"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."

"I’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."
