Thousands of independence supporters hit the streets of Glasgow yesterday in a march organised by the All Under One Banner (AUOB) group.
Marchers braved heavy rain and strong winds in the procession, which left Kelvingrove Park on Saturday morning and headed through the city centre towards a finishing point in Glasgow Green.
AUOB said 80,000 people took part, despite the weather and the disruption to travel.
A number of SNP MPs were in attendance at the march including Justice Secretary Humza Yousaf.
He tweeted: “Rain certainly hasn’t dampened our spirits! People as far back as the eye can see. Lots of EU flags here as well as Saltires.”
Also marching were Kirsten Oswald, David Linden and Margaret Ferrier, as well as MSPs Keith Brown – the SNP deputy leader – and John Swinney.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon was not at the march but tweeted in support of the demonstration.
She said: “Good luck to everyone marching for independence in Glasgow today – hope the weather isn’t too bad.
“Sorry I can’t be there today, but look forward to seeing you all again soon. In the meantime, sending my support and best wishes.”
Futher AUOB marches are planned for Arbroath on April 4 and another in Glasgow on May 2.
