Human Rights are NOT optional

humanThe SDA draft constitution holds that the ECHR should be enshrined at the heart of Scottish law.  The new Conservative majority government's intent to repeal the Human Rights Act and take the UK out of the ECHR is completely at odds with the principles that the SDA.  The SDA supports any and every effort to oppose this by the Scottish Government and Scotland's Parliament.

See Article 2: The Fundamental Rights, Liberties and duties of the People in our draft Constitution.

The SDA has published a draft constitution for an independent Scotland which has been picked up as the basis of a crowdsourced constitution project called The Peoples Constitution of Scotland ~ http://www.ThePeoplesConstitution.co.uk/ This is a particularly interesting project opened to anyone to comment and vote on particular aspects of a constitution and make further proposals to improve on what is there. There may well be aspects of this draft that you disagree with. That is fine but we would urge you to get involved. Engage with the process. Make alternative suggestions and tell your friends about it. Above all start thinking about what comes next. Now is the time to be really thinking about these solutions.
