Scottish Greens' motions on Climate Emergency and Article 50 for debate Wednesday 27th March 2019.

Green Motions for Wednesday 27 March 2019

The Scottish Greens have called two votes in Holyrood on the two most important issues we face: revoking article 50 and urgent action on the climate emergency. The Motions are below. You can help by emailing or emailing your MSP and asking them to support them. Find out who your MSPs are here.  

Climate emergency

That this Parliament recognises that the world is entering a climate emergency and supports the goal of keeping global warming to 1.5oC; supports the actions of the 1.5mn young people around the world and in Scotland who absented themselves from school to demand urgent and radical action; recognises the moral duty on the Parliament to act in the interests of the young, future generations, and communities on the front line of climate breakdown around the world; calls on the Scottish Government to recognise that the policy of maximum economic recovery of oil and gas is incompatible with addressing the climate emergency, and to introduce a legislative ban on the extraction of unconventional oil and gas reserves


Revoking Article 50

That the Parliament commends the more than five million signatories to the UK Parliament petition to revoke Article 50, and believes that unless the UK secures a sufficient extension to the Brexit process to organise and conduct a People’s Vote with an option to remain in the EU, the UK’s notification under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union should be revoked immediately.
