Thousands of Scots take to Glasgow streets in march against racism, Islamophobia / Pics

Thousands of Scottish people took to the streets of Glasgow on Saturday holding banners, flags, and posters in a national campaign against racism.

Campaigners of all ages walked through the city center, protesting against the rise in racism, Islamophobia, and anti-Semitism and support of refugee and migrant rights in the face of recent national and global events.

Organized by the UK Stand Up To Racism campaign, the march finished this afternoon in George Square near the City Chambers, in Glasgow where there was entertainment and a number of speakers.

The walk was part of a series of demonstrations taking place across Europe to mark the global event of the United Nations International Anti-Racism Day.

It comes after two US judges ruled against President Donald Trump’s controversial travel ban. Cities such as Berlin, Vienna, and Athens, as well as UK cities Cardiff and London also took part.

Stand Up To Racism Scotland tweeted: “3,000 + attend the #MarchAgainstRacism in Glasgow. We said it loud; we said it clear – refugees are welcome here!”
