Scotland looks set to leave the European Union, but not by choice.

We voted to Remain and in big numbers, but it wasn’t enough to outweigh votes in the rest of the UK seeking to drag Scotland out of the EU.

It’s not over though. We must preserve our relationship with Europe, and we can only do this if the political parties in Scotland show leadership and work together.

Scottish Greens are calling on Holyrood to examine and exhaust every option for continuing Scotland’s close ties with Europe.

Join us today in making that call.

The people of Scotland will be the only ones in Europe not to have a say on Brexit under the new timetable outlined by the First Minister, say the Scottish Greens.

Responding to a statement by Nicola Sturgeon, where the First Minister revealed that she will “not seek” to introduce immediate legislation for an independence referendum, Scottish Greens’ co-convener Patrick Harvie said there is now “no chance” that Scotland will avoid being dragged out of the EU and, likely the Single Market.

The people of Scotland must be given a choice over their future

27 June, 2017 - 08:00

The co-conveners of the Scottish Green Party have today (27 June) written to the First Minister, urging her to resist calls from opponents who have conceded to a Hard Brexit and who are against holding an independence referendum once the terms of the deal are known.

Ross Greer MSP, External Affairs spokesperson for the Scottish Greens, said today's announcement by the Prime Minister on EU citizens living in the UK is "mean-spirited".
