Scottish Greens Co-Leader Patrick Harvie MSP has slammed the Scottish Government for “effectively subsidising the military operations of a dangerous far right regime.”

 

Questioning the Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity in parliament this afternoon, Mr Harvie said,

“Is it not offensive in a week when Scotland’s Kurdish community will be protesting outside the US Embassy at the withdrawal of its forces, leaving their comrades vulnerable to attack by Turkey. At a time when the US democratic procedures are investigating conflict of interest and a potential breach of the US constitution in relation to dealings with both Prestwick and Turnberry. Is it not offensive in that context for a Scottish publicly owned asset to be effectively subsidising the military operations of a dangerous far right regime.”

Nicola Sturgeon challenged to meet expectations of young people

Thu 19 Sep, 2019

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon must rise to meet the expectations of Scotland’s young people, the Scottish Greens have said.

At First Ministers Questions, co-leader Patrick Harvie raised the broken promises and failing case for the union, including the news that David Cameron was so desperate in 2014 he asked the Queen to intervene in the debate on independence.

People aged 16-20 have never had a say on independence. Patrick Harvie called for the more than 200,000 young people who have been too young to vote on Scotland’s future to be given a say.
