Hope Over Fear supports and will help to promote all the grassroots Indy Movement events designed to build support for IndyRef2 and victory for independence in that 2nd referendum. Hope Over Fear supports and works alongside All Under One Banner, Forward as One, Scotland Land Of The Brave Saor Alba One Clan One Goal and scores of YES Groups to strengthen the grassroots Indy Movement. We firmly believe Unity in our movement is key to victory in securing our independence. The cause of independence is bigger than any one group, individual or political party. The cause should come first at all times. We call on the Indy Family to support and attend the All Under One Banner marches in Inverness (28th July), Dundee (18th August), and Forward As One in Dunfermline (1st September). Our own annual Rally takes place in Freedom Square on 15th September this year from 11am and will welcome the participants on the March for Independence One Clan One goal in Glasgow that day. Our event will as usual mix free musical entertainment with powerful speeches in support of independence. This year several elected MSPs will address the rally alongside senior councillors and grassroots organisers. Among the speakers confirmed so far are Alex Neil, SNP MSP for Airdrie and Shotts, Sandra White, SNP MSP for Glasgow Kelvin, Gil Paterson, SNP MSP for Clydebank and Milngavie and Chris McEleny, SNP Councillor and Inverclyde Council Group leader and recent SNP Deputy Leadership candidate. These speakers and many others will address the rally sometime during the day which will run from 11am to 5pm and will be supported by 15 different musical artists and bands, all committed to the cause of independence. So far, the bands and artists who have agreed to perform on the day include The Graham Brown Band, Kevin Gore, Ted Christopher Amanda Brown (?), Pete Scally, Brooke Coventry, Bobby Nicholson, Anastasiya and The Carlton Jug Band. Nearer to the day Hope Over Fear will publish a timetable assigning specific time-slots for each of the speakers and performers. Please follow our Facebook Page and in the meantime do all you can to support the planned grassroots Indy Events before September 15th.

We at Hope over Fear are proud to be able to offer a platform to a vast array of talented Scottish performers and are honoured that 12yr old Annasaisyar has accepted our invitation to showcase her talents at this years annual rally in Freedom Square on 15th September.
Anna, from Stevenston, Ayrshire played sax in a band and unfortunately broke her wrist just prior to a local talent competition.
Not to be deterred she decided to enter as a vocalist and amazingly won the competition. Two weeks later she entered the Ayrshire music festival and achieved 2nd place and went on to perform alongside Mick Hargan at his song and supper clubs in king Tutts and the amethyst. She will be the featured act @ King Tutts on 15th July and will be supporting a German Rock Band @ the Classic Grand on 22nd July. She is also the featured act in King Tutts on the 15th July.
With support from her family she writes songs that are emotional, hard hitting and thought provoking.
We hope you will join us on September 15th to show Annastaiyar the support she deserves.
After all our fight for freedom is ultimately for the young people.

Returning to the Hope over Fear stage on September 15th for your entertainment will be the Tartan Army favourite Ted Christopher.

Ted is one of Scotland's finest performers. He is a well travelled and extremely versatile singer songwriter who is equally at home whether singing heart felt originals to a concert audience, belting out Scottish favourites to the Tartan Army or playing some of his huge pop/rock repertoire to a packed dance floor.

Un-phased by any size of audience, he played to 750,000 people on The Mall in Washinton DC. A week later there were 12 in Cowie Miners Welfare. How's that for a quick reality check? and they were both great gigs.

Ted has been involved in the Scottish live music scene since he was fifteen. He is proud to be a native of The Royal and Ancient Burgh of Stirling (Stirling is now a city but he much prefers the previous description of his hometown) and was born and raised a mere claymores length from Stirling Castle and The National Wallace Monument.

############ JIMI "THE PIPER" McRae ##############

Join us next Saturday in offering a huge welcome back to the Hope over Fear stage for Jimi The Piper.

Jimi, just back from a tour to China has released a new album called 'Alive in China' on Bandcamp featuring new material and live tracks recorded in China which is available to listen to and download here: https://jimithepipermcrae.bandcamp.com/

A promotional video has also been released on You Tube for quirky opening track 'Beijing sat nav girl', the 'voice' being recorded during a taxi ride downtown to Tienanmen Square, Beijing, February 2017 when Jimi was in the city performing at a week long festival celebrating Chinese New Year.

Jimi said "Once back in Scotland I was checking out some film footage I took on my Canon Powershot camera and I was so struck with how appealing the Chinese sat nav voice sounded that I decided to build a track around the female voice using traffic noises also recorded in the footage and Chinese sounding loops and music progressions which I had been playing around with at home."

The result was 'Beijing sat nav girl' 85bpm.

Jimi adde d"It's a bit of a departure from my usual stuff perhaps. I let some friends hear it and they were a bit surprised but quite impressed. They enjoyed it. I was also fortunate to have gleamed some live recordings of my piping performances in Beijing and Kunming where I speak a wee bit of Mandarin. 'Put it all out there' they advised, so I have."

Jimi has a growing fan and friend base in China. In October last year he made his fifth musical piping trip to the Peoples' Republic after being invited to perform at a week long harvest festival in the SW city of Kunming.

Join us next Saturday for some piping like you've never heard before.

