Common Weal
 

Common Weal is a ‘think and do tank’ campaigning for social and economic equality in Scotland.

For 40 years Scotland has suffered from ‘me first’ politics – and we all came second. Politics has made a few extremely wealthy and left the rest suffering from low pay, insecurity, declining public services and fragmented communities.

Campaign Groups

In addition to Scottish registered political parties there are also a number of campaign groups.

All Under One Banner

Our aim is to support Scottish independence. We do that by organising public marches and rallies. Marches and rallies take place in towns and cities across Scotland every year. We also work with other like-minded groups.

Believe in Scotland

A new website and initiative that aims to answer the questions people have about Scottish independence in a fair and easy to understand format.  

Politicians, newspapers and campaigners make claims and counter claims every day. We will do our utmost to present the answers you need to the questions you have in a simple and matter of fact way, with links to the sources of evidence we cite.  

Our articles should all take less than a few minutes to read and you can comment on them and get involved in the discussion. The comments will be moderated as we want to be a safe place for people to chat.

Pensioners For Independence
