“I’m from Catalonia, from the middle of the region. In my country we are in the same kind of process, but different, because we don’t have an agreement from the Spanish government to hold the referendum. But I hope we’ll do the same. Scotland first, then Catalonia.”

“I think we’re starting to win the argument. I think we have absolutely won the argument about an independent Scotland opening up opportunities for social justice, to actually have a more egalitarian society. That change isn’t going to happen at Westminster. My fear about the No vote is what happens, because all the polls right now are showing it pretty likely that the Conservatives will win in 2015, and that terrifies me. What is going to happen to ordinary people in Scotland and beyond? This is the one chance we have to break beyond that type of politics.”

“It could be a beacon for other places, if Scotland was independent and at the same time grappled with the question of how we make it a fairer society – end poverty, no to austerity, anti-racism, anti-nuclear, and no scapegoating of immigrants, because this is an immigrant country. I’ve got Italian and Irish blood; I don’t know about the statistics, but most folk that live in Scotland have ancestors that came from Ireland, or Italy, or somewhere else.”

“I plan to be out whenever I can to campaign against independence. If I’ve got free time, I want to be out on the streets burning the shoe leather, getting our case forward to the people.”

“I decided at the beginning of 2014 that I couldn’t let this year go by without doing what I could for the Yes vote because I think it’s such an important decision for Scotland, and opportunity for Scotland. So, being an artist, I thought what better way to express yourself that through artwork?”

“Coming out here, and having to put up with the wind, it’s worth it because this is a big decision. People need to make a decision that’s the right decision, and we need to make sure they actually vote as well.”

“I felt ‘right, we’ve got six months to turn this around, and I’ve got six months to convince as many people as I know that this is the right thing to do for Scotland’. I wake up in the morning and I think ‘what can I do today to get the Yes message out?’”
