n Scotland, a remarkable popular movement, the campaign for independence,
is heading towards it decisive test. On September 18, a referendum is being
held on whether the country will remain part of the “United Kingdom”.

To better understand the surge in pro-independence sentiment over the last
weeks of the campaign, *Green Left Weekly*'s European correspondent *Dick
Nichols*spoke with *Alister Black*, editor of the Scottish independent
Marxist review *Frontline*

Black, a member of the Scottish Socialist Party
