TOMMY SHERIDAN's column: INDEPENDENCE DAY.

Byline: TOMMY SHERIDAN

I WORE a "Close Dungavel" T-shirt to the launch meeting of the Independence Convention in Inverness last Friday.

I also displayed my Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament badge on my jacket lapel.

Last year, I wore a football jersey to another SNP fringe meeting to raise money for the homeless charity Shelter.

And these symbols are all connected.

In an independent Scotland, there would be no nuclear weapons, we would eradicate homelessness through sustained investment and the shame of imprisoning innocent men, women and children at the Dungavel centre would cease.

That's the unity around independence which brings us all together.

I'm for an independent socialist republic in Scotland. Others have a different vision, but unity around independence itself must be built in every corner of our small country.
