Emancipation Proclamation, Scottish Style

Free Scotland. Saor Alba. (Taken in Alba, summer 2010)

Below: Just an article to read that I found on Facebook. I thought I'd see if I had the technical skills to add it to a post, so here goes. It's a good piece--reasoned and intelligent--from the Belfast Telegraph.

Bruce at Bannockburn

Another good program to watch is the BBC Alba's story of Winnie Ewing, (in six-parts on youtube) ,which gives a good presentation of the SNP from its re-emergence in the 60s and 70s as the  tide of Scottish nationalism swelled and eventually led to a devolved Parliament, and finally, to the SNP's rise to power and the possibility of a free (restored) Scottish nation. No matter what happens in the referendum, the idea of independence for Scotland, and indeed, for Wales, Cornwall, Ireland (all of it), and Man--all the Celtic areas of modern Britain, is one that will never again be buried by those who espouse the "necessity and advantage" of an unholy Union.
