The Young Greens US Stand With Scotland

With the historic vote for Scottish independence less than 10 days away, the Young Greens of the United States express their solidarity with the Scottish people.

The vote for independence is very much in line with Green values. It will allow Scotland to have more control over its own affairs internationally, rather than be treated merely as an extension of the United Kingdom.

We would also extend that same solidarity to Wales and Northern Ireland, if they eventually decide to take a similar path.

This issue may not be given as much attention as it deserves outside of Europe, but its significance should not be underestimated.  This represents a nonviolent path to further democracy through a democratic process itself.

Other nations can and should follow in Scotland’s example here, regardless of whether or not this initiative succeeds. Whereas the government of the United States may not stand with us on this issue, we hope that our Scottish counterparts can take comfort in our support.

PRESS CONTACTS:
Evan Lyne, Co-Chair eblyne@outlook.com
Tyler Beloin, National Delegate tbeloi1@pride.hofstra.edu
