Good Turnout at St.Mary’s for FAC #tcnfacfiles

Posted on

Delighted to report that from what I seen there was a great response today at the Fans Against Criminalisation evidence gathering session in regards of last weeks Gallowgate Tea Party (Kettle supplied) hosted by Strathclyde’s finest.

Anti Polis gear

As you can see from the picture I took some legal steps to hide my identity from any nosey coppers who might have been just ‘sort of’ hanging around. 🙂

I met and had a chat with some cracking people and acording to them the place had been busy from the moment it opened.

I’d like to thank all the people from FAC who gave up their free time to take evidence from supporters. Your hands must be sore.

Special Hail, Hail to Hugh,Danny and Angela it was nice to chat.

Hail Hail


Peaceful Fans Attacked and Harassed By Police #tcnfacfiles

The images included in the video below may cause embarrassment to Police Scotland and the SNP.

Police State Scotland

Well done to Alex Salmond you got your way and gave your Police force the powers to carry out state condoned thuggery on peaceful protesters. Today my wife ,myself , hundreds of fans and the general public seen the state’s boot boys in all their fascist glory.

How many times have you heard ‘everything was fine till the Police turned up’ ? Well that’s exactly what happened today. What should have been a peaceful march to Celtic Park from the Gollowgate was turned into a brutal assault on freedom of expression and legitimate non violent protest.

People were ‘kettled’, obstructed, harassed and assaulted by Strathclyde police some of whom were brought in from Ayrshire (wonder why?).

The most disgusting thing that happened was a guy with a very young kid who was no part of the fans group was told he would be arrested and his child given to social workers for simply walking down a street. I met the guy and he was as white as a sheet and his toddler was screaming. Keep People Safe ? Orwell would be impressed with that bit of double speak.

I’m still very angry. I’m also willing to swear under oath that I did not see one Celtic fan acting in an aggressive manner. The Police on the other hand did.

I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
