The SEP’s campaign has received a very warm response from young people; 16- and 17-year-olds are entitled to vote in the referendum.

In its statement, Vote NO in the Scottish referendum: Fight for a Socialist Britain, the SEP states that “all claims that ‘independence’ is a democratic demand, offering an alternative to cuts and austerity, are lies. The move for separation from the UK is being led by right-wing forces espousing nationalism, whether or not they attempt to dress this up in fake left language. The aim is to transform Scotland into a low tax, cheap labour platform for the benefit of the banks and transnational corporations.”
