Today, the Yes Scotland campaign is having a march. The main reason for the march seems to be so that the march planned for 21st September 2013 is not the first march for independence.
Next Saturday, there will be another march: I expect it to be quite a bit smaller, but much more important. Alex Salmond won’t turn out for it, there won’t be any fancy rally in Princes Street gardens.

We met in the Grassmarket at noon. It was already hot. There were a lot of us. The news services without exception (that I saw) described this as
A march by the far-right Scottish Defence League (SDL) was opposed by a group called United Against Fascism (UAF).
Both marches approached St Andrew’s House by different routes.
Hundreds of officers were placed between the two groups. The SDL marchers were driven away by bus.
