Democracy for Scotland: The Referendum Experience

This from our friends at the NATIONAL COLLECTIVE:

The new exhibition at the Museum of Edinburgh titled Democracy for Scotland: The Referendum Experience, bridges the years between the devolution campaigns of the late 20th century and the coming independence referendum of 2014, revealing what can be learnt from the movements of the past and what can be expected from the movement ahead.

The exhibition at the Museum of Scotland is open until the 24th of April. Free entry.

    This looks like it would be worth a wee trip to Edinburgh for. It’s particularly interesting to see the same old stories appearing in the “no” literature that we still see being thrown around on the internet today. It would be good to show it to people and say “look, they said it in 1979 and in 1997, and they’re saying it now. Do you really believe them?”

    Scotland has never voted on the union. But both times we’ve been offered the chance of more powers, we’ve voted in favour, even if the first one was knobbled. Why would we change the habit of a lifetime by saying “no” this time…?
