To all Scottish Nationalists & Ultra-Nationalists.

It has come to the attention of Siol nan Gaidheal that directly due to anti-Scottish racism, distorted media attention and thinly-disguised Labour government propaganda and misinformation, many Scots nationalists are beginning to feel that we are not receiving a "fair deal" and that this government intends, by one means or another, to deny the democratic wishes of the Scottish people, thereby deliberately inciting our people to take the law into their own hands. This of course would be an ideal situation for the Labour government to act to prevent civil unrest and use this as an example of how Scotland would fare if it votes to be independent.

Siol nan Gaidheal would urge the men and women of Scotland to remain calm under this severe and sustained provocation. The time for action will be when electing those who will act in Scotland's best interests in the forthcoming Scottish Parliamentary elections.

It is our sincerely held wish that those elections are fair and that there is no governmental interference in the democratic process taking place.

We in Siol nan Gaidheal are convinced that the Scottish People are now awakening to "New Labour"'s strategies in and for Scotland and will vote accordingly. Independence is closer than ever before, therefore we again urge our people not to fall for this shameful ruse and not to rise to the bait of civil unrest and disobedience.

The time for such action may come, but for the present please remain calm.

Let us for now use the ballot and not the bullet.
