Independence Top of Agenda At this Weekend’s ALBA Party Spring Conference
INDEPENDENCE will be top of the agenda at the Spring Conference of ALBA Party which is being held this Saturday in Inverness.
ALBA Party delegates will arrive at Eden Court in the Highland Capital with a spring in their steps as this week a third opinion survey in a month showed that they are on course to win seats in the Scottish Parliament.
In the same Survation survey independence polled 48%, something that ALBA Party Depute leader Kenny MacAskill says shows that “ support for independence remains high and it’s time to drive forward to deliver it as an immediate priority for Scotland”.
In a packed agenda, ALBA Party delegates will debate a wide range of topics from independence to Scotland’s roads and the “threat” Cancel Culture poses to democracy.
Delegates will also hit out at the UK Government’s “theft” of Scotland’s energy resources and they will back Scotland’s Fishing communities in opposition to controversial Highly Protected Marine Areas (HPMAs) which are being pushed through by the Scottish Greens in Government.
ALBA Party’s Conference will also call for an independence convention to be established to “ create the blueprint for, and devise the route to, an independent Scotland.” Those in attendance will also be asked to agree for “ALBA to be willing to co-operate with other independence parties to stand for election as Scotland United on a joint mandate to initiate independence negotiations.”
Commenting ALBA Party Depute Leader Kenny MacAskill MP said:
"Over the past year, ALBA Party have now held over 50 pro-independence public meetings across the length and breadth of Scotland.
"ALBA has been connecting to the people of Scotland with many of our policies: from our support for the future of Scotland’s North Sea Energy Sector; our calls to have road dualling projects completed; our campaign for free school meals for Scotland’s school children and importantly the urgency that we are campaigning for Scotland’s independence as an immediate priority.
"Support for independence remains very high and ALBA Party will now play our part in ensuring the people of Scotland have the choice to take Scotland’s future back into Scotland’s hands."
