The new RIC-Edinburgh banners on Johnstone Terrace one and a half hours before the AUOB march starts off
RIC's red flag bedecked Edinburgh Castle banner and the real Edinburgh Castle not yet flying a red
Palestinian and Catalan flags on the demo
Three photos of the RIC-led contingent on the Royal Mile - soon to become the Republican Mile!
Some of the queen's finest - AUOB stewards 'protect' 13 (unlucky) defenders of the 'White British' race
Two of the campaigns which joined the march - 'Trade Unionists for Independence' and 'NHS for Yes'
We're Scottish internationalist.....
... and we're young, nae feart and have hope and drive
RIC banners taking a rest in Hollyrood Park at the end of the demo - not a police officer or helicopter to be seen - truly a historic event (Historic Environment Scotland please note and raise a monument!)
Thanks for the photographs from Allan Armstrong, Pete Cannell, Grant Keir and Craig Maclean
