Supporters of Scottish independence have vowed to hold a "massive" march in Glasgow once the coronavirus lockdown is over.

All Under One Banner's (AUOB) Neil Mackay made the announcement on social media yesterday. 

It comes following an announcement from the Orange Order in which they revealed plans to hold a march to thank the UK government. 

The head of Scotland’s Orange Lodge has called for a special march through Glasgow honouring the Conservative government’s response to the Coronavirus pandemic to be held later this year.

Sharing an article outlining the above, Mr Mackay said "independence takes priority over bigotry" as he shared plans for their event.
