On the 26th of December 2012 Celtic defeated Dundee 2 – 0 at Dens Park. That night a Dundee official said he had witnessed the worst football violence since the 1970’s .
Peter Lawwell was so incensed that he asked the ticket office to supply him with the names of all season ticket holders for section 111 who had tickets for that game. Why he never just asked for the names of every season ticket holder who was there is so far a mystery. The following day bloggers, journos and ex Celtic players who were not present had a dig at our support for this ‘riot’. Continue reading “The Dundee Riot ?”
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. Continue reading “Good Turnout at St.Mary’s for FAC”
Les Gray, who recently retired as chairman of the Scottish Police Federation was on BBC Newsnight Scotland spinning like a spider on Speed. Quite frankly Mr Gray came across as a petty minded man churning out the party line with no real substance to his rent a gob statements.

Sir’s, I would like to draw your attention to the incident which took place in the Gallowgate area of Glasgow on Saturday 16th of March 2013 between 12.50pm and 2.10pm where my wife and myself witnessed what can only be described as over the top Police tactics perpetrated against a peaceful group of Celtic fans and some members of the general public.

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. Continue reading “Fans Unity Required”
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.
