Hundreds have turned out to a second demonstration organised by anti-mask protesters outside the Scottish Parliament Holyrood building.
The mask-less activists can be seen in Holyrood Park in their masses protesting mandatory vaccines and social distancing rules.
Participants can be seen carrying placards with anti-lockdown messages including “Purge the Sturge”, “No second wave, there wasn’t a first one” and “Hitler required compliance too.”
A similar rally was organised in the same location last month by Paddy Hogg, a councillor in North Lanarkshire, who was arrested shortly after the event.
The September protest had been widely criticised, with Scotland's national clinical director, Professor Jason Leitch, describing the activists as "deeply irresponsible.”
