Lorna Ross

Glenrothes North, Leslie and Markinch

Scotland is an open and welcoming country with a long history of giving refuge to those fleeing war and persecution. The Scottish Green Party believes that all those who have been displaced by violence should be offered a welcome in Scotland, regardless of their age.

One of our local election candidates, Lorna Ross, has spent over two months in Greece in 2016, supporting refugees in various camps. She actively supports Syrian refugee families now living in Fife, and works closely with Green MSPs Ross Greer and Mark Ruskell to raise awareness of the crisis in parliament.

In September, Ross secured an amendment of the 'Scotland Welcomes 1,000 Refugees' motion in the Scottish Parliament, calling for asylum support services to be devolved to Scotland.
