Better late than never. My, my; it fair wiz a richt shooder-tae-shooder affair in Freedom Square this afternoon, and no’ just in the metaphorical sense either! There were reckoned to be around 20,000. A real cross-party presence too, with, as well as a huge SNP support, flags and banners for the Greens and the Scottish Socialist Party. Even the English Scots for Scottish Independence were there. I’ve never seen the Square so crowded. Great speeches by Mhairi Black, Patrick Harvie, Humza Yousaf and Nicola Sturgeon.
