A PRO-INDEPENDENCE campaign group has announced two events in the build-up to indyref2 – and they’re urging Scots to get involved.

The first event will take place in early August, while the second is planned for the weekend before the Scottish Government’s planned independence referendum in October 2023.

Yes2Indee have invited people to meet at Festival Park, on the south of the River Clyde opposite the Ovo Hydro, on August 6 2022. From there, protesters will head to Gallowgate Park in the city’s east end.

Further details will be announced closer to the time, but the Saor Alba Pipeband will be in attendance.

Yes2Indee’s national coordinator Gary Kelly said: “It’s time to unite the Yes movement and show the world that Scotland wants our democratic right to choose our own future, it's for the Scottish people who are sovereign to decide not Westminster or the Supreme Court in another country.

“Once again we would like to invite those attending to contact us regarding stewarding, if you're free on the day. We will also have our first aid team in attendance, as well as the Saor Alba Pipeband.”

The second event is planned for October 14 2023, just five days before Nicola Sturgeon’s government is aiming to hold indyref2.

Campaign group All Under One Banner (AUOB) have announced plans for a similar pre-referendum rally in Edinburgh on the same date, but Yes2Indee said this wouldn’t be an issue.

Kelly said: “From a personal point of view tactically this could be advantageous. Having two events in the two biggest cities on the same day will work, I'm positive both events will be massive.

“This gives people who can’t afford to travel far an option and with that option a chance to display a better front. I’m sure both will have amazing lineups as Scotland has an amazing array of talent. From all sides of the country, let’s make the events as big as possible because we know the world is watching.”

Notification of the 2023 event, which is anticipated to run from Kelvin Way to Glasgow Green, has been lodged with the Glasgow events committee.
