Yes Edinburgh West meeting minutes
Clermiston Inn, 7.30pm Mon 27 June 2016
Ian Grant opened the meeting by welcoming everybody, noting that it was scheduled within 3 days of a Brexit vote, to discuss the implications for Scotland, the Yes movement and particularly our own group.
Gerry Mulvenna posted a video Livestream broadcast for the benefit of people who couldn’t make the meeting. Apologies about the level of background noise – we’ll meet in the function room next time!
There were 43 attendees. Email addresses given will be added to the mailing list unless anyone objects.
With clips from the December 2015 conference in Largs and an interview with Jason Baird, the latest video from the National Yes registry sets out their vision for achieving a working network of grassroots YES groups by 18 September 2016.
We, the undersigned, collectively urge all other likeminded groups and individuals with a belief in the need for a powerful non-party political grass-root voice in the campaigning direction and timing of Scotland’s next strides toward full Independence, to join us in creating this collectively owned, self-organised re-formation and continuation of Yes’s urgent grass-root driven demand for a return to full Scottish Independence.
All Yes Edinburgh West activists are invited to attend a meeting on Monday 13 June 2016 at 7.30pm in the Clermiston Inn. The meeting will cover progress at a local level since our formalising meeting in January 2016 and developments on the national level, particularly with the National Yes Registry. Decisions will be made on what activity and campaigning we should focus on. Our shipment of Wee Black Books will be available.
On 17 Nov 2015, Jason Baird addressed a meeting of Yes Edinburgh West in the Clermiston Inn, to pitch his concept of a grassroots network of Yes groups, which he has given the working title of the National Yes Registry.
His ideas were accepted very positively and two delegates from our group (Anne Donohoe and Bob Glen) were elected to attend a conference in Largs on Sat 5 December 2015.
In between the pitch and discussion we were entertained by the Indy Choir – you can hear their wonderful harmonies in the following video clips.
