ALBA call for direct action to deliver progress on Independence

The General Secretary of Alex Salmond’s Alba Party has called for Westminster to be ground to a halt and for peaceful direct action to be held in the new year.

Alba’s General Secretary Chris McEleny says that “it is time to act to bend Westminster to the will of Scotland”.

McEleny said “As we look to 2023, in what will be a pivotal year, the Independence movement must use every democratic, and constitutional route open to us, including parliamentary disruption, diplomatic initiative and direct action on the streets to assert the right of the people of Scotland to decide our own constitutional future.”
