THE GREAT PAIN ROBBERY

The following is the news release that accompanies the Reclaiming the Rights Paper from Salvo that was also published today and is available to read on this website.

Scottish National Congress Steering Group Press Release:


Embargoed until 12:01 am November 27th
The Great Pain Robbery


Commenting on the revelations contained in the Salvo paper Iain Lawson speaking on behalf of the Liberation Movement and as Chair of the Scottish National Congress Steering Group said “these discoveries are hugely important and will have a big impact on the fight for Independence going forward.


As Scots face a winter with many having to choose between eating or heating, the realisation that London has been involved in long term fraud and deception that has allowed them to steal hundreds of billions of pounds in assets (natural resources), from the rightful owners, the Scottish people, will cause great anger in Scotland.


How appropriate that in the same week that England’s Supreme Court announced that Scotland is not a colony, while at the same time ruling we had no rights to vote on our own Constitutional future without London’s permission, we are revealing today the fraud these colonial masters have been inflicting on Scotland for decades. A fraud that explains why Scotland remains poor despite discovering vast oil and natural gas wealth. We are once again witnessing the same rip off of our assets in terms of renewables as happened with our vast oil wealth.”


Concluding Mr Lawson said “ We hope the Scottish Government, armed with the proof of this extensive fraud will act and join with the Liberation Movement to challenge this fraud in the International Court. But in any event, the first job of the Scottish National Congress, now nearing its formal launch, will be preparing the case to take it to the International Court of Justice. We will seek a ruling, that this colonial style appropriation of the assets of the sovereign territory of Scotland is fraudulent and clearly illegal, and a remedy in terms of a legal requirements in line with international law for compensation.


Once the Scottish Liberation Movement reaches a substantial membership, around 100 thousand, and achieves recognition by the UN, we shall do what the Scottish Government cannot do, as a legislative arm of Westminster Government in Scotland. We shall seek proper remedy directly in the International Court to end this injustice and theft of our national resources.

If Scots want to end these flagrant injustices they need to join Liberation.Scot to enable our application for formal recognition as the legitimate Liberation Movement in Scotland to be approved as quickly as possible.


The People’s voice must be heard and recognised. Scotland’s People are sovereign and it is time for that sovereignty to be upheld.


Excerpt from ‘Reclaiming the Rights of the Sovereign Territorial Nation of Scotland’
We therefore call on our fellow Scots and the international community to support the campaign of the Scottish Liberation Movement to restore the rights of the sovereign territorial nation of Scotland under international law, to remove the ‘administrative’ control of the British state from the assets owned by the Scottish people and to obtain for this nation the restitution owed to them by the British state for its fraudulent appropriation of Scotland’s natural resources over many decades and of the benefits that should have accrued to the Scottish people as the lawful and exclusive owners of these resources.


NOTE
It should be noted that the earlier paper from Salvo highlighting the Claim of Right 1689 had a huge impact on the debate about Scotland’s future. The COR now forms a prominent role in the Independence debate, led to a Parliamentary debate on Independence and was responsible for the creation and growth of two new related Independence organisations both of which grow rapidly and already involve many thousands of members. Liberation targets 100,000 members which will enable recognition from the United Nations.
BOTH Salvo and Liberation are strictly non party political and contain members from many parties and even more from none.
