Fans Unity Required

police baton charge celtic fans
Is this Scotland or China ?

As the ripples from Saturday’s attack on civil liberties start to spread across the globe with several major media outlets now taking an interest we Celtic fans now have a window of opportunity to demand change in Police tactics and the full repeal of the first part of the Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening Communications Bill. We also have a right to demand that those running our club give us their full support and backing.

This bill as predicted on here and other places has nothing to do with curbing sectarian hatred and everything to do with the oppression of human rights. The thin edge of the wedge of a Police State Scotland.

I would go as far as to say that all football fans must unite to have this legislation scrapped asap. It’s clear from several people I have been in contact over the weekend including a prominent QC that Rangers fans groups and others are coming under increasing harassment by the Police all around Scotland.

What happened on Saturday was a reflection of all that is wrong in Scotland under an SNP administration. Any chance they had of me voting Yes in a referendum has gone. I will consider voting yes if I get a promise that another party will campaign for power post referendum and will repeal this terrible legislation and return the Police to doing their real jobs which is keeping citezens safe.

I have sent an official complaint to Strathclyde Police (details below). I have also sent copies to my MP, MSP and MEP. This attack on civil liberties cannot stand unchallenged.

If anyone is in doubt that senior people at Celtic and some fans association are actively involved in helping the Police or turning a blind eye I suggest you listen to the following section of the Celtic Dreams Pod cast from the weekend

  1. I like a good conspiracy, the treatment of the Green Brigade is (in my opinion) a deflection tactic used many times in history to take your eye off whats really happening to this country. They are doing this for the very reason you stated in your blog Jascam…………. so that no one will vote yes to independance. I can’t stand the SNP or Mr fishy but will always vote for independence THEN get shot of them. Keep the faith Hail Hail

  3. There seems to be an agenda behind the harassment of the GB and many other things that have reared their ugly heads since the breaking of the Oldco tax story, I watched as incompetence at the highest levels both political and football related reached levels I still find hard to swallow. Each and everyone of these occurrences seemed to be designed to cause as much controversy and division amongst the population of Scotland. I have no doubt that there attempts to scupper the Independence vote. Look back on history to see what happens to countries that try to wriggle out from mother England’s caring embrace. I bet you will be hard put to find one that did not end in civil unrest if not war. Look what happened to India, Ireland and countless other states who demanded control of their own natural resources.
