“St Andrew's Declaration can unite YES movement” says Hanvey
Speaking today at the ALBA “Way Forward” Special National Assembly ALBA Westminster Leader Neale Hanvey MP said:
“This meeting today represents the beating heart of the Independence movement, drawn from all parties and none, who want to see our country realise its full economic, social, and cultural potential as an independent country among the other independent nations of Europe and the World.
“The key question is how do we get there? It is our collective duty to signpost the way.
“Not one person, not one party, but a movement united.
“A movement that will map out a democratic, legal, and constitutional route to Independence - just as Alex Salmond did before the Referendum in 2014. It was this that led to the extraordinary rise of the Yes movement in answer to that call.
“The St Andrew’s Day Declaration shows the way. Grounded in the Scottish Constitutional tradition it asserts the sovereign will of the people of Scotland to determine the form of government best suited to our needs.
“Now is the time for every MP, MSP, and Councillor, who believes in Independence to sign that Declaration, to bend Westminster to that sovereign will.
“Now is the time to put country before party, to unite the movement and to win our country’s freedom.”
