Scottish Independence Begins Again – Saturday 30th July 2016 – Glasgow

Hi, hope you are all well and enjoying your summer.  Unfortunately, July in the West of Scotland has been a wash out.  Hopefully August will be much better.

Today there was a March for Independence which started at the West End of the City and made its way to George Square.  It was great to see the flags back in the City as well as a few “well kent” faces in the crowds.  The March and Rally went off peacefully and what started as a wet morning turned into quite a nice afternoon.

I hope you like some of my pictures which are below.

The Night Before the Scottish Vote for Independence George Square Glasgow 17 September 2014

I am feeling very emotional this evening as it is the night before we Scottish people will go to the Polling Stations tomorrow to cast what will be the most important vote they have ever made.  I was back at George Square in Glasgow after work tonight where there were at least 2,000 Yes Voters and a handful of No Voters.  The Yes Voters in the Square had a very party atmospher going on but the No Voters just stayed by the City Chambers chanting their No Campaign Slogans while some of the Yes Voters on the other side of the road chanted back and sang Flower of Scotland.  There were more police men and women this evening as it looked as if it could have turned nasty but I think the whole demonstration went off quietly or as quietly as these things can go.

I have taken some more photographs for you to have a look at and as usual they are © 2014 of Allison Anne Munro.

I bid you all a very good night and let’s see what the future holds for Scotland.

Allison
