Solidarity with the SSP

The Scottish Socialist Party are asking for support. Four SSP MSPs have been summarily suspended from the Scottish Parliament and will not be paid for the month of September. Unlike many other MSPs and MPs the suspended SSP representatives don't have lucrative second jobs, consultancy positions or places on company boards of directors to fall back on. The financial suspensions also mean 28 members of staff will go without pay for a month. The MSPs were suspended for mounting a peaceful, silent protest, lasting five minutes, at First Minister’s question time.

More details here and here.
