Thousands Take to Streets of Glasgow for Scottish Independence March


Thousands of people have hit the streets of Glasgow to march in pro-independence rallies. It comes as Scotland, which opted to remain part of the UK in a 2014 referendum, sees the movement re-emerge in the wake of Brexit.

Participants of the All Under One Banner (AUOB) march gathered in Kelvingrove Park in Glasgow before walking in the direction of George Square. The event is open to "everyone who desires an independent nation," according to organizers.

"Glasgow city center will be brought to a standstill as our independence march traverses through en route to George Square," an AUOB member said on the event's fundraising page. The group says its main mission is to "march for independence at periodical intervals until Scotland is free."
