Thousands marched through Edinburgh, Scotland, Saturday to call for Scottish independence from the UK. Scottish voters will answer the question in a referendum approximately a year from now, on Sept. 18, 2014: “Should Scotland be an independent country?”

Police told the BBC that some 8,000 people participated, and organizers estimated between 20,000 and 30,000 partook in the day’s events, which were varied.
