Protection for the Scottish Landscape
We are the national voice for all those who seek real protection for the Scottish landscape as it is a key part of our national heritage, an important natural and economic asset and a valued amenity for residents and visitors alike. SAS is against the spin of the turbines, the spin of the developers and their lobbyists, and the spin of the Scottish Government.
Scotland Against Spin (SAS) was set up in mid-January 2013 by a small group of experienced campaigners who have been active at local and national levels for a number of years. It is one of our founding principles that SAS is independent of any political party, lobbying organisation, landowner or developer. SAS is entirely funded by donations from supporters, and all our personnel are volunteers.
A core team is responsible for the day-to-day operation of SAS, including recruiting of supporters; developing the website content; social media; liaising with the press and politicians; campaigning. The core team includes SAS Chair Graham Lang, Treasurer Simon Andrews, Secretary Philip Mould, Membership Secretary Sarah Burnside.
