Green Yes, the Scottish Green Party's campaign for a Yes vote in the independence referendum, is urging undecided voters in the Highlands and Moray to meet leading campaigner Patrick Harvie MSP.

Mr Harvie, the co-convener of the Scottish Greens, will be on the campaign trail in Aviemore, Elgin and Inverness this Friday and Saturday, urging voters to seize the opportunity to shape the future direction of Scotland.

On Friday night he is due to speak at the Yes Aviemore public meeting, on Saturday morning he will be in Elgin High Street meeting voters, and on Saturday afternoon he'll be in Inverness High Street supporting the Radical Independence stall.

Patrick Harvie MSP said:

"The referendum debate has sparked a revival of public engagement in politics and I'm looking forward to hearing from voters in Aviemore, Elgin and Inverness. The opportunity we have in September goes way beyond just making more decisions in Scotland - it's a chance to reconnect people with those decisions, and devolve powers within Scotland to local level.

"I'd urge voters in the North of Scotland to think carefully about the argument put forward by people like Danny Alexander that the UK pools and shares resources. We have children in poverty and families relying on food banks, while the government and the opposition pledge further austerity, commit to new nuclear weapons and continue to stuff a bloated House of Lords.

"On fairness and social justice it's clear that Westminster has failed. Independence is a chance for Scotland to show a different way is possible."
