Many are speculating that the event this Saturday will attract the largest turn out yet in the series of marches across Scotland for Scottish Independence. The organisers however appear to be facing opposition from the public body HES.
Historic Environment Scotland have denied the use of Hollyrood park by All Under One Banner to hold their after march rally based on the claim that they have to remain politically neutral.
The news of this set back has sparked a number of pop up Facebook events that just so happen to be taking place at the venue around the same time such as…
- Jeely Piece Making Workshop
- Sovereign Scots Flag Display
- Highland Fling in the Park
- Let’s Claim Back Oor Lands
- The Great Scottish Thistle Hunt
- NATIONAL UNICORN DAY
- Croquet on the Lawn
- Rab C Appreciation Society BBQ
And many others.
AUOB are meeting with HES again in a last ditch effort to get permission to hold the organised rally in the interest of public safety. If AUOB prove to be unsuccessful in their negotiations at least there may be some Jeely Pieces or a spot of Croquet available on the day.
