Before the event, organised by the National, Nicola Sturgeon said: "George Square will be packed today as people from all backgrounds join together to demand a better future for Scotland.

Today a pro-independence event is being held in George Square with Nicola Sturgeon, who has stepped up demands for a second referendum in 2020, as the headline speaker.
