The Declaration of Calton Hill was signed by members of Democracy for Scotland 100 days after the 1992 General Election. It symbolised the group’s commitment to work to ‘secure a democratic and accountable system of government in Scotland’. Democracy for Scotland was a non-party political organisation. Following the Conservative Party victory in the 1992 General Election Democracy for Scotland maintained a constant vigil on Regent Road in Edinburgh near to old the Royal High School. This site was seen as the natural home of a Scottish Parliament. The vigil ended following the yes vote in the devolution referendum of 11th September 1997.
