In her Hogmanay speech @NicolaSturgeon stated: "We will provide support and reassurance for the #EUcitizens who have done us the honour of choosing to make #Scotland their home."

Here is how we can begin to constructively fulfill that promise: docs.google.com/document/d/1rG…
1. EU citizens will face discrimination by Brexit/HostileEnv design. Those who have Settled Status need a physical token not offered by the Home Office but any individuals status can be checked online - including by @scotgov who should issue a #ScottishResidencyCard open to all.
2. All residents of #Scotland are equally affected by Scots Law, yet not all are protected by it. For 2020 I hope to see an all-party, multi-disciplinary Equality workgroup at the Scottish parliament finding & using Scots law & powers to enhance equality and protect all Scots.
3. Xenophobic & racial discrimination has increased UK-wide since Brexit, and while less affected Scotland, too, is seeing an increase in hateful language. For the coming year Scotland must put in place a public anti-discrimination campaign and an accessible reporting mechanism.
4. The detrimental impact Brexit is having on EU citizens rights, lives & livelihoods is not just emotional or legal - being forced to leave a country is as expensive as falling through the social net. Be ready!

Can #Scotland's #solidarity take the shape of an #EmergencyFund?
5. Without powers over immigration and actual #independence likely to occur years after Brexit EU citizens in Scotland require legal support in order to fight cases to defend their #HumanRights.

The @scotgov must support in coin, word & deed those fighting to stay in #Scotland.
6. Let 2020 be the year Scotland FINALLY passes the #VotingFranchiseBill. My fellow nEU Scots & I have been waiting for 3+ years. Surprise ready for when it passes!

Until it does, I'm afraid, I won't be campaigning for indy@EU as before and instead focus on EU Scots rights here.
See you in the future!
