Hundreds of people are expected to gather in Glasgow's George Square today to rally for Scottish independence.

The annual 'Hope Over Fear' event, that falls on or around the anniversary of the referendum on September 18 2014, will involve a day of speeches, music and other entertainment.

Crowds are expected to gather in what they have declared "Freedom Square" between 11.30am and 4pm.

A post on the organisers' Facebook event reads: "On October 12th 2014, Hope over Fear organised a hugely successful rally in George (Freedom)Square, Glasgow to help lift the spirits of the Yes family, after the disappointment of the referendum, and to declare that far from being over, in the words of Gerry Cinnamon in his Hope over Fear anthem, 'its only the start of the show.'

"We gave a commitment that day, to return to 'Freedom Square' annually on or around September 18th until Scotland achieves full independence, and we continue to honour that commitment.

"There will be no marching, just a traditional gathering of the broad Yes family where you can spend a couple of hours catching up with old friends and making new ones, while being entertained by a variety of talented performers who have been consistent in their support for Scottish independence."

The event will be met at one point by the Independent Loyal Orange Order who will pass by the square.

However police say they do not anticipate any disorder or disruption as the group marches by.
