Hope Over Fear Rally - Thousands gather in George Square today

Written by

Hope Over Fear -12th October 2014Thousands of people flocked to the centre of Glasgow today, for a rally in support of Scottish independence. The Hope Over Fear event, organised by the socialist campaign for an independent Scotland, attracted supporters of all ages from across the city and beyond.

The five-hour rally in George Square was aimed at maintaining the momentum of the Yes movement, following its defeat in the referendum just over three weeks ago.

As hundreds of Saltire flags were waved, Mr Sheridan, now co-convenor of Solidarity Scotland, rallied the crowd, "Some of you who are old enough will remember the last titanic battle with the British establishment that was taken to the brink - the 1984/5 miners' strike. I remember the South Wales miners' marching back to work in March of 1985 with a banner that is applicable to us here today. That banner read: this is the end. The end of the beginning. "This is the end of the beginning."

Supporting Independent Scottish Media

With all the goings on just now with the BBC and alleged copyrighted videos being the cause of the removal of a couple of independence supporter's accounts on youtube. I wonder what , or who is next? So it is important to show support for the Scottish independent media.
