What do SFI members do?
Campaign: for an independent socialist Scotland, but many SFI members are active in other campaigns and parties too
Solidarity: using SFI to build support for the campaigns and issues of other groups
Local: building the campaign locally is a great way to strengthen the case for an independent socialist Scotland
International: linking up with socialists and social justice campaigns from England, Wales, Northern Ireland and across the world.
How are decisions made in SFI?
Grassroots: members will take part in electing a 6-person team to take the network forward for the first six months
Forum: ongoing challenges and opportunities will be discussed at open monthly meetings where everyone has a vote.
Rules: there are as few as possible to allow for as much discussion as possible – it can take a while!
Working groups: these are self-organised interest groups to develop policy and practice, join as many or few as you want
Goodwill: with a democratic, open political culture and a fund of goodwill, SFI relies entirely on its members.
What about the Yes movement?
Diverse: we are committed to contributing to a broad Yes movement that includes a strong socialist voice
Collaboration: working alongside others in the Yes movement to help build support for an independent Scotland
Links: joining with like-minded activists, raising the socialist banner to ensure a post-independent Scotland for the many, not just the richest elite.
