Arrangements for the Fans against Criminalisation Rally on Saturday in George Square are moving towards completion. Assemble at 12
and the speakers will begin at 12.30. The Rally will be introduced by a FAC representative and confirmed speakers are Michael McMahon MSP and Jeanette Findlay, FAC. We hope to have a legal/civil rights speaker but that is still to be finalised. We have discussed the arrangements for the use of the Square with Glasgow City Council (including the speakers’ platform and a sound system) and discussions continue regarding the movement of fans from George Square to Celtic Park afterwards.
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that the current harassment of football fans must end and the Offensive behavior at football part of the Bill must be repealed.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.
PS. Sorry about the tabloid type headline we just want to catch as many fans attention as possible 🙂
