Time for Scotland to break the connection with England
Press Release/Preas Ráiteas
Statement by the President of Republican Sinn Féin Des Dalton
On September 18 the Scottish people will have an opportunity to break the connection with England and begin the vital work of re-establishing their historic nationhood. A powerful array of forces have been ranged against an independent Scotland; Westminster, the EU, and lately the financial sector, including the Bank of England, have all joined in a campaign of fear designed to frighten the Scottish people from asserting their inherent right to nationhood. While as Irish Republicans we believe that the right to nationhood is inalienable and does not stand or fall on the basis of a referendum, we respect the right of the people of Scotland to use this mechanism to express their support for independence. We urge the people of Scotland not to be deflected by such nefarious methods and to vote yes on September 18.
