ORGANISERS have urged Yes supporters not to let a forecast of poor weather deter them from turning out in force for tomorrow’s All Under One Banner march in Glasgow.

The march is going ahead despite the rally part of the “emergency” event called after the General Election having to be cancelled for safety reasons due to high winds.

All Under One Banner (AUOB) tweeted: "If we let some Scottish rain stop us marching then we’ve no chance. The march is on.”

Glasgow City Council has estimated that 100,000 people will take part, while AUOB says the total could reach a record-breaking 300,000.

The march will leave Kelvingrove Park at 11.30am sharp and head to Glasgow Green, with the route taking in Kelvinway, Gibson Street, Eldon Street, Woodlands Road, Sauchiehall Street, Pitt Street, Blythswood Square (S), West George Street, Renfield street, Union street, Jamaica Street and Clyde Street.

Gary Kelly, the named organiser for the march, said: “All Under One Banner takes the safety of everyone attending our marches and rallies very seriously. High wind is forecast in Glasgow for Saturday and so it is not possible for the rally at Glasgow Green to go ahead.

“I am sure people will be disappointed because a number of great speakers had agreed to take part. However, safety is always top priority. I’m very pleased the march is going ahead.”

AUOB’s Neil Mackay added: “Organising outdoor events in Scotland in winter is always difficult and is always subject to our weather. We had a number of great speakers lined up for the rally so it is a pity it will not now take place.

“We have apologised to the speakers for the cancellation and they have all been very understanding and supportive. All Under One Banner looks forward to an important and impressive march taking place on Saturday.”

Speakers who were due to take part in the rally will take part in a press conference after the march.
