The Scottish Youth Parliament believes that marginalised groups must be legally protected from hateful and abusive language, and people trying to stir up hate towards these groups; and that the law should be less piecemeal and more harmonised in this area. We therefore call for a specific harassment offence, and stirring up of hatred offences, for groups other than, but still including, race.
