An estimated 2000 people marched in Edinburgh today against plans for the UK to leave the European Union (EU).
The demonstration was organised by The Young European Movement, an organisation which exists to fight for a better European Union with the UK at its heart.
A tourist watches on as demonstrators wait at the march starting point, the Radison Blu hotel on Ediburgh’s Royal Mile.
Catherine Stihler MEP, Patrick Harvey MSP and Dr Mike Galsworthy from Scientists Against Brexit addressed the crowds.
Hundreds of people took to the streets of Edinburgh today to call on the Scottish Government to tighten up the laws on fox hunting.
The For the Foxes demonstration was organised by charities One Kind – which exists to end cruelty to Scotland’s animals – the League Against Cruel Sports, and the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW).
The demonstrators marched along the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, starting at St Giles and finishing outside the Scottish Parliament.
As marchers gathered at the Scottish Parliament, a minute silence was held to mark the death of Anna Campbell, an animal rights activist who was recently killed fighting alongside Kurdish forces in Afrin, northern Syria.
The march concluded with speeches from: Alison Johnstone MSP (Green Party), Colin Smyth MSP (Labour), Robbie Marsland (director of the League Against Cruel Sports Scotland), and other activists.
Around 50 people assembled on to Royal Mile in Edinburgh on 17 February 2018 to show support for the the European Union.
