George Adam attended the launch of the campaign at the Fountainbridge cinema in Edinburgh. Speaking on the event George said:
‘I was absolutely delighted to attend the launch of the Yes campaign, and to be one of the first people to sign the Yes Declaration. Having campaigned for the people of Scotland to have total control of their affairs since the age of sixteen, it was an emotional event to think that we now have the chance to offer this to the people of our country.
‘It is obvious to me that we, the people who live in Scotland, are the best placed people to make the decisions which affect our country. Should we have nuclear weapons? How should benefits be distributed? What should we spend the income from our oil resources on? How should we treat our armed forces? These are all questions that we would be able to answer if we were an independent country’.
The Yes Declaration states
“I believe that it is fundamentally better for us all if decisions about Scotland’s future are taken by the people who care most about Scotland, that is, by the people of Scotland.
“Being independent means Scotland’s future will be in Scotland’s hands.
“There is no doubt that Scotland has great potential. We are blessed with talent, resources and creativity. We have the opportunity to make our nation a better place to live, for this and future generations. We can build a greener, fairer and more prosperous society that is stronger and more successful than it is today.
“I want a Scotland that speaks with her own voice and makes her own unique contribution to the world – a Scotland that stands alongside the other nations on these isles, as an independent nation.”
