17,500 people back the Yes Declaration

Yes Scotland is the fastest growing campaign in Scotland, with 17,500 people now backing the Yes Declaration and over 4,000 volunteers signed up to help in every part of the country.

Yesterday saw the launch of a new volunteer pack, the Declaration Kit, which contains copies of the Yes Declaration. This means you can help the campaign grow even faster by getting the people you know to sign up to the core statement at the heart of the Yes campaign. You can get your copy of the pack here.

And, Yes Scotland supporters are out across the country today, with reports already coming in of successful events in Edinburgh, at the Meadows Festival, and Prestwick.

Today, we've published a couple more pages in the Get the Facts section of the website. We look at some of the costs and savings of moving to an independent government and how an independent Scotland will be governed. You can also learn more about the finances of an independent Scotland in this section of the site.

If you haven't signed already, you can put your name to the Yes Declaration here.
