THIS weekend’s Sunday National includes a pull-out poster to support and promote the grassroots Chain of Freedom on Saturday, October 14.

With under a week to go, organisers are estimating approximately 49,000 Yes activists are to line the Forth and Clyde canal, which has been split into sections from Bowling to Falkirk.

Yessers from Sweden, the Netherlands and France are all making the journey to Scotland to take part in the Chain of Freedom, and international media are also heading over to capture the event.

Sunday National editor Stewart Ward said: “It’s so important to support these events, and what we can assist the Yes movement with is visibility – whether that’s on the day or in the run up to the event.

“A reader sent in the fantastic request for a poster that could be displayed in windows, posted online, and that could be taken along to the chain to ensure as many as possible see the event is happening.”

Organisers are urging potential participants to register at the event to ensure health and safety at the event runs smoothly.

On the dedicated website for the event, it states: “Health and safety for this event is like no other held so far, due to the location, and number of people. We MUST adhere to this for Scottish Canals, council areas, Police Scotland, your own safety, and the success of the event.

“Therefore, we require accurate numbers, 1 metre = approx. 1 person and we need them now, so that all planning can be undertaken.”
