OK. I said I’d never ask for donations on this blog, but I’d like to be somewhat less hypocritical than Better Together and ask for a donation of sorts anyway. Not donations of money, but donations of time and talent.
A short while back, Pilar Aymara of A Ponte Entre Escocia e Galiza and the Wee Ginger Dug announced the launch of a campaign called Solidarity with Scotland, which hopes to encourage people living outside the UK to write to the British Embassy or High Commission in their country to express their support for Scottish independence. We started this wee campaign because the British Government is actively seeking the interventions of foreign governments and businesses in an effort to provide the No campaign with ammunition.
We’ve prepared a few texts and a draft letter, and have already been able to organise translations into Spanish, Galician, Swedish, and also Basque and Catalan. We would like to make the letter available in as many languages as possible, in order to allow as many people as possible to express their positive views of Scotland and her campaign for self-determination.
If you are fluent in another language, we’d be grateful if you could spare an hour or two of your time to translate the letters and texts we have prepared.
