I'm voting yes! [Video]

The team here at Sign for Scotland have just released our latest video: 'I'm voting yes'. It is the biggest project we have undertaken so far and was great fun to be involved in. We plan to add more videos to our YouTube channel in the lead up to the referendum so keep an eye out for them!

'I'm voting yes' is our first chain video and features many of the key figures from within the independence debate. This included three of Scotland's leading politicians; Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, Minister for International Development Humza Yousaf MSP and John Finnie MSP (who has helped our group so much since we started last year). Other recognisable figures such as Jonathon Shafi from Radical Independence and McV also added contributions.

Women for Independence sent us a number of recordings and we were very grateful to receive them.  Natalie McGarry and Shona McAlpine have done a great deal of work so far in the campaign and we're sure they will play important roles in the months to come. We're really proud to have them, and all the other Women for Independence members, feature in our video.

We'd like to wish Natalie all the best for the upcoming Cowdenbeath By-Election
We also received clips from Yes Scotland board members. Having support from Blair Jenkins, Elaine C Smith, Dennis Canavan, Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh and Colin Fox made us feel really valued and makes us determined to contribute as much as we can to help achieve a 'Yes' vote in September.

The last couple of 'thank yous' we'd like to make are to the people of 'Yes Moray', 'Yes Moray Coast', 'Yes Speymouth', 'Yes Fiddlers', Charlie and Craig from the Proclaimers and those who we recorded at the 2013 March and Rally for Scottish Independence. Unfortunately we couldn't use every clip we received, but the thought and time given is much appreciated.

From everyone at Sign for Scotland (from those who featured in the video to those who were a little too shy to get in front of the camera) we'd like to say 'thank you' for helping us.
Finally, we have a project that we'd like to do before September, so if you use BSL (at whatever level) and would like to feature in a future Sign for Scotland video, then please contact us. Our email address is:
Normal blogs will resume next week
