The Radical Independence Campaign (RIC) has begun preparations to make a renewed, radical case for Scottish independence. Given the election of Trump, the chaotic handling of Brexit by an unelected Tory leader, and the ongoing crisis of the global economy, we believe our message is needed more than ever. RIC will argue for a People’s Independence.
RIC is a Scotland-wide, non-party-political campaigning organisation. We're active on issues of social justice, sustainability, democracy, equality and peace, and we welcome activists from all parties and none. This site is a hub for information and a tool for organising.