#TieOurRopesTogether
#UseTheMandate

We are honored to announce, the legend that is Scottish folk singer Alistair McDonald, has accepted our invitation to perform for your entertainment, at this year's annual rally in Freedom Square.
Alastair is a Scottish folk musician probably most famous for his recordings of Jim MacLean's folk songs, such as The Barras and The massacre of Glencoe, but also for some humorous songs, such as the jazz comedy song Sam the skull, about a Glasgow cat.
He has recorded songs written by Robert Burns but has also written songs himself (Culloden's Harvest, The Village Green at Gretna), and reworked traditional songs (The Bell Rock Light, Mingulay Boat Song). He has toured every state in the US (except Hawaii and Alaska), Canada, Denmark, Thailand and several more countries although not much is spoken of him in media. Wonder why eh! Much of his work in recent years has been political song, usually socialist and/or republican, such as his tribute song to John MacLean. Its no surprise that he supports Scottish independence.

We are delighted to announce, dedicated activists and campaigners Bernie McCreadie and Lynn Cameron will be speaking at the rally.
Bernie, campaign manager for Medicinal Cannabis Reform Scotland who battles with multiple auto immune disease and central nervous system disease and Lynn, campaign assistant manager and terminal brain cancer fighter/survivor, both believe as many others do, that in an independent Scotland medicinal cannabis would be made available to ease, and in some cases cure various ailments that people suffer from.
The wastemonster government gave licence to produce and export 2.1 tonnes of cannabis in 2016 yet it is illegal in this country to use cannabis even for medicinal purposes. This is scandalous. We say Free The Weed.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bobby always raises our spirits and makes us smile with his great lyrics and musical talents. Looking forward to hearing him again in Freedom Square on 15th September #CarpeDiem #HopeOverFear

This years annual Hope over Fear event is shaping to be bigger and better than previously and we are delighted to announce, Snp Msp Alex Neil will address this years rally.
In the first reshuffle of the SNP Government since it took office in 2007, Alex was appointed as the Minister for Housing and Communities in February 2009.
In 2011 he defeated Karen Whitefield in the Airdrie and Shotts constituency, gaining a majority of 2001, a 5.5% swing from Labour to SNP and was promoted to the Scottish Cabinet on 19 May 2011 by Alex Salmond to become the new Cabinet Secretary for Infrastructure and Capital Investment after the SNP's landslide win in the 2011 Scottish election.
He then went on to take up the post of Cabinet Secretary for Health and Wellbeing in September 2012.
After Nicola Sturgeon became First Minister of Scotland in November 2014, Alex Neil was appointed to the new post of Cabinet Secretary for Social Justice, Communities and Pensioners' Rights.
We hope you will join us, giving Alex a huge welcome in Freedom Square on September 15th.

############### ANDY McBRIDE ################
############## AKA "PANIC ANCHOR" ############

"Imagine a bluesy Lou Reed and you're half way there." - Glasgow Living
Join us on Saturday in Freedom Square to offer a huge welcome to Andy McBride.

Andy is a songwriter originally from Glasgow, Scotland who started in early 2014 under the previous moniker of 'Panic Anchor' and quickly became a mainstay of the local and national songwriter scene. Now playing under his own name 2018 has seen him complete a debut full record and a heavy touring schedule to support its release.

Comparisons are often made to Springsteen, Waits and Earle but always within his own Glasgwegian growl - a truly original voice that can soar to the height of a howl then instantly drop to a raspy whisper. A ferocious performer who prioritises playing live shows above all - an experience to remember.
​
Andy has toured Europe extensively already including many self funded UK and European tours, festivals and other appearances. Andy has also completed national support tours including an 18 show German support tour for 13 Crowes in November 2017.

################ MOHAMMAD N ASIF ################

Mohammad N Asif came to the UK in the year 2000 seeking sanctuary from the brutal Taliban regime.
In only his second week he started campaigning for the rights of Asylum seekers who were badly treated and discriminated by the Home office.
In 2001 he, along with others co-founded Glasgow Refugees Action Group. He feels that after Americas 9/11 happened everyone of Afghan origin was perceived to be a terrorist in the West.
In 2001 he founded the Scottish Afghan Society which explained the true story of the American and British never ending illegal war in Afghanistan.
Since 2000 he has been involved with fighting for the rights of asylum seekers and refugees. 
More than 100,000 innocent Afghans have been killed since 9/11 for the lies of Bush and Blair.
Mohammad said "Scotland is a rich and beautiful country. The people of this proud nation deserve better and have every right to choose their own destiny.
An independent Scotland will not illegally invade other countries and I am sure it's people are more than capable of making better decisions for their future generations.
I and my family are more than proud to be a small part of this great proud nation."
Join us on Saturday to welcome Mohammad once more to Hope over Fear.

As special treat for the weans tomorrow, and the big weans of course we will have an appearance from SPORT, Scotlands Unicorn.

Obviously for health and safety reasons Sport will have to retract his horn for the visit although we reckon he'll still be up for some selfies with the kids, big and wee.

Hope Over Fear Rally organisers would like to thank everyone who has so far contributed to our Crowd Funding appeal for Saturday's rally.
Without such financial support the event simply couldn't take place.

We specifically want to thank THE PROCLAIMERS for their magnificent donation of £1,000 via their record company. It is very much appreciated. 

We also like to thank All Under One Banner for their donation and the hundreds of other Indy Family members who have contributed. 

We are still a few hundred pounds short of paying for all the stage, Pa, Big Screen, barriers and other costs but through bucket collections and sales of Hope Over Fear merchandise we are confident we will meet all the bills. Thank you everyone. We are on the road to independence.

Please note the HoF Merchandise stall will be situated to the left of the stage.

Looking forward to hearing from Frank McGarvey on Saturday. He says he is no longer afraid to stand up and speak out for Independence #Legend
