Harvie welcomes Holyrood endorsement of People's Vote

Scottish Greens co-convener Patrick Harvie tonight (7 Nov) welcomed the vote at Holyrood to endorse a People's Vote, so people throughout the UK can have a final chance to cancel Brexit.

Last month, Scottish Green party members voted at their Autumn conference to back the policy of a People’s Vote, a campaign already being led by Caroline Lucas MP and the Green Party of England & Wales.

Patrick Harvie MSP said:

"Tonight's vote was very clear, with an outright majority of MSPs voting in favour of a People's Vote, and renewing the strong message that Scotland should not be dragged out of Europe against the clear public will. This adds to the many local authorities which have backed the campaign, including Glasgow City Council last week. The case is becoming irresistible for this final chance to stop the mess and cancel Brexit.

"Scottish Green Party members stand ready to campaign with our Green colleagues in the other nations of the UK, and with people across party lines for a People’s Vote.”
