Alex Salmond to make case for independence at Centre for UN Studies
Former First Minister and Alba Party leader Alex Salmond is to make a key note speech titled 'The Road to Scottish Independence': Charting the course for a free Scotland on the International Stage.' at the Centre for UN Studies.
Mr Salmond will make the speech on a visit to the University of Buckingham next month.
The university’s Centre for UN Studies has invited the Alba Party leader to speak at the Vinson Centre on Sept 5 at 6pm.
Mr Salmond said:
‘Our core belief is independence for our country. Not as an aspiration for the future but something to be delivered with urgency. The vision for an Independent Scotland that we seek is one that works cooperatively with the international community. One that prioritises peace and humanitarian work, not foreign conquest and invasion.
The levels of poverty in Scotland are a political scandal and parliament must now take bold and radical action to ensure that the scourge of inequality is no longer accepted in our great nation.’
The Centre for UN Studies holds regular talks with some of the world’s leading experts in their field.
Recent talks have included ‘Why the World must act now to halt and reverse fight Climate Change’ with His Excellency and former head of the United Nations, Ban Ki-Moon.
