Flag-burners to join independence march
PRO-Union parties have accused the independence movement of “giving credence” to a group which advocates violent revolution following the revelation that its members were set to join Alex Salmond and other Nationalist figures at a major rally in the Capital.
The Better Together Campaign urged the First Minister to pull out of a march from the Meadows to The Mound on Saturday rather than stand beside the Scottish Republican Socialist Movement.
The group, whose website features photographs of burning Union flags, is expected to join mainstream politicians and high-profile supporters campaigning for a Yes vote in 2014.
SRSM states: “Because the ruling class will not relinquish power without their use of armed force, this revolution will be a time of violence as well as liberation.”
March organiser Jeff Duncan, a former serviceman, said in a statement: “Behaviour which is offensive, inappropriate or represents extreme views will not be tolerated by the organisers of the march and any organisation which promotes itself in such a way will not be welcome at the event.”
