The Independence Lectures
“The Independence Lectures” is organised by RIC in collaboration with Pluto Press and Word Power books. This series of public events brings renowned academics, authors and thinkers to introduce radical arguments on a variety of topics related to Scotland’s constitutional debate. In these opening lectures Tariq Ali, author, novelist, filmmaker and icon of the 1960s uprising talks of the struggle for Scottish democracy and brings a new level of debate to the fore. Such occasion makes a mockery of the unionist lapdog press attempts to caricature the independence movement with his emphasis on internationalism, resistance, struggle and the vital role of of political movements of change.
