Workers Hammer No. 226

Spring 2014



In the article “Union bashing at Grangemouth”, Workers Hammer no 225, Winter 2013-2014, we stated: “We uphold the right of self-determination for Scotland and Wales, which means the right to form independent states. As such, we defend the democratic right of the Scots to choose whichever option they want in the independence referendum, but we do not advocate either a ‘yes’ or a ‘no’ vote and are indifferent to the outcome.” The referendum does not pose an issue of principle and we are not taking a stand for or against independence. But we are not indifferent to the outcome, nor to the many questions it will surely pose.
