Welcome.

Scotland stands on the precipice of making history; few countries ever have a chance to take their future into their own hands through a referendum. 

On Thursday 18th September 2014 Scots will face the question 'Should Scotland be an independent country?'. On thing is will be historic regardless of the result will be the fifteen hours between 7am and 10pm, when the polls are open. In those 15 hours voters will decide on a monumental issue; stay part of the 307 year old United Kingdom or separate from the UK to become an independent country; a member of the international family of nations. 

Scots will say 'I endorse Westminster' or 'I endorse Holyrood'; either way, the vote is itself historic, and the ground wars between the pro-UK 'Better Together' and pro-independence 'Yes Scotland' campaigns are well under way as the clock counts down to 7am on September 18th, when we will all face 
a major decision.

We will have just 15 hours to vote but the rest of our lives to live with the 
consequences of the result, whether No or Yes; it's a decision too big to not 
record or promote so this page will follow the local pro-independence 'Yes' 
campaign as they set out their case for Scottish independence.

Cumbernauld Media launches #IndyRef project with town's Yes campaign

CUMBERNAULD Media are pleased to announce today (11th May 2014) a new project with the local pro-independence campaign group, ‘Yes Cumbernauld’.

Our new collaboration with the town’s ‘Yes’ campaign means that, in the run-up to the independence referendum, you’ll be able to better understand the arguments being made by the campaign which advocates a Scottish split from the United Kingdom.

As part of the project, a new static page has been created at www.cumbernauld-media.com/yes; with the page including the social media details for the Yes Cumbernauld group, the latest political news in Cumbernauld, news from the Scottish Government and updates Yes Scotland, relating to the referendum. 

The new page will also include podcasts and videos in due course, as we invite local ‘Yes’ campaigners for their reasons for backing Scottish independence. The videos will then be uploaded to our Youtube channel and displayed on the ‘Yes Cumbernauld and Kilsyth’ page. Furthermore, activists at Yes Cumbernauld have now been given a blog space on the ‘Yes’ page which means campaigners will post regularly to the page and update us on their work ahead of the referendum.

Cumbernauld Media remains neutral on the question of whether or not Scotland should be an independent country, but this new project is aimed at helping you – the reader – to better understand the issues and matters surrounding the campaigns for and against Scottish independence. 

Scots will go to the polls on 18th September and answer the ‘Yes/No’ question, ‘Should Scotland be an independent country?’.
