One of the most successful series of marches and rallies Scotland has ever seen is the ‘All Under One Banner’ group. An estimated one hundred thousand people attended the latest march in Edinburgh on Saturday.
These marches have a very specific aim, to demonstrate the strength of support for independence. The group’s promotional adverts makes this clear as does its latest 2019 crowdfunding campaign which contains the following:
“The team at #AUOB wish to thank everyone who attended #AUOBEdinburgh and all those who watched and cheered on from afar.
“Together we have executed the biggest and boldest demonstration for Independence in Scottish History.”
However the goal and reason for these rallies is being deliberately misrepresented by BBC Scotland reporters. At the weekend both Glenn Campbell and Andrew Kerr described the purpose of the marches as supporting a second independence referendum.
This sly misrepresentation is being used in order to portray marchers and the SNP leadership as somehow at odds with one another over a second independence referendum.
Organisers of All Under One Banner would be doing the Yes movement a favour by calling out this misrepresentation by BBC Scotland and making it clear the rallies have one single purpose, to demonstrate the strength of support for independence across Scotland.
