Images show demonstrators of the anti-sectarian group outside St Benedict’s church in Easterhouse, a suburb to the east of Glasgow. The Call it Out protesters were angered by Orange Order marchers passing silently by the church.

Call it Out banners waved with slogans against what they claim as anti-Catholic and anti-Irish bigotry.

Thousands have banded to take part in what is expected to be the largest Orange march through Glasgow since the start of the pandemic.

At least 30 walks have been organised, and estimates put the number of participants at 13,225.

The walks began this morning and will continue throughout the day.

The Call it Out protesters gathered at St Benedict’s Church were on the route taken by the Greater Easterhouse Truth Defenders District 17.

Call it Out confirmed that it would oppose the protests in numerous locations, along various marching routes.

A Call it Out spokesperson described the plan to execute “peaceful vigils outside all Catholic Churches affected.”

The group said: “CIO and other citizens requested that three anti-Catholic marches make minor detours to avoid passing Catholic Churches.

“This was a fair, proportionate, and human rights-based request that would have balanced the rights of all including anti-Catholic organisations.”

Another spokesperson for the Grand Orange Lodge of Scotland said: “We look forward to the pageantry, the colour, and music and welcome the supporters of the Loyal Orange Institution who turn out to watch and enjoy the spectacle.”

The Orange Order had said ahead of the marches that it did not believe Scotland had an issue with sectarianism, and denied that the group was anti-Catholic.
