Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon addressed thousands of Scottish independence supporters in Glasgow's city centre on Saturday, urging all her supports to vote in the United Kingdom's election on 12 December.
«All of us must make sure that over the next few weeks we persuade everyone we know: our family, our friends, our neighbours, our work mates to come out on December the 12th and send... Еще the biggest, loudest, most resounding message to Westminster: that it is time for Scotland to choose our own future and it is time for Scotland to be an independent country,» said the Scottish National Party (SNP) leader.
«I think everything that has been going on, the contrast between government in Scotland and government in Westminster just now has never been more stark and I think people are finally catching on to that,» stated Scottish independence supporter Fraser Stewart.
A small group of unionists and anti-Scottish independence counter-protesters also attended while waving UK flags.
Sturgeon and her party are hoping a second independence referendum will be held in Scotland in 2020.
A general election was called on 30 October by UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, halting the UK's exit out of the European Union on October 31 and calling voters to the polls on December 12, the first December election since 1923.
