This photograph was taken at the Vigil on May 1st 1997, the day of the General Election.
Democracy for Scotland was a non party political organisation. Following the Conservative Party victory in the 1992 General Election Democracy for Scotland maintained a constant vigil on Regent Road in Edinburgh near to old the Royal High School. This site was seen as the natural home of a Scottish Parliament. The vigil ended following the yes vote in the devolution referendum of 11th September 1997.
