🥀 Anas Sarwar and Labour want to keep Scotland’s NHS tied to a right-wing privatising Westminster Tory government.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Independence means our NHS will be protected from Westminster and empowered with the tools to continue delivering for the people of Scotland.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 The referendum date has been announced, the campaign is on, and the world's eyes are on Scotland.

🌍 As the international media increasingly recognise the clear mandate for #indyref2, here's our digest of international coverage.

Lovely to discuss the Summer Reading Challenge at Westminster yesterday- I know what a fantastic job our local libraries do in making this engaging and fun for children. Glad to pick up some smashing books which I’ll drop off to one of our local libraries to add to their stock 📚

Kirsten Oswald @kirstenoswald admires the @tiecampaign who provide LGBTQ+ inclusive SRE. "Our young people deserve to have inclusive open education, to have the confidence that they are perfect and valued just exactly as they are."

#50YearsOfPride #pride @OutForIndy

Kirsten Oswald @kirstenoswald says MPs must call out the Rwanda deportation plan that puts LGBTQ+ people in danger, must support inclusive RSE, must calling out dogwhistle language, must call out culture wars.

#50YearsOfPride #pride @OutForIndy

Kirsten Oswald @kirstenoswald "I consider myself to be a feminist. That is in absolutely no way in conflict with my support for LGBT rights or for trans people. My rights are not threatened by other people having their rights respected."

#50YearsOfPride #pride @OutForIndy

Kirsten Oswald @kirstenoswald - The Prime Minister acted shamefully over #BanConversionTherapy, applauds for those Conservative MPs who spoke out, but it is unjustifiable that trans people should be excluded.

#50YearsOfPride #pride @OutForIndy

Kirsten Oswald @kirstenoswald applauds Christina McKelvie @ChristinaSNP Scottish Equalities Minister on her unstinting commitment for a full #BanConversionTherapy. And for the @churchscotland who will permit the marriage of same-sex couples.

#50YearsOfPride #pride @OutForIndy

MPs are now holding a #BackbenchBusiness debate on 50 years of Pride in the UK.

This was put forward by @AngelaCrawley30 and @kirstenoswald.

"What if that other voice we all know so well responds saying 'we say no and we are the state'? Well, we say yes and we are the people." @Ianblackford_MP quotes Canon Kenyon Wright's timeless words. Right in 1990, right in 2022. #pmqs

"Contrast with our European neighbours who have greater income equality; lower poverty rates and higher productivity.. why not Scotland?...
We will make the positive case for independence. Will the opposition - if they can - make the case for continued Westminster rule?"
#PMQs

.@Ianblackford_MP: "Scottish democracy will not be a prisoner of any Prime Minister in this place.

So, what is this UK government scared of? Democracy? Or is it simply that they have run out of ideas to defend this failing Westminster system?" #PMQs

"I'm not like Boris Johnson who is breaching international law with his actions on the NI Protocol."

@NicolaSturgeon says she has done the 'responsible thing' by asking the Supreme Court to rule on a second Scottish independence referendum.

“We are not shying away from challenges - each and every day we deal with them - but we would be better equipped to tackle these challenges with with full powers of independence” @NicolaSturgeon @SkyNews #KayBurley #indyref2

Today @NicolaSturgeon has announced @scotgov’s plans to hold an independence referendum on the 19th of October 2023 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

It is time to finally put Scotland’s future into the hands of Scotland’s people 🤍

"What if that other voice [Westminster] we all know so well responds by saying, 'We say no, and we are the state'? Well we say ‘yes’ – and we are the people”.

"To believe in Scottish independence is to believe in a better future.

"It involves an unashamedly optimistic view of the world.

"The belief that things can be better than they are now." @NicolaSturgeon 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

Independence as a means of Scotland fulfilling our potential at home and playing our part in building a better world. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 #indyref #yes

Grateful to @OPFS for a constructive meeting, including discussing the impact of the failing Child Maintenance Service - huge delays and a failure to collect payments amongst issues exacerbating the cost of living crisis.

Everyone at today’s summit was in agreement - we need buffer zones. And we need to work together collaboratively to get there.

Thank you @NicolaSturgeon for your support and commitment on this. ❤️

The issue of a Scottish independence referendum was settled in last year's Holyrood elections. The parties supporting a referendum won a majority and those that opposed one lost. In a democracy, especially a 'voluntary union' the people should get what they voted for. #indyref2 https://twitter.com/GlennBBC/status/1540254213871177731

Glenn Campbell @GlennBBC

“Democracy is not a wheeze”

Constitution secretary @AngusRobertson insists voters will have a choice on Scotland’s future

He thinks the UK government should accept the SNP / Green majority at Holyrood as a mandate for #indyref2

We raised the rainbow flag at our Eastwood HQ today to mark #PrideMonth

Pride is a celebration of people coming together in love & friendship, to show how far LGBTQ+ rights have come, & how in some places there's still work to be done.

Happy #PrideMonth to everyone in East Ren!

Just a reminder the state cannot prevent women having abortions. The state can only prevent women having safe abortions. If you want to make abortion less safe, you are a danger to women.

Go Team Scotland at the Commonwealth Games @Team_Scotland ! P4 have been learning all about Birmingham 2022. Thank you to Mr Keith from PSL Team Sports who came to speak to P4 and P5 about the Scotland team kits. #NPSHWB #sportsweek

Coming up on @LBCNews at 0850 Scottish equalities minister @ChristinaSNP speaks to @azizlisa about the new Bill of Rights and why the Scottish Government has said it is “shocking and unnecessary”

UK Government proposals to repeal the #HumanRightsAct would remove vital safeguards protecting everyone in society, Equalities Minister Christina McKelvie has said.

We are calling for @ScotParl to be consulted on any changes affecting Scotland.
