Does anyone know about this? I've tried to share the link on mastodon & for some reason it's not working. No idea why, so we're stuck with a screenshot (from the hub)

@james_tweedie ahh that worked perfectly thanks. I don't know why it never worked when I done it. I've shared things from the hub before with no issues 🤷‍♀️

@Humanistforindy @james_tweedie
Isnt there domething happening in Edinburgh on the 1st February ?

@CameronianBaby @james_tweedie I will try to get to that one but with work & everything it's hard. But I definitely can't make it to the one on Friday. Hopefully others will manage to attend.


@Humanistforindy @CameronianBaby @james_tweedie same, I highly doubt I can do Friday, unless a miracle happens but I have every intention of being there on the 1st.

@CameronianBaby @Humanistforindy @james_tweedie I don't work Friday's, but I have a crisis situation with First Born, I need to get that sorted before she screws up her entire future. Damn kids.

@EverFool @Humanistforindy @james_tweedie
I know its a Demo on the 1st, but isnt parliament closed, as in parliament not in session.
Which begs the Q, why then & not on day of FMQ's, at least that would get you some media coverage.

@CameronianBaby @Humanistforindy @james_tweedie I'm seeing it more as a wake, the day after being unceremoniously dragged out of the EU.

@EverFool @Humanistforindy @james_tweedie
I'd rather have it during FMQ's at least we'd get more than a passing remark by our media.
Not to keen on wakes myself.

@CameronianBaby @Humanistforindy @james_tweedie I do agree, that it's not the best timing for exposure, but it's a significant date to mark.

@EverFool @CameronianBaby @james_tweedie I think if we had it during FMQ's they would still ignore it. At least on a Saturday there's more chance of people attending.

@Humanistforindy @EverFool @james_tweedie
We'll never know until we try though will we. I actually think it's what we should be doing tbh.
We gain sfa sitting on our arses.
Imo we should be having demo's outside HR on days of FMQ's & on days of PMQ's outside Scot Office.
That's every FMQ's & PMQ's until we get our Indyref.
Put pressure on both govts.
The idea is it gathers momentum over a period of time.
Worst outcome it disnae & ppl get pissed off & give up.

@CameronianBaby @EverFool @james_tweedie yes that's true, anything is worth trying, I just have very low expectations of MSM coverage.

@Humanistforindy @CameronianBaby @james_tweedie yup, they will not be helpful on this. I was talking to my mum about how the drug death stats for Scotland are in fact unfair. She asked why SG doesn't point this out to everyone. I asked how? The BBC isn't exactly going to help them disseminate this info, are they?

@EverFool @Humanistforindy @james_tweedie
True, but sometimes they are their own worst enemy by not refuting lies from Unionist politicians. Many go past without comment to the contrary.

@EverFool @Humanistforindy @james_tweedie
Yes its a significant date, and just unfortunate it falls on a Saturday. Also because of the factor, will prob attract more ppl than it would a week day.
