of the Broad Alliance and regional action groups from all over Scotland and south of the border. People from all over Scotland are invited to join us in standing on the Forth Road Bridge, from North Queensferry side in Fife to South Queensferry side. In order to do this, we need as many volunteers as possible. It is estimated that we need approximately 1800 people to participate so if you're free and want to be part of urging our government to change something, please come along. If you know any local group/organisation/club who'd be interested in being involved, please share this information/FB event with them. Let's make a hUGE statement and not allow our government to ignore the public outcry and opposition to these processes. Your support is needed at this family-friendly event, organised by and for Scottish Communities, please bring your family, friends and neighbours. Hope to see you all, there! :)

HOPE OVER FEAR: SEIZE THE DAY RALLY George Square, Glasgow. Lots of great speakers including Mark McGowan, The Artist Taxi Driver plus great music...

The Hope Over Fear campaign will not shirk its responsibilities. On May 7th 2015 we have a unique opportunity in Scotland to wipe out the blue, yellow and red Tories in one fell swoop. We can electorally punish those who lined up with the billionaires and millionaires to lie, deceive and bully our nation into submission. We are not too small, too poor or too scared to move forward into a new and better world and by uniting the pro-Scotland and anti-Establishment vote in May 2015 we can realise our dreams. Bring the family and enjoy another great day out while listening to the speakers from all political backgrounds and on the importance of using your vote wisely at the general election. There will also be many amazingly talented artists and musicians for you to enjoy on the day. In the words of Gerry Cinnamon's inspiring anthem of our movement, "Hope Over Fear, Carpe Diem". Let’s seize the day in 2015. NOTE: Mark McGowan, The Artist Taxi Driver will be one of the speakers :) FACEBOOK EVENT: https://www.facebook.com/events/401561463337441/

BBC Bias Peaceful Protest #2 Around 1:30 - 3:30pm BBC Bias Peaceful Protest #2 - The People's Voice!

BBC Bias Peaceful Protest #2 - The People's Voice! Sunday, June 29 at 1:30pm - 3:30pm BBC Scotland Studios, Pacific Quay G51 1 Glasgow, United Kingdom This is a protest against bias from the self-proclaimed “impartial” BBC. The most important issue we need to highlight is the repeated omission of relevant facts, information & answers that has kept Scotland in the dark about the real independence debate. The BBC’s coverage is ruining the run up to the biggest decision in our history. People are suitably sickened by the BBC & other mainstream media and their one sided conveyor belt of scare stories portrayed against our economic prospects, EU membership and the currency of an independent Scotland. Sometimes the bias is not in what they do cover but what they don't cover in their news & current affairs programmes. Specific examples of bias that concerns us are as follows: Make up of Question Time panels. Irish & Luxembourg EU ministers views misrepresented. UKIP promotion during EU elections. University of the West of Scotland report on bias on evening news programmes (BBC & STV) University of the West of Scotland report on bias on Radio Scotland Good Morning Scotland show The BBC's membership of the CBI which opposes independence and even tried to become an official member of the no campaign until a U turn after a mass cancellation of membership by Scottish companies. Different styles of questioning for Yes/No including more frequent interruptions from interviewers. The list goes on… Let's keep up the pressure on the old BBC and arrange their next outing as a massive anti-bias operation! Bring your saltires, banners, balloons, friends, family and loud voices. Make it a day to remember! Everyone is welcome from both sides of the debate. Groups that wish to protest about other instances of BBC bias unrelated to the independence debate are also more than welcome to attend.
