ALL Under One Banner (AUOB) have launched a crowdfunder to raise cash for an organiser facing charges related to a pro-independence march in Aberdeen.

Following a back-and-forth with the local council, the march was given the go-ahead on the agreement that certain conditions would be met.

Organisers say the march, which took place in August, was a great success and attracted over 12,000 pro-independence marchers.

However organiser Gary Kelly, who has been involved in organising pro-independence events since 2014, has since been hit with two charges for allegedly failing to meet those conditions.

According to the crowdfund page, Kelly has denied the charges and is currently seeking legal advice and representation.

The crowdfund, which at the time of writing has raised £750, seeks to raise funds to assist with expected legal costs.
