Veterans for Scottish Independence Speaking at Greater Glasgow Group Meeting

Some time ago IndyLive Radio put out a call for a Forces Veteran to talk on their programme. About 40 veterans turned up!

Our Glasgow P4Indy Group was interested in hearing from independence supporters who have been or […]

Choc Tactics!

The P4Indy folk in Dumfries and Galloway have been giving away money! Chocolate money. This is their cracking response to their local MP’s recent statement about the worth of a future independent Scotland’s own currency. He said the folk in Dumfriesshire wouldn’t want it. We’re hoping to hear back from Dumfries P4Indy on how many […]

The Greater Glasgow Unicorn’s Maiden Voyage

Yesterday saw the first of the AUOB marches wend its way through Glasgow. It definitely wasn’t the right time to try exiting the M8 at Charing Cross! Police reckon 35,000 made it Glasgow Green but unofficial tallies put it at nearer 80,000. Either way it was a lot of independence supporters. Here’s how Mary McCabe, […]

P4Indy Goes Live!!

This is me, Marlene, on IndyLive Radio last week. I was a bit nervous about doing it but Norrie was very good at getting the ball rolling and keeping it rolling! Once I got into my stride, I really enjoyed it. I asked Val Gauld, our Glasgow Twitter person, along as well. As you can […]

The singers and musicians of the Warblers are all members of the Glasgow P4Indy Group. We had our first outings during Burns Week. More recently we’ve been rehearsing to sing at the P4Indy AGM held in Edinburgh on 16March. One of us had the idea of writing some new lyrics to an old tune. She […]

Talks from Our AGM

The 16 March was that Saturday when Scotland was caught in a jetstream-powered downpour of rain, sleet and snow but 70 of us still made our way to our AGM in Edinburgh. We were very fortunate to have three speakers joining us: Edinburgh City Councillor Ashley Graczyk, Joanna Cherry QC MP, and Paul Kavanagh-Mosson with […]

WordClouds for Independence

Last month the Glasgow P4Indy had a visit from Bill Mills talking to us about Reframing. This month we wanted to explore his ideas from different angles so we created a workshop format looking at the values we associate with an independent Scotland. We did two workshops – one about values we as Yes voters […]

Warblers In Action for Burns Week

A couple of months back I wrote about the Glasgow P4Indy group’s choir – The P4Indy Warblers.

But we thought maybe […]
