Common Weal Perth & Kinross

We are a friendly and supportive group of people, hailing from various political parties and none whatsoever, dedicated to a Scotland that puts all of us first. We meet for discussion, enthusiastic debate and peaceful arguing, aimed at exploring the topics and ideas that are important to a fair and independent Scotland.

Common Weal Perth & Kinross Group, which was launched in April 2015, meets every week on a Wednesday, usually at Blend Coffee Lounge in Old High Street Perth.

We are a friendly and supportive group of people, hailing from various political parties and none whatsoever, dedicated to a Scotland that puts all of us first. We meet for discussion, enthusiastic debate and peaceful arguing, aimed at exploring the topics and ideas that are important to a fair and independent Scotland. From time to time, we hold slightly more structured study evenings, where one of us leads a discussion on a specific topic, such as our most recent - Citizenship.

Roughly once a month, or as the opportunity presents itself, we invite a speaker with particular knowledge or expertise, or show a film, or stage a public debate. Some recent examples include Dr. Craig Dalziel on “Currency Options for an Independent Scotland”, Ruth Watson of Keep Scotland the Brand, the film “Iceland” with Lesley Riddoch, and George Kerevan on “Catalonia Reborn”.  This is just a wee sample of our events, and we always warmly welcome new people, ideas, and speakers. These events often happen in other venues in Perth, and in Kinross, whenever more space or a big screen is required.

All events and meetings are free, and there’s no charge to join. We are, however, famous for our Orange Bucket, into which we invite those attending special events to drop a donation on their way out if they wish. The contents of the Orange Bucket support local groups and causes, frequently the cause of the speaker at the event. We work alongside other groups to co-ordinate action and support campaigns.
