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.

UK election is whim of dangerous hard-right party

18 April, 2017 - 12:43

The Scottish Greens say today's announcement by the Prime Minister of her intention to press for a UK General Election on 8 June shows that Scotland continues to suffer at the hands of a hard right Tory party.

Co-convener Patrick Harvie MSP said:

"Brexit is a mess of the Tory party's making, and they are calling this election for much the same self-serving reasons as the EU referendum itself. Since June they have also consistently ignored voters in Scotland and elsewhere who chose to stay in Europe and the single market. 

50 politicians from across Europe say independent Scotland welcome as full member of EU

9 April, 2017 - 10:19

50 politicians from across Europe have responded to Theresa May’s triggering of Article 50 by signing a letter claiming that an independent Scotland will be “most welcome as a full member of the European Union”. 

Harvie raises Westminster power grab concerns at First Minister's Questions

30 March, 2017 - 13:12

Green co-convener Patrick Harvie today used First Minister’s Questions to raise concerns about the UK government’s failure to “entrench” the permanence of the Scottish Parliament and its intention to “hoard” powers repatriated from Brussels.

The Glasgow MSP reminded the chamber that the Scottish people voted in favour of a Scottish Parliament, by 74%, in 1997 and urged the First Minister to ensure that the Westminster government does not “bypass” Holyrood in relevant sections of the Repeal Bill.

Triggering of Article 50 "economic and social vandalism"

29 March, 2017 - 14:13

Ross Greer MSP, External Affairs spokesperson for the Scottish Greens, today (29 March) described the triggering of Article 50 by the Prime Minister as "economic and social vandalism" and “signalling the end of the UK”.

Yesterday, the Scottish Parliament agreed a Green amendment that a fresh referendum on independence is needed once the Brexit deal is known and before the UK has left the EU, and that the franchise should include sixteen and seventeen year olds and EU citizens living in Scotland.

Greens vote for Scotland’s right to decide on Brexit

28 March, 2017 - 17:05

The Green MSPs have voted for Scotland to have its say over Brexit, giving the Scottish Government a mandate to seek permission from the UK government to hold an independence referendum.

As well as voting for a “section 30” order, MSPs backed a Green amendment calling for European Union citizens and 16 and 17 year olds to have the ability to vote in the forthcoming independence referendum, a privilege denied to them in the 2016 EU referendum.
