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/oorvyce, twitter.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.
