Yesterday, thousands of people gathered in George Square, Glasgow, to protest Donald Trump's visit to Scotland. There were elderly people, small children, and all ages between, people of various nationalities and ethnic backgrounds. I was fortunate enough to be one of them.
The protest, which lasted for three hours, was entirely peaceful. There was a counter-protest of sorts early on — made of up four people — but the police, who were amiable and professional throughout, made sure they didn't cause any trouble.
In such a grim time, it was beautiful to see strangers talking to one another, confiding in one another, laughing together in generous anger.
