In this series of guest blogs, we asked the leaders of the main political parties in Scotland to share their thoughts ahead of the annual St.Andrew’s Day Anti-Racism March & Rally which takes place this Saturday. Our final guest blogger is Nicola Sturgeon MSP, leader of the SNP.
There is absolutely no place for racism or discrimination in Scotland. No matter their race, religion, ethnicity or nationality, people should feel safe and secure in their communities – and be able to reach their full potential.
We have come very far but clearly we should never be complacent. None of us can be a bystander – it is the job of all of us to continue fighting against racism, bigotry and prejudice in all its forms.
The STUC is to be commended for its hard work in sending out this unequivocal message.
