Independence

See video

Hi, my name’s Kirsty. I’m going to be born on 18th September 2014, the very same day as the referendum on independence for Scotland.

The question is what kind of country will I grow up in?

Will it be a Scotland that is fairer and more prosperous? A Scotland where I can reach my full potential?

Will it be a Scotland of opportunity, where free higher education is a right for all, and going to Uni depends on your ability, not your bank balance?

Will the land of my birth be a true nation that stands proudly alongside all other nations, with a voice and a vote to help build a better world?

Will my Scotland be free of weapons of mass destruction and a country that can never be led by others into illegal wars?

Will I grow up in a Scotland where our wealth and natural resources are in Scotland’s hands, not squandered by Westminster governments we didn’t even vote for?

Will my mum and dad be able to live their old age with dignity, in a Scotland that respects and cares for its pensioners?

Will my own kids be born into a society that is more equal and safer, a society that reflects the true values of Scotland?

Will I raise my family in a Scotland where the decisions about our future are taken by the people who care most about Scotland, the people who live here?

The answer to every one of these questions can be yes. But only if Scotland becomes an independent nation.

On Thursday 18th September 2014 please vote yes, for Scotland, for yourself and for all of Scotland’s children.
