Nicola Sturgeon shows support for Refugee Festival Scotland!

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon shows her support for Refugee Festival Scotland during First Minister’s Questions this morning.

Today is #WorldRefugeeDay, where we stand in solidarity with over 70 million displaced people across the world. Thank you to those who joined us this afternoon at St Enoch Square to make our voices heard. Event organisers across the country look forward to welcoming everyone to their events over the coming 10 days.

“I’m proud that people are welcomed here and can rebuild their lives. I would like to thank all those who are involved in supporting refugees across our country” – Nicola Sturgeon

Thank you to the Scottish Government for your recognition of our work and of the situation for New Scots and their communities across the country.

Communities Secretary Aileen Campbell will be attending Refuweegee’s exhibition “Claiming Back the Narrative” on Friday evening, one of many highlights of this year’s festival.
