    such a needed campaign. i wish they’d have included native americans as well, though, as cultural appropriation of them in costumes is just as awfully common.

    It’s that time of year again when these go around. And I will keep reblogging them. And if I see the joke ones I am likely to rip them apart with prejudice.

    I will reblog this every year and unfollow anyone who posts joke fandom spinoffs of this very serious and important commentary.

  8. So, now Cameron has declared war. So his answer to try and stop terrorists attacking us is to attack them more and call them psychopaths. Why does the UK think they are so large and tough and try to always follow on the footsteps of the USA? I fear where this is going.

    An honest, first hand account of what has been happening in Glasgow, Scotland.

    I’ve spent the last few nights in George Square with my friends, taking photos and enjoying the atmosphere but tonight I was shocked and disgusted by the un-provoked, aggressive behaviour and violence of some people.


    On Wednesday night, there was a party. It was an energetic, well-spirited night. Thousands of people came together to celebrate the referendum and being Scottish. The entire thing was peaceful and there was at least triple the amount of people in comparison to tonight, yet there were almost no cameras and I didn’t see any media coverage.


    The morning that the final result of the referendum was announced a few Yes voters, feeling sombre, came together in the square to share their sadness, but also their optimism at the prospects of future change. They were playing music and sharing stories. No voters were joining in and again it was very peaceful and friendly, everyone just wanting what is best for their country.


    Then Friday night happened. What happened tonight does not represent the No/Yes voters at all. This was a mob. Not as large a mob that the media have painted but a mob all the same. Me and some friends went for some food, and came back to George Square at about 6pm to take photos, expecting more peaceful events but what we found was a very different atmosphere and the people from before, including children and musicians, had left after apparently being attacked with fireworks(I didn’t see this, someone told me later on so it might not be true). A small angry mob had gathered on the square. Unionists. They stood gloating over their victory, and walked the square intimidating everyone else, singing, chanting and making Nazi salutes. We just wanted to observe, standing opposite to the unionists, but we quickly realised they were surrounding us and a small group of Yes voters and being very aggressive. We got pressed in, a Union Jack flag was pushed into our backs and one of the men started screaming “Round them up! Round them up!”, it was pretty terrifying, we got out of the crowd and stood at the edge of the square watching but it became pretty obvious that Yes voters were outnumbered and anyone wearing anything remotely resembling the Saltire was a target. We took off our Yes badges and my friend even had to take off his blue checked shirt because he was being pushed around. Most of the Yes campaigners left after a while and the Square just became a mob of aggressive Unionists, surrounded by press. The media, were deplorable, they were chasing the crowd, giving them all the attention they possibly could. Vultures, feeding on the stupidity taking place. The mob loved the attention and kept their aggression on a high. They began to move off the Square and round to Buchanan Street, pushing Police Officers that tried to keep them in the Square and scaring the horses. At this point we left, I don’t know what happened after that but I’ve heard that there has been quite a bit of violence.


    I’ve lived in Glasgow for two years now and I love the city so much. It’s a peaceful, welcoming city yet what happened tonight is what the media have decided to report on. These people do not represent No voters. I’m disappointed and angry at the media for ignoring the number peaceful events in George Square over the past few days but flocking to the only one time that something remotely violent has happened.

    The Police did an incredible job. They were calm and brave, managing the crowd and preventing a full scale riot. I have a great amount of respect for them after witnessing how they dealt with tonight.

    These are some photos taken by Stuart McAlinden, Jordan McClymont and myself(Emma Dempsey) in George Square over the past few days.

    I know I have international followers who might not be aware of what exactly is happening in my country so I have done my best to put together this explanation which is very bare bones but I hope provides a good overview of the situation!! As some of you know I was a dedicated Yes supporter but I…

    CNN’s video explaining the referendum on independence today in Scotland opened with a clip from Braveheart and included a map that just forgot about Wales

    My god.

     

  13. I give up. Lol.

     


  14. Freedom!!! We Obviously Don’t Want That..

    I am genuinely gutted. We had a chance to gain proper democracy and be recognised and respected properly all over the world. And I believe that we will get a lot of backlash from this and we are one of the few countries to ever reject independence. We had a great show of democracy, however voted against it. Just look at your passports, I believe that chain will only get tighter and we will never have an opportunity to escape again.

    What an embarrassment. I’m ashamed to call myself Scottish after my country decided to be ruled by Westminster. A government we never voted for and people who have no idea what its like to be Scottish or even remotely working class. Hopefully one day in my lifetime we will be given the chance…

    Amen.
