Today, Friday, September 20, 2013, a delegation of the working group "iatz!" from the South Tyrolean Schützenbund will travel to Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland. Tomorrow, that is Saturday, September 21, the Scots will celebrate their Independence Day. The Schützen delegation will address thereby Tyrolian greetings with the main meeting of the Independence Day to the Scots.

"There will also be a meeting with other countries striving for freedom, such as Catalonia, Flanders, Basque Country, Veneto and many others," underlines the South Tyrolean Schützenbund. In the morning there will be a meeting of all participants. Around noon, the participants will then march to "Calton Hill", a hill located in the center of Edinburgh and part of the city's "UNESCO World Heritage Site". On the "Calton Hill" is also the headquarters of the Scottish government, where the crowd will hold the "Scottish Rally", a Scottish rally. Finally, an international press conference will be held in the late afternoon with all peoples striving for freedom.

"We Tyroleans will also join the Scots in expressing our common desire for independence and strengthen South Tyrol's friendship with Scotland. Only together we are strong!", the South Tyrolean Schützenbund is pleased.
