Pro-Scottish independence protesters rallied in Edinburgh on Saturday, a day after the UK’s departure from the European Union.
Protesters were seen holding the Saltire as well as flags of the EU, Wales and Ireland. A banner at the demo reads “Choose Scotland. Big enough, smart enough, had enough.”
The pro-independence organisation ‘Stand Up For Scotland’ called for the rally against UK Prime... Еще Minister Boris Johnson.
A small counter-demonstration was held on the opposite side of the road where participants held British flags and a banner reading “We love British independence.”
On Wednesday, January 29, the Scottish Parliament passed a motion backed by 64 votes to 54 to hold a new referendum on Scottish independence. Boris Johnson has dismissed calls for a second referendum.
