    The public action is organised by “All Under One Banner”, pushing for sovereignty for the northern constituent nation of the UK. Scotland held an independence referendum in 2014, but the country voted against secession. Nevertheless, Scotland has been seeking another vote in view of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU.

    Demonstrators have gathered outside the Scottish parliament building in Edinburgh to call for Scotland's independence. According to the organisers - the "All Under One Banner" pro-independence movement - the protesters are also pushing against a "vicious attack" by London that seeks to "neuter and close the Scottish parliament". The protests come amid Westminster's plans for a new internal market, which Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon dubbed as "roughshod over the powers of the Scottish parliament".
