A large many-thousand procession in support of the independence of Scotland took place in Edinburgh, United Kingdom, Herald Scotland reports.
According to the organizers of the march, the number of participants reached 100 thousand. According to the police, 20 thousand people became participants.
The procession started near Edinburgh Castle and finished near the parliament building. Participants carried flags of Scotland, and also listened to performances of musicians and politicians.
"I believe in Scottish independence and I believe that today's demonstration is a visual demonstration of the fact that our country needs independence," said one of the protesters.
During the march, the protesters met with a group of opponents of the independence of Scotland, but everything went without incident.
Police report one detainee who committed a minor offense.
Earlier, Scotland once again raised the issue of holding a referendum on the independence of the region after Brexit.
In September 2014, a referendum on independence from Britain was already held in Scotland. Proponents of independence then lost: 55.3% of Scots voted against the withdrawal of Scotland from the United Kingdom.
