FAC Demo Doomed To Fail

FAC public demo 06-04-2013
Stand Up For Your Rights

Saturday’s Fans Against Criminalisation demo to be held in George Square, Glasgow at 12.00 noon is doomed to fail and nothing will change.

However that is only if fans do not bother to turn up. It is vitally important that as many supporters as possible make it to the square for 12.00 on Saturday. Many supporters have a bit of travelling to do in order to attend Celtic games but it would be great if these fellow supporters could leave home a bit earlier if at all possible to help fill the square.

If we can get 10,000 + in the square that would send out a clear message that the current harassment of football fans must end and the Offensive behavior at football part of the Bill must be repealed. The other benefit of a large turnout would be to ensure the demo makes the national UK mainstream news shows. We know we will be well represented on the web by our bloggers etc but making the national news would be a great bonus and help heap more pressure on the Scottish government to scrap this useless and undemocratic piece of legislation.

So please if you can make it come and stand with your fellow supporters and help bring an end to the harassment of football supporters.

Thank You

PS. Sorry about the tabloid type headline we just want to catch as many fans attention as possible 🙂

  1. Good God, JasCam, please do not do that to me again. I have had to change the old breeks. That heading was terrifying as I thought you were about to expose some major collapse of the demo. Thankfully you are not actually adding to the pessimism of this last twelve months but merely attempting to rally the troops. I wish all of you every success. I share your hopes that this stupid, stupid legislation is recognised for the useless waste of time and effort that it is and is resigned to the scrap heap as soon as possible. If only other fans could lend support and recognise that this legislation impinges on the freedom and dignity of every football supporter not just those who occupy 111 at Celtic Park. This is a cause for all who want the fans to continue to follow the greatest sport in the world. It is a cause that should be recognised at every level of the game not just among fans. If it is left to fester in the hands of the police and legislators, then I fear following football in this country will become nigh impossible nor desirable for reasonable and decent people. Look to your pockets you chairmen, CEOs and directors! Those who do not accept that differences need to be set aside in this battle for true justice deserve to be left to choke and drown in the stinking quicksand of this legislation, born solely of the womb of unjustified and ill conceived knee-jerk reaction. And I make a plea to Celtic supporters that they see this as a universal aberration and not just an issue for the Green Brigade or any other minority group in any club.

    Every success to those who represent us on Saturday at George’s Square. An hour from your lives could mean a lifetime of freedom from harassment for everybody. Gratitude goes out to you from those of us who for one good reason or another simply can not be with you. Our moral support stands strongly at your sides. Thank you and I really wish I could be there with you.

      1. Aye, but remember my dicky ticker, Jas. It got me reading though – aye, very quickly. Mind, I had to take a hard copy to the loo 🙂
