Delighted to see that two police officers are now being investigated for perjury relating to one of the cases concerned with the Kettling and harassment Celtic fans suffered on the Gallowgate in March 2013.
A public meeting on ‘The Act, Policing and Civil Liberties in Scotland’ will be held in St Anne’s School in Crownpoint Road, Glasgow on Wednesday 10th June at 7 pm.
As long term supporters of Fans Against Criminalisation (FAC), this site welcomes and supports the statement by Celtic FC restating the club’s opposition to the Offensive Behaviour At Football And Threatening Communications Act 2012.
Hail, Hail, just a short one. I was sent this link to a judgement in appeal over case of Celtic fans being charged/convicted of singing Roll of Honour. Regardless of your personal opinion on whether this song is offensive or should be sung at football games, the main point of contention here is contained in Section 8 of the judgement.
Scotland can be a crazy place at times, but now it’s bordering on bizarre !
On a day when an STV journalist managed to shoehorn a question about Celtic and Irish Republicanism, (this during a press conference about a new kit sponsor) I was drawn via Twitter to an article in the Scotsman.
I hope many of you have now seen the video published by STV last night. Being personally involved I have to say that while it was good in dispelling some of the myths about the Green Brigade it failed to really focus on the most important part, and that was the visit to Holyrood. However I know there is plenty of footage ‘in the can’ and I hope there is a follow up which focuses on the main reasons that has led us there on several occasions since 2012. The Offensive Behaviour At Football And Threatening Communications Act.
