In Glasgow on Saturday of November 2, thousands of people marched for the independence of Scotland from the UK. The Guardian reported that. 

According to the organizers, around 20,000 people took part in the march. A lot of demonstrators were carrying Scottish flags. 

Groups and organizations that support separation from the UK joined the All Under One Banner (AUOB) procession on Saturday in the final event of the year, following marches in Glasgow, Aberdeen, and Perth over the summer.

AUOB hoped to get at least 100,000 people to take part in the rally.

Gemma MacFadyen, 34, from Edinburgh was among those at the rally and has backed Scottish independence since she was a child.

She said: "To be honest, after the last referendum I was a bit deflated and disenfranchised and I was not going to be taking part anymore.

"But recently after a trip to the west coast of Scotland I’ve been re-inspired – so I’m here today."

"There is much more better alternative to take the future in your own hands and become an independent state," the first Prime Minister noted.
