It seems land reform is in danger of becoming an internal conversation between Scottish Government Ministers and their lawyers. One year after Andrew Stoddart's eviction date, another tenant farmer family -- the Patersons of Arran -- are selling off their livestock, farm equipment and furniture and trying to prepare mentally for their own eviction in precisely two weeks. A motion by Andy Wightman calling for emergency legislation to halt their eviction has been semi-scuppered by the Paterson's own MSP Kenny Gibson who proposed an amendment removing criticism of the Scottish Government and a demand for tripartite mediation. Meanwhile the word is the Scottish Government will not step in (even though they accept it was a previous Scotgov's faulty law that these tenants were left so vulnerable to capricious landlords). Surely it's time to put people before procedure, action before risk aversion and determination to stop these evictions before preciousness about criticism. That's why #OurLand has called a demonstration of solidarity with the tenant farmers for tomorrow (Thursday 17th Nov) at 1pm outside the public entrance to the Scottish Parliament. If you care about social justice, there is no other cause that needs your support more on Thursday. If you can make it for even 30 minutes at 1pm these farming families will be forever grateful".
