Justice for the Paterson Family
Campaigners from the Our Land Campaign came together to back MSP Andy Wightman’s call for emergency legislation to aid the tenant farmers like the Paterson family who face eviction in just over a week. There was a great attendance at 1pm on the 17th November demonstration which included speakers Lesley Riddoch, Andy Wightman and Stewart Kirkpatrick from 38 Degrees Scotland.
A 38 Degrees petition with over 25,000 signatures was handed over to MSPs which calls for the Scottish Government to step in. The Our Land Campaign fully supports Scottish Government intervention in this case and will keep a keen eye on any developments. Below is some coverage in The National of the demonstration.
