Sturgeon condemns 'sectarian' disorder in Glasgow


Thousands gather at G7 protests

Nicola Sturgeon has reacted strongly to the ‘ sectarian disruption’ in Glasgow calling it a totally unacceptable act.

When hundreds of disruptive counter demonstrators joined the Irish Unity march, the roit police along with several dog-units and a helicopter had to be called in to control the situation.

The road blockage caused a lot of disorder on the streets.

Glasgow City Council said it planned to stop “morons intent on bringing mayhem to the streets of our city”.

In the wake of this unrest two men, with ages 37 and 21, have been arrested.

However the Scotland Police  has said it will undertake a “thorough and robust” review of the events.

What happened in Govan last night was utterly unacceptable. My thanks to @policescotland for their response. I welcome Glasgow City Council’s commitment to review the procedures around marches. Peaceful protest is a part of our democracy – violent and sectarian disruption is not. https://twitter.com/humzayousaf/status/1167566958730076163

Thank you to Police Scotland for dealing with this incident robustly – utterly depressing to see this divisive thuggery on our streets. Note Glasgow City Council will now take steps to review their procedures on marches & parades and take necessary actions to keep our City safe https://twitter.com/SWGlasgowPolice/status/1167547652361400322
