Across the European Union laws and policies are being passed by governments to deter refugees from emigrating to their countries.  Denmark was recently in the news for its new law that makes residency more difficult to get and confiscates the belongings of immigrants.

Scotland votes on independence

Photo: greensambaman/flickr

"Should Scotland be an independent country?" This question will be put to the people of Scotland in a referendum September 18. With just over a month to go, the "No" side campaigning as Better Together, has the lead over Yes Scotland, polling above 55 per cent.

A simple majority vote will decide the outcome.

The Scottish National Party, founded in 1934, promotes the independence option along with the Scottish Green Party and the Socialist Party of Scotland. The Labour Party, the Conservatives, and the Liberal Democrats are opposed.
