Labour for independence are “a political organisation which supports a “YES” vote in the Scottish independence referendum. We are working within the Labour party to promote the benefits that independence would bring to the people of Scotland”. This item was collected at the 2013 March and Rally for Independence.

The second March and Rally for Scottish Independence was held on the 21st September 2013. Supporters of a yes vote in the 2014 referendum rallied in the High Street on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh for midday and then marched to Calton Hill via North Bridge and Princes Street. At Calton Hill they held a rally where they were addressed by speakers such as Alex Salmond, Nicola Sturgeon, Dennis Canavan, Alan Grogan, Blair Jenkins, Hardeep Singh Koli and Elaine C. Smith.
