Supporting the steps towards an independent Scotland with the voters of Dunbar and East Linton

Our next key events for Yes Dunbar members and others are as follows.

WED 17 APRIL 2024 – SPEAKER MEETING WITH ROBIN McALPINE

‘A coherent and achievable strategy for independence’

Robin McAlpine is Head of Strategic Development at Common Weal, a Scottish think tank which campaigns for social and economic equality, participative democracy, environmental sustainability, wellbeing, quality of life, peace, justice and cooperation. He has worked for nearly 30 years in journalism, public affairs, political strategy and policy and was a leading campaigner for Scottish independence in the 2014 referendum in Scotland. He writes for a wide range of sources on Scottish politics.

This event takes place at Dunbar Town House starting at 7pm on Wed 17 April 2024. There is no set charge, but we hope you will make a donation as you arrive (unless you are already giving regularly to Yes Dunbar). Pre-booking isn’t essential but it is helpful if you can let us know you are coming by email to secretary@yesdunbar.scot.

WED 29 MAY 2024 – SPEAKER MEETING WITH CLLR SHONA McINTOSH

Shona McIntosh is the only Scottish Green Party Councillor on East Lothian Council (elected in 2022). She has now been selected as her party’s candidate for Lothian East in the expected 2024 UK General Election.  She will be offering a personal reflection on her political journey, her work as a Councillor, and her vision for an independent Scotland in terms of the Scottish Greens’ approach to the General Election campaign.

This event takes place at Dunbar Town House starting at 7pm on Wed 29 May 2024. There is no set charge, but we hope you will make a donation as you arrive (unless you are already giving regularly to Yes Dunbar). Pre-booking isn’t essential but it is helpful if you can let us know you are coming by email to secretary@yesdunbar.scot.

[Note: Yes Dunbar is independent of political parties: we just encourage members to support a pro-indy candidate at elections. We held an event in Jan 2024 with Iain Whyte the SNP candidate for the 2024 General Election, and if candidates for this seat are confirmed from other pro-indy parties, we will seek to organise meetings with them, too.]
