In the Scottish capital, Edinburgh, thousands of people came for the “March for Independence.”
“What a day! 250,000 behind us marching for independence,” wrote in her Twitter MP from the National party of Scotland Joanna Cherry. There are no official data on the number of participants of the action yet.
Scottish Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon expressed support for the March on Twitter. “Good luck to everyone marching for independence in Edinburgh later. I’m not able to be there in person today, but I will be with you in spirit. Have a great day. And be in no doubt – independence is coming,” she wrote.
Last Wednesday, Sturgeon accused British Prime Minister Boris Johnson that he intends to implement “Brexit” without an agreement with the European Union, which contradicts the will of Scottish voters. Sturgeon said that in the next two years will hold another referendum on Scottish independence. During the plebiscite in 2014, 55 percent of Scots were in favor of staying in the United Kingdom.
