Welcome to Independence Live. We are a collective of citizen livestreamers, mostly based in Scotland, who produce live video at events, which the mainstream media will not cover. We have livestreamed over 1000 events since November 2013 and all for FREE. Our complete video archive can be found here. Our success and continued growth is down to the dedication of our volunteers and the support of our viewers. We cover political, social and cultural events and news stories in Scotland but also across the globe using Skype livestreams with our foreign citizen correspondents.

Views expressed on our broadcasts do not necessarily reflect the views of the Independence Live collective nor should our coverage of any event, individual or organisation be taken as an endorsement.

Over the coming months RIC will be co-hosting “The Independence Lectures” in association with Pluto Press and Wordpower books. This series of public events will be addressed by renowned academics, authors and thinkers, who will introduce radical arguments on a variety of topics related to Scotland’s constitutional debate. Through this series, we will explore every aspect of the independence debate, introducing detailed discussions on economics, history, society and culture. Our aim is to facilitate an in depth discussion on the meaning of independence, and its relationship with social change. http://radicalindependence.org/index.php/2014/02/21/the-independence-lectures-in-association-with-pluto-press-and-wordpower-books/ The first in the series is with internationally renowned author Tariq Ali. Born in Pakistan, Tariq Ali became one of Britain’s top left-wing intellectuals in the 1960s when he led student opposition to the Vietnam War. In this period, he befriended John Lennon, Yoko Ono, and Malcolm X, and was the alleged inspiration for "Street Fighting Man" by the Rolling Stones. He has remained one of the UK’s most influential commentators and authors. Now, he is in Scotland to argue that a Yes vote will benefit the socialist cause UK- and world-wide. Tariq is a member of the editorial board of the journals New Left Review and Sin Permiso, and regularly contributes to The Guardian, CounterPunch, and the London Review of Books. He is the author of numerous books, including Bush in Babylon (2003), Conversations with Edward Said (2005), The Clash of Fundamentalisms: Crusades, Jihads and Modernity (2002), Street-Fighting Years: An Autobiography of the Sixties (2005), A Banker for All Seasons (2007) The Obama Syndrome (2010) and On History: Tariq Ali and Oliver Stone in Conversation (2011).
