‘Oor Vyce’ campaign

A NEW campaign has been launched demanding official recognition for the Scots Language. Oor Vyce brings together entertainers, writers, academics and political campaigners who want the Scottish Parliament to pass a law similar to the 2005 Gaelic Language Act to promote Scots. They also want an official body, similar to Bord na Gaidhlig, to raise the status and profile of Scots. The campaign had its “soft launch” on social media yesterday, ahead of the main launch after lockdown is lifted.

The social media campaign is running at facebook.com/oorvycetwitter.com/oorvyce and instagram.com/oorvyce

NOTE Interesting that the Morning Star, the English left-wing paper that marched shoulder-to-shoulder with the Tories and British nationalist fascists to oppose Scottish independence in 2014, chose to cover this campaign.

Plea to put Scottish tongue on a par with the Gaelic

A CAMPAIGN was launched today to see the Scots language officially recognised and given its own oversight board north of the border. Oor Vyce, a collective of artists, academics and campaigners, wants the Scottish Parliament to pass a law similar to the 2005 Gaelic Language Act to promote “the Mither Tongue.”
