"RISE is part of a crucially important European wide movement standing up to neo-liberalism and the financialisation of our economy and society.

"I am pleased to support RISE candidates in these elections because they challenge the consensus of the four neo-liberal parties.

"Scotland needs RISE MSP's to oppose the low wage economy and austerity that threatens our public services. I urge voters in the Lothians to support Colin Fox on the regional list. It is absolutely vital we get socialists back into the Scottish Parliament."

"Iā€™ll be voting SNP on my first vote but RISE on my second, because I want to see a socialist and pro-independence party in the Scottish parliament and believe that RISE will stand up for working-class people across Scotland."
