Over 1,300 Artists Sign Letter In Support of Yes Vote

2014-06-17-at-21-39-44David-Officer_1000

On Saturday 30th August 2014, the following letter was sent to artists of all kinds across Scotland. By the close of day, it had garnered over 200 signatures. With a deadline of Tuesday at midnight, it was thought that perhaps we would receive around 600 names.

Instead, over 1,300 artists have signed this statement of support for independence. That we have gathered the support of a great deal of well-kent folks is not the story. The story is the movement. This is the culmination of over 2 years of campaigning by National Collective and others in the cultural movement for Yes. These individuals represent the tip of the iceberg of a grassroots movement that has galvanised the entire country, often far from the gaze of prime-time news outlets.This is not about celebrity. It is about imagination, creative-thinking and a desire for change.

As such, those who have signed up are presented alphabetically, with no hierarchy in terms of authorship. This letter was led by individuals within National Collective, but is not limited to its membership. The letter will appear on the National Collective website, with the opportunity for people to continue adding their names in support of it. In the meantime, here is the letter; here are the supporters.

The Letter:

We believe that Scotland can and should be an independent country.

We believe that Scottish culture will flourish come what may, but that political independence will give the people of Scotland the opportunity to build a better country, both socially and politically. We believe that our culture is shaped by how we choose to conduct politics, and that democracy is better served with power closer to home. We believe that with independence the people of Scotland and their elected representatives will be able to address the issues Scotland has to face as a nation.

We understand there are uncertainties. We embrace them. We understand that a yes vote is not a panacea to solve all Scotland’s ills. We are not voting yes because we think Scotland is better than other countries. We are voting yes because we believe it is equal to them. We are voting yes because we have imagined a better country. Now, we want to build it.
