The march for Scottish democracy was attended by approximately 30,000 people on 12 December, 1992 to coincide with the European Summit held in Edinburgh.

Organisations, including the Scottish Trades Union Congress (STUC), Scottish Churches, the Campaign for a Scottish Parliament, Scotland United, the National Union of Students, Common Cause and Democracy for Scotland, came together to organise the march and rally.

The march was chaired by the STUC and attended by cross-party politicians and activists including Acting Shadow Scottish Secretary Henry McLeish, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Jim Wallace, the Scottish National Party’s Alex Salmond, Isobel Lindsay from the Campaign for a Scottish Assembly, and writer William McIlvanney.
