This was a very valuable meeting for us and Audrey’s advice is essential for all activists for Scottish Independence. Ultimately support for independence is increased and imaginings of a new nation are created, one conversation at a time. “People follow people”, Audrey said and ultimately it will be one-to-one conversations, which will shift the balance towards independence. Changing one’s point of view on an issue is a process which can sometimes ebb and flow, so listening to the fears and concerns of others in conversations related to independence is an important first step to establishing a relationship, where any cycle of change has room to proceed at everyone’s individual pace.

Watch what Audrey had to say in full in these livestream videos.
