Gathering in central Santiago de Compostela to celebrate O Dia Da Patria (the Galician national day), many Galicians wanted to express their support for a Yes vote in September and an independent Scotland. Solidarity with Scotland had a big presence at the celebrations, the Scottish representation was organised by Pilar Fernandez and her Scots husband Douglas. There was a visit from the SNP’s Tasmina Ahmed Sheikh, pictured on the right in the above photo. And here is a gaiteiro, a Galician bagpiper, playing Scotland the Brave on the Galician gaitas.
Here is a selection of other photos from today’s events – more will appear shortly on the website of Solidarity with Scotland. (Click on the photos to see the full sized image.)
