EP. 4: CHANGING THE SYSTEM


ON SCOTTISH INDEPENDENCE

Valentina (20) and Alex (25)  are on the forefront of a new wave of the Scottish independence movement. Young people in Scotland are more determent than ever to leave the ‘opressive’ United Kingdom, a movement that has been fueled by  Brexit and the Covid-crisis. Recent polls show that 55% of Scots now want to leave the UK, 70 % of which are between 16 and 34. On This episode of Changing the System, Laura travels to Glasgow to hear what these young Scots have to say. The episode touches on British identity, globalism versus Brexit, and how the British empire hasn’t only left its traces overseas, but also on its own shores.
