Recently I went and gave a talk for the local Yes group in Denny. It was a great evening. Phantom Power films were on hand to record the event and have produced this short video of the occasion which also features an interview with Michael Greenwell of the Scottish Independence podcasts.

Phantom Power Films are currently fundraising for an ambitious new project to produce a series of films documenting Scotland’s progress to independence. It’s well worthwhile digging into your pockets and giving a couple of quid to help see this great idea realised. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/perspective-scottish-politics-arts#/
