    They're desperate to try and stop it. It was originally a longer route, starting at princes st gardens. It seems some will still be gathering there.

    It's going ahead, all the way into Holyrood park.

    There is a sit down protest against HES planned for the gardens before the march but itís nothing to do with AUOB.

    I've booked for the croquet on the lawn event in Holyrood Park tomorrow, the number of events planned is astonishing.

    Scotland can be a beacon, within these islands and beyond, for a socially just and sustainable society. Whilst there are many priorities which will require independence, there is also much that can and must be done now by the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government.

    The rally at Holyrood Park is on!


    AUOB ARE VICTORIOUS- TOMORROW WE MARCH FOR INDEPENDENCE AND RALLY AT HOLYROOD PARK

    We are not long out of the meeting with the authorities Re #AUOBEdinburgh, where we sat round a table with Edinburgh council, Police Scotland and Historic Environment Scotland (HES).

    We are proud to announce that Police Scotland have made an executive decision in the interests of health & safety and public order to facilitate our stance that we are Rallying at Holyrood park and are implementing emergency powers to make this happen.

    HES maintained their political stance that we were still refused permission but after a long meeting where we held to our principles we are delighted to announce Holyrood park is on!

    This seems to cast some doubt?

    I don't have any issue with the march going onto Holyrood Park but also acknowledge that HES are the land managers and they legitimately have the call. It does feel a bit like this has been put out by the organisers as a distraction from the likelihood that the attendees are going to be far less in number than was being predicted previously.

    What I found curious about the original AUOB statement you posted was that certain phrases and sections didn't ring true, or rather accurate.

    If there had been a meeting involving AUOB, Police Scotland, HES and CEC, I don't think for a second that Police Scotland would agree to being described as having made an 'executive decision'. I'm also not sure what these 'emergency powers' are that they are implementing - the police don't really have 'emergency powers' as such, they actually have very limited powers in legislation that exist in very specific circumstances. On one level I can get that they may wish HES to allow entry to the Park, but there's not a chance that they invoked some 'emergency powers' to make it happen.

    Whether or not the marchers get to Holyrood Park, the AUOB statement reads like a crock, TBH
    There's only one thing better than a Hibs calendar and that's two Hibs calendars

    Bet the queue for the toilets at the cafe are huge! I am assuming there will be no on site toilets like portaloos seeing as this is not an authorised event.

    Why not have it at the Meadows where there could have been proper facilities, toilets, catering and a proper stage for speakers etc. Sure the marchers would appreciate having basic things like food and toilet facilities.

    Well done to HES on making the sensible decision to allow it go ahead at Holyrood in order to ensure public safety but absolute disgrace the way the organisers went about this - particularly trying to use the "Right to Roam" legislation.

    Lots of people through the years worked incredibly hard to make sure we have some of the best land access laws in the world. We should be proud of our right to roam - but with that comes responsibility.

    The incredibly selfish actions and attitudes of folk like the organisers of this event are the reason we can't have nice things.

    Care to elaborate? Sitting on the outside, why wouldnít thousands of people be allowed to march through the capital?

    Conversely, how could they possible be stopped?

    I was there, and was just past the back of the Hub on Johnson Terrace. The march started prompt at 13:00 but I didn't get to the front of the Hub until 13:35. The march was still passing the World's End at 15:00. Make of this what you want but these are facts.

    Its not the march really (although i was severely p'd off a few months ago when i was caught in traffic behind an orange walk). Obviously in a democracy folk have got the right to protest (not really sure what this was a protest about mind). But I'm not looking at the political aspect.

    Its the attitide of "Ah'll dae what ah want" that the organisers have shown to the owners of the park. They were refused permission to assemble there for perfectly valid reasons and they decided to ignore that for their own ends - and then use their numbers and cause to bully their way to the answer they wanted.

    The bit that really gets my goat though is the attempted hijack of the right to roam legislation. I have to deal with this crap all the time. Our access rights in this country are amazing - and were hard won. But too many people want to ignore the fact that with those access rights come responsibilities. The "I'll do what i want and go where i want, i've got a right" crowd is what always spoils everything good we've got for the rest of us.
