On the march.

I MARCHED with the Yes Campaign in Edinburgh on Saturday because wherever there are undevolved powers, we have problems.

In Westminster, there is an absence of economic policies which look beyond next week.

As JFK said, "We live in an age where the instruments of war have outstripped the instruments of peace", but we continue to cosset weapons of mass destruction, and those based only in Scotland.

I'd rather see Trident money spent on education and medicine, in both of which we once led the world. I want to see Scotland not as a brokendown pauper and mendicant, as depicted by the Unionists, but as a strong, individual partner in the advancement of peaceful civilisation.

Joseph Miller, Dunfermline I WAS present at a miracle on Saturday afternoon in Edinburgh.

I was part of a rally which marched into Princess Street Gardens and completely filled up an area with an official capacity of 12,500 which then magically turned somehow into only 5000 people. How this miracle was achieved, I don't know.

David McEwan Hill, Sandbank, Argyll I'D like to point out the Yes Campaign rally in Edinburgh was not an SNP or anti-English event.

Everyone from all political persuasions were welcome to attend.

There were many speakers, all with different points of view and political backgrounds.

But all had only one aim - a better, fairer society, a Scotland free from the Westminster Government, with the power to make decisions for the betterment of the people in Scotland.
