6. Be visible
If you’re out campaigning for Scottish independence with your fellow activists, take some pictures and share them online using the hashtags #indyref2, #ScottishIndependence and #ItsTime.
Share your reasons for backing independence, or if you’ve switched from No to Yes, share your story online with the hashtag #NoToYes to build momentum.

7. Watch and share our videos
We regularly produce informative videos setting out key arguments for independence and rebutting claims from unionist politicians.
Check them out in the Videos section – and share them with 5 friends or family.
It’s an easy way to expand our reach, cut through to those undecided, and make a real impact.
🌍 For countries of Scotland’s size, independence works.
🏴 With the powers of independence, they built happier, fairer and wealthier societies than the UK – so #WhyNotScotland?
