Free Hugs Scotland

We take the Free Hugs campaign all around Scotland.

After discovering a version of the Free Hugs video that some people did in my local city, I thought it might be fun to take it all over Scotland. I filmed the guys in Aberdeen and we went on a long day trip to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Perth.

We witnessed exactly what Juan Mann experienced, the police asked us to leave but the public stood there and defended us.

The music was written especially for the video by me, James Provan (GiR2007). Filmed and edited by me also.

The main guy in the video is John -

When we gave out free hugs like this I noticed no one would partake until
they saw OTHERS willing to be hugged. Our "governments" and "schools" along
with Hollywood have been VERY successful in turning us into lemmings. I
guess people are terrified that huggers may have HIV or be wearing shoe

Humans and their emotions. They use them to better their species and to
harbor hatred and fear of their kind. Fascinating creatures.

Author glasgow1234 ( ago)
In May 2012, the YES campaign for an independent Scotland was launched and
a declaration was made and is calling for at least one million Scots to
sign showing their support. If you live in Scotland and support
independence for your country then please visit yesscotland . net /
declaration to sign. If you are not in Scotland, don't worry, you can still
sign the declaration but will not be counted into the one million. Give
this a thumbs up if you have signed and say YES to Scottish Independence

as in the UK there is no right to self-determination of peoples?? cameron
is a Nazi like bush .. is time that people are free ""

Author dario gonzalez ( ago)
No more arrogance, arrogance, imperialism and colonialism .. people must be
free "" "free scotland, iralanda, malvinas, and all countries that are
illegally occupied by United States and England ...

Author dario gonzalez ( ago)
I guess it's a joke I of England .. "Self-determination of peoples" ".. the
Scottish, Irish do not think so just in case" "is not a right that they may
have according to cameron ... and what happened to the inhabitants of the
island of Diego Garcia ... they do not had the right to self-determination
.. wanted to be British and were expelled this fall .. with the lie of
self-determination was leased to British .. United States for 50 years ...

Author yodaistheone ( ago)
What I love the most about the "free hugs" videos is that everyone smiles
when getting a hug. Whatever country it is in the people always smile.
Isn't that what the world needs right now with all the doom and gloom going
around? All it takes is some contact with a stranger and it all seem
better. Thanks for making these videos made me smile as well.
Thanks from South Africa.
