Stevenson Condemns Hate Crimes Against Polish People Living in UK

SNP MSP for Banffshire & Buchan Coast, Stewart Stevenson has condemned the recent rise in hate crimes in the UK.

Mr Stevenson spoke during a Parliamentary debate where he condemned attacks against Polish people and highlighted the positive relationship between Scotland and Poland throughout history.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said,

“There is no place for this kind of behaviour in the 21st century. These are people who have chosen to make their lives here. They contribute to our society and have every right to expect and demand safety.

“The people of Scotland have a deeply positive relationship with Poland. For centuries Scottish people have travelled there to live and work. There are still places in Poland that reflect this – like areas of GdaƄsk, called Nowe Szkoty­ – New Scots, and Stare Szkoty – Old Scots.

“Our cultural exchange is to be celebrated. Polish people have enriched Scotland just as Scottish people have enriched Poland. There is no place for this racism, ill-treatment or violence. In Scotland we have a message for our Polish friends – We are with you; stay with us.”
