Rally for Scottish independence

Issue No. 2370

Thousands of people in Scotland are mobilising to march for independence on Saturday 21 September in Edinburgh. 

The event is organised by a collective of Scottish independence supporters calling for a vote for an independent Scotland in next year’s referendum.

Around 10,000 people joined a similar rally in September last year.

Steven Griffiths is a campaigner for independence involved in the Scrap Trident Coalition. 

He said, “I’ll be marching for independence because a Yes vote in the referendum is our first genuine opportunity for radical change in my lifetime. 

“We have to reject the unfair and destructive policies of the Westminster elite. 

“Welfare and health budgets are being slashed while politicians tell us we need a £100 billion Trident system which we can never use.”

March and Rally for Scottish Independence. Saturday 21 September, 11am to 4pm, Calton Hill, Edinburgh EH1 3BJ
