The Friends of Thomas Muir

Our History

The ALBA Party support the campaign by the Friends of Thomas Muir to persuade Historic Environment Scotland to revise the Category listing of Huntershill House from category B to A.

ALBA applauds the role of Thomas Muir of Huntershill in the development of democracy in Scotland and proposed that a suitable recognition for Muir and his fellow Friends of the People should adorn the precincts of the Scottish Parliament to remind visitors of their struggle in combating oppression and securing the franchise and Scottish Parliamentarians of the importance of peaceful protest in securing and defending democratic rights.
