From Catalonia to Calton – with Valentina Servera Clavell

Opposition to Scotland’s place in the United Kingdom has existed, in one for, or another, since its founding in 1707, often with anti-imperialist sentiment at its heart. The SNP were founded to campaign against it in 1934 and grew with the collapse of empire in the 1950s, and 60s, but only in the 1970s did […]
