Free to Disagree

In 2020, Jamie took forward the Free to Disagree campaign, bringing together a broad coalition of groups and individuals to oppose the Scottish Government’s Hate Crime and Public Order Bill.

Alongside other critics, the campaign succeeded in winning significant amendments to the hate crime bill including the removal of vague provisions on ‘inflammatory material’ and theater performances, and raising the legal threshold for offending.

Free to Disagree continues to monitor the implementation of the Hate Crime Act, and comment on wider free speech issues affecting Scotland.
