The team behind a new project aimed at creating a hub which will allow pro-independence campaign groups to communicate and cooperate has launched an appeal for funding.
National Yes Registry [NYR] was formed in 2015 and set about contacting local Yes Scotland campaign groups that were still in existence but dormant after the 2014 independence referendum. The group hoped to re-activate the grass-roots campaign in anticipation of a second referendum.
Since December 2015 the National Yes Registry has held face-to-face meetings with Yes activists and organisations across Scotland. The meetings have resulted in around eighty Yes groups signing up to the concept.
The group plan to develop a special Indy App that will facilitate inter-group communication and discussion.
In a statement in support of the appeal, NYR said: “The creation and delivery of the NYR Indy App, as a FREE resource, will enhance all aspects of our grass root Yes movement’s campaigning capabilities over the coming months and years.
“Through its popular use, we hope to grow and encourage participation in the local group grass-root network to prepare ourselves, as a movement, for a flying start to Indyref2 and Scotland’s independence!”
“In order to ensure that the Indy App release to the public coincides with the 2nd anniversary of Scotland’s first Independence referendum, and all the accompanying media interest and free publicity that anniversary will generate, the Indy App has already been designed and its’ construction is well underway.”
