Better together I think not they are burning the Scottish flag in George square, nazi salutes towards war monuments, there was stabbings of yes voters and these are the people who won? This is why I was a yes! I want to feel safe in my country and tonight I don’t. Also of course the news are saying it’s all very peaceful and friendly!!!
seems like we’re up shit creek without a paddle now
Scottish people, please take care if you are non-white, are, or appear, non-unionist or own any Yes pins / badges / bumper stickers / whatever, especially if you live in a large city.
The Scottish people are terrified. Wheres the English Government now? Do we not deserve protection from what you caused?
Shit’s seriously going down in Scotland, George Square, Glasgow. Smoke bombs and racial abuse being thrown at Yes voters by Unionists.
I’ve also heard of knife action and unionists actually waiting for the yes voters in order to attack and intimdate them. Insults being thrown around include…
A referendum happened to decide whether or not Scotland split from the UK. The votes came in - Scotland is still part of the UK.
Today at 12 a bunch of member of the Orange Lodge (look it up - protestant extremists who also like to hang around with the KKK sometimes it turns out) decided to gather in George Square (the main square of Glasgow) to celebrate, as these guys are unionists. They are also sectarian racist fascist homophobic bigot losers. The Scottish Defence League (equivalent to the English Defence League, who are basically Nazis) decided to join them. They started shouting abuse at everyone. Called a gay pro-independence politician a poofter and kept telling everyone that didn’t resemble them to fuck off. Things got heated and they attacked some Yes folk, as far as I can tell. Fights broke out. One of them attacked a guy with a flare. BBC news reported this as “protests of the results” despite the instigators being supporters of the winning side. This was maybe around 4. They didn’t report anything else until maybe about 10 when things had been violent for at least 3 hours. Policemen on horses everywhere. People singing sectarian chants. Nazi salutes. Beating the shit out of kids, a Yes campaigner got stabbed.
Basically fascists and bigots using their newfound confidence and morale boost from remaining a part of the UK to instigate a huge fight. It’s pretty much a riot. Streets blocked off. It’s not just happening in Glasgow but Glasgow has a larger population than most places and so the gathering here is rather noticeable.
It’s still going. It doesn’t really feel safe around here.
And while fascists are literally beating the shit out of Yes voters the government decides to revoke Scottish powers - Scottish MPs no longer have a say in the Westminster budget (considering that Scotland’s budget is 10% of this it actually removes Scotland’s control of it’s own budget). This is in direct defiance to what they said they’d do in the case of a No vote - that Scotland would get more powers. So while English politicians are crushing the hopes and morale of the Scottish people fascists are trying to cave in their skulls.
Some of this might be incorrect. I’ve been getting most of my info from social media and ‘official’ media does not report on Scottish matters in a way that reflects the truth so if I’m misinformed someone please correct me!
Wanted to wake up in a Scotland that was hopeful about a prosperous future and instead Glasgow is burning.
its not safe to wear a yes badge in Glasgow tonight, someone has been stabbed and there are literal fascists flooding our streets. the English defence league and orange order are in George square giving nazi salutes and burning Scottish flags. this is what it’s come to a day after the vote, a day after a no vote happening. stay safe all of you.
Sky news just spoke to a reporter in Glasgow and had to cut the live thread because he was attacked and shouted at by no voters, waving the British flag, doing nazi salutes and burning the saltire.
