Edinburgh road closures: Edinburgh streets to be closed for Independence and Extinction Rebellion marches on Saturday

Here are all the Edinburgh roads that will be closed today, as Independence supporters and Extinction Rebellion activists take to the streets.

Two different marches are set to take place in Edinburgh’s city centre today, which will cause some disruption to travel.

Extinction Rebellion Scotland activists will march from Princes Street to the UK Government headquarters at Queen Elizabeth House in Sibbald Walk, to protest rising energy costs and Liz Truss’ continued support of the fossil fuel industry.
