Thousands protest in Scotland demanding independence

Tens of thousands of people marched in Edinburgh calling for Scottish independence. Gary J Kelly from All Under One Banner, a group campaigning for Scottish independence, said around 100,000 people took part in the march and that the high turnout showed that the passion for independence was still there. Scotland voted to stay in the United Kingdom in a referendum in 2014. Two years later, Scottish voters overwhelmingly backed remaining in the European Union, even as Britain as a whole voted to leave. Last year, Scotland’s secessionist leader and First Minister Nicola Sturgeon postponed plans for a second independence referendum until the terms of Britain’s exit from the European Union are clear.
