A MARCH for independence is being organised for Glasgow on the Saturday after the First Minister is likely to announce further easing of the lockdown restrictions.

The Yes2 march to the annual Hope Over Fear rally is likely to be the first march of its kind since lockdown began, and is conditional on the Scottish Government going ahead with the easing of restrictions with such announcements expected either later this month or by September 14.

Glasgow City Council will also have to approve the match and organisers say they are already in talks with the council about how to make the event as safe as possible.

A spokesperson for those planning the march said: “Nicola Sturgeon has indicated that outdoor events from September 14 with limited numbers will be allowed. This will be the first indy event since lockdown started.

“Talks are ongoing with Glasgow City Council and we may still apply social distancing and masks, and encourage social bubbles just in case, because that way it’s easy to track and trace re: any outbreak of Covid-19.”

The procession route will be as follows: 11.30am start at Kelvingrove Park, Kelvinway, Gibson Street, Eldon Street, Woodlands Road, Sauchiehall Street, Pitt Street, West George Street, Blythswood Square (S), West George Street, Renfield Street, Union Street, Argyle Street, Queen Street, George Square (W), George Square (N).

Further details will be announced on the Yes2indee social media pages.
