Guest Post by Jason Baird
Hello everybody. First, let me thank Munguin, the Republic and Tris for very kindly allowing National YES Registry the opportunity of this 'guest post'. It's greatly appreciated. [Note from Munguin: You're welcome, Jason.]
For those that have not yet heard of the National YES Registry project, our aim is simple. To build a collectively owned, mutually supportive, practical campaigning network from the existing grass-root activist groups still active across the country. We have been collecting members since just after the NO vote and already have 70 groups on the Registry.
Before you hopefully watch our film or visit our website to read the more detailed articles on the specifics of the project, please keep in mind that these are just our proposals and are being put forward as a starting point from which the group membership can build, adapt, develop and bring their own ideas to the table. The 'collective' element of this project is absolutely central and built into its very structure.
We are, therefore, desperately trying to get our film (trailer above) seen and message spread as widely as possible among that enormous audience keen to help the grass-root movement grow, develop and succeed.
It would be great if the readers of Munguin's Republic could take the time to view our project and assess our strategic goals. Then, if you like what we are trying to achieve, any contribution you could give us, or help in the task of spreading the word about the National YES Registry project and our crowd fund deadline would be greatly appreciated.
The full film is here.
As spreading the word about the YES Registry is becoming critical, I will also be doing another interview with Independence Live tomorrow night (linked here) (Thursday the 30th) at 7pm. So if anybody has any questions that they would like to ask about the project then please just submit them during the webcast and I will be happy to try and answer them while live on air. This will be a follow up to my previous interview with IndependenceLive alongside Ivan McKee (YES Registry from 13:09) so it would be great if you could join us.
Many thanks for taking the time to consider our project and if you find yourself in support, please spread the word, tweet, link and personally recommend our Indiegogo page as it has the full film showing on it as well as a full explanation of the project and links to both our website and Facebook page.
We are currently less than 4 days away from our Indiegogo crowd funding campaign deadline (11:59pm Sat the 1st August) and as yet only 37% funded. Hopefully, with your help, we can reach our goal by Saturday and save us having to pay the extra 5% in fees for missing the target.
