First Minister Alex Salmond making a speech during a march and rally in Edinburgh, calling for a Yes vote in next year's independence referendum. PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Picture date: Saturday September 21, 2013. The event appeared to draw crowds from across the country, with marchers filling the top half of the Royal Mile before wending their way along a city centre route. During the day, the gathered crowds were expected to hear speeches from key figures in the pro-independence movement such as First Minister Alex Salmond and his deputy Nicola Sturgeon. The campaigners gathered in the city's High Street before heading slowly along North Bridge, Waterloo Place and Regent Road towards the final destination of Calton Hill. A range of groups took part in the protest, from political parties to organisations such as Farming for YES and Football Supporters for Independence. See PA story POLITICS Scotland.
