WE promised you on the Yes DIY page on Wednesday some news of future pro-independence events which we assured you were in the pipeline, and today we can reveal the first march after the planned ending of Covid-19 restrictions being organised by the Scottish Independence Movement (Sim).

Depending on the planned ending of restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic, scheduled for August 9, Sim will organise a march through Glasgow city centre on Saturday, August 14.

Sim march organiser Des Thomson said: “It’s all good news folks and things are getting better as we finally move into the last round in the fight of this dreaded disease and find light at the end of the tunnel. [Sim] are proud to announce that they are planning to march once again for Scottish independence and the Scottish Government will propose to give us all the green light for our first march out of Covid to march in Glasgow.

"To this end we are organising a march on Saturday, August 14, 2021 from Kelvingrove Park at 12 noon via Kelvin Way to Glasgow Green (Peoples Palace). I know you are all itching to get out there with your flags, weans, boogie boxes and dugs.

"While we await further advice from The Chief Medical Officer, it is advised that where appropriate that masks should be worn, especially by those of you whom despite double jags, have underlying health problems.

“Our stewards in fluorescent jackets will be on hand to answer any of your questions and we’re keen to see you all there in your droves.”

Sim is asking people to gather early for the march which will leave Kelvingrove at 11.55am prompt.

The proposed route is Kelvingrove Park, Kelvin Way, Gibson Street, Eldon Street, Woodlands Road, Sauchiehall Street, Pitt Street, West George Street, Blythswood Square, West George Street, Nelson Mandela Place, West George Street, George Square, George Street, High Street, Saltmarket, Glasgow Green.

The National has already revealed how two other pro-independence groups have arranged events to get Yes supporters back on the streets over the summer.

Yes2indee the first pro-independence group to gain a licence for a march in Glasgow this summer, which will take place on Saturday July 17 for 50 marchers only.

All Under One Banner will hold a static rally for independence in Dundee at the end of this month.

The group which has organised marches and rallies all over Scotland over the last few years before the pandemic decided to proceed with a static rally and not a march in view of the continuing concerns over the spread of Covid-19.
