The Scottish government has been stepping up political pressure to organize a vote for Scotland’s independence.

The Scotland National Party has repeatedly announced its determination to hold a 2nd referendum on separating Scotland from the UK.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said anyone standing in the way of the vote is going against the will of Scottish people.
