The Indy Camp at Holyrood


25 March 2016

The application of the Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body to remove the “Indy Camp” protestors from the campus of the Scottish Parliament has been heard before Lord Turnbull. The debate, which took place on 24th March 2016, raised issues concerning the very existence of the law of “trespass” in Scotland, the applicability of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and the inter-relationship between various Acts of Parliament and the Act of Union.

Lord Turnbull made avizandum at the end of a lengthy day of submissions, which concluded after 6pm.

The Scottish Parliament was represented by David Thomson, of Axiom.
