The line-up of speakers has been confirmed. Unfortunately Eric Canning of the

however he passes on his best wishes and requests to be kept informed of future 
events. The good news is that we still have a quality line-up of speakers 
(below) on a range of topics. Shuna Island has been transformed due to the work of 
volunteers, to paint, furnish, install sound eqpt, stage, lighting, bar and 


All members and supporters are urged to make the effort to attend and ensure 
that the Scottish Republican Convention gets off to a great start. Anyone

Why I Choose Red
by Hugh MacDiarmid

I fight in red for the same reasons
That Garibaldi chose the red shirt
- Because a few men in a field wearing red
Look like many men - if there are ten you will think 
There are a hundred; if a hundred
You will believe them a thousand.
And the colour of red dances in the enemy’s rifle sights,
And his aim will be bad - But best reason of all,
A man in a red shirt can neither hide nor retreat.
