In Edinburgh, tens of thousands of people went on track for the independence of Scotland

In Edinburgh on October 6, tens of thousands of people went on track to support Scotland's independence.

This is  reported by Herald Scotland.

The procession started at the Edinburgh Castle and ended in a park near the Scottish Parliament.

The organizers announce the participation of 100,000 people, making this the largest event in support of Scotland's independence. Instead, law enforcers give much more modest data on the number of participants - 20 thousand.



"I believe in Scottish independence and believe that today's demonstration is a visual demonstration that our country needs independence," one of the participants of the action said.



On the way of the participants of the procession there were groups of opponents of independence, who shouted opposing slogans. In particular, they are proud of both the British and the Scots at the same time. There was no clash between the opponents.

According to recent polls, Scotland's independence is supported by 45% of the region's population, the magazine writes.

In May, tens of thousands of people in Glasgow went on a march for the independence of Scotland .

In 2014, the first referendum on the independence of the country was held in Scotland. At that time, most voted for the country to remain in the UK.

In 2017, London  rejected Scotland's referendum  on independence. This happened after that, even though the Scottish Parliament supported  the second referendum  on independence.

The British Prime Minister Teresa May has said that he opposes such a referendum, since he is  "out of place"  due to the withdrawal of the state from the European Union, in which Scotland wishes to remain.
