It’s clear that only the Scottish Greens stand for a Scotland that puts workers first with our own seat at the European table Patrick Harvie

Responding to reports that Scottish Labour will oppose an referendum on Scotland’s future for the next six years, Scottish Greens co-leader Patrick Harvie said:

“Scottish Labour have their fingers in their ears at a time when the Tories are undermining devolution and tearing up worker’s rights and environmental protections.

“At least a third of Labour voters would vote Yes and Scottish Labour is pushing them away. The STUC have said clearly that they support Scotland's right to decide, even if they don't all agree on independence itself. It's sad to see Labour no longer interested in representing the views of Scotland's workers in the same way. It’s clear that only the Scottish Greens stand for a Scotland that puts workers first with our own seat at the European table.”
