Dozens of people attended an anti-Brexit rally in Dundee on Saturday.
The event was organised EU Citizens for and Independent Scotland and featured a host of speakers including Glasgow Lord Provost Eva Bolander, Scottish Greens co-convener Maggie Chapman and broadcaster Billy Kay.
Dundee’s two MP, the SNP’s Chris Law and Stewart Hosie, also addressed the crowds in Albert Square.
Mr Law said the EU citizens contributed £100 billion to the UK economy between 2000 and 2010 and that a quarter of students at Dundee’s two universities originally come from outside the UK.
He added: “Dundee has a proud history as a European city and as a home for Europeans and others from many different countries, whether it was welcoming immigrants looking for work and study or those fleeing persecution.
“We have benefited from EU citizens working and living in the UK.
“I want to reassure everybody that me and my colleagues will fight tooth and nail for every single one of you living here.”
Dundee East MP Stewart Hosie said people the “length and breadth of the UK” will suffer because of the vote to leave the EU but pro-Brexit leaders like Boris Johnson will not.
Mr Hosie said GDP, productivity and wages will all fall after the UK leaves the EU, which he described as the world’s most successful multi-nation trading bloc.
He said: “We have to celebrate that we are all European citizens.
“Each and every single one of us have rights and obligations accrues through decades of EU membership.
“At the top of those is the right to free movement, the right to travel, study or work in any other country with open borders.
“Yes, free movement is about good and capital but fundamentally it is about people’s rights.”
He added Scotland’s “lifeboat” would be independence.
The crowd was also entertained by a group of Polish traditional dancers.
Following the rally, there was a fun day at the Tayside Deaf Hub, featuring games, face painting and food.
Billy Kay also gave a talk on Scotland’s links with Europe.
