8 January, 2022: Glasgow Green Freedom Rally

8 January, 2022: Glasgow Green Freedom Rally

Catholic Truth supporters plan to attend the Freedom Rally at Nelson’s Monument, Glasgow Green, on Saturday, 8 January, 2022.

We hope to pray the Rosary as we march and to distribute Fatima leaflets which are winging their way to us in the post, thanks to the kind efforts of our London blogger, Westminster Fly.

Hopefully, there will be a very good turnout, and we encourage our bloggers and readers to join us next Saturday, 1pm, at Nelson’s Monument, Glasgow Green.

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!  Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us!

    And for those of you who may be thinking that we really don’t need a Freedom rally in Glasgow, take a few minutes to watch the police in action in a pub in Glasgow on Hogmanay, of all days/evenings of the year…

    This is an awful state of affairs. I am ashamed of these members of our Scottish Police Force. You would think the people celebrating new year were hooligans. I feel that the people of Glasgow will not put up with this and now realize that this is not about a virus but much more and sinister too! This is a ‘political virus’ in order to control people and implement a new order of living.

      I could hardly believe what I was seeing: police officers assaulting and intimidating pensioners amongst others. That black woman WAS assaulted. Is this the SNP’s Scotland?!! No thanks to independence then, that’s for sure. It was like nazi Germany and present day Austria.

      Catherine and Crofterlady,

      I agree, it’s disappointing to see the way those officers behaved in that pub, but I think we need to beware of tarnishing all officers with the same brush.

      To be fair, at the best of times the police have a hard job to do, and now they’re caught up in this imposition of rule by diktat, by the Scottish (and other) Government(s) it may be that they feel they’re in a situation where it’s a case of “damned if they do, damned if they don’t.”

      Those of us who decide to participate in the Freedom rally on Saturday, would be well advised to avoid all confrontation with the police. Best to give them the benefit of any doubt, so, let’s be co-operative if we find ourselves challenged in any way.

      Given the chance, though, I’d like to remind officers that they won’t always be members of the police force and encourage them to reflect on the kind of society in which they want their own children and grandchildren growing up.

    ‘Glasgow Smiles Better’ and ‘People Make Glasgow’ – What will the future moto of Glasgow be?

    The Glasgow Coat of Arms “Let Glasgow Flourish through the preaching of Thy Word, and the praising of His name”. May be Glasgow would flourish if His word was preached and praised as it should be. Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us. St. Kentigern, Pray for us.

    I learned recently that the coat of arms is the first sentence from the sermon preached by Glasgow’s Patron Saint, St. Kentigern, known as the Bishop of Glasgow, St. Mungo, Feast day 13 January. I think we may have to invoke his help for Glasgow.

    Excuse my ignorance, but I found it hard to follow the dialogue. I haven’t a clue as to what the police were doing, why were they in that pub and why were they trying to arrest people who seemed to be quietly having a drink. I’m totally lost. What was going on here?

    Hi I have known and became friends with some of the people wno were in this restaurant that evening. Some of the people have spoke out in the streets of glasgow about the tyranny of the government, the vacines and education for children and provided excellent facts and data to back themselves up also informed many of us on common law.
    I believe they may have been targeted that evening. Can I ask if you could pray for them as I have attended many of there talks and few marches as they have been fighting hard and falsely arrested on other occasions.
    Thankyou so much

      I do believe this was a setup to set in motion for the rest of us, just like Australia, what the future will look like for us Scots.

      May be you would pass on this blog discussion thread to some of the people you know who were at this event, and so the may add to this discussion shedding more light on the event.

      I am pleased with the pub owner who didn’t stop the people coming to the bar for their orders. He let them act normally. I hope other business across Scotland will stand up against this tyranny. May be the owner will be able to come on.

    Here is the MainOnline Article on the subject of this unjust intrusion on a perfectly peaceful new year celebration:

    What an exhibition the Scottish police have made of themselves. Arresting pensioners and aggressively shoving them out of the pub. I have just returned to my native Scotland in the last few weeks to retire. I now wonder if I have done the right thing. The amount of police and vehicles was an eye opener. It is just a joke to try and get the police for a fight, burglary or a robbery.
    The biggest mistake by the politicians was to merge all the police forces into one force. It is now a police state.

      I agree

    There seems to be a lot of conflicting info about this pub incident.

    My original understanding was as per Catherine’s links above, that police had intervened because people had been seen dancing which managed to breach covid regulations for the specific venue.

    (How very presbyterian, eh, arrests made for dancing – lol – these romish practices must be eradicated).

    However, today the Police have issued a statement which now claims the incident was nothing to do with covid.

    They claim the incident started as a routine visit with officers appearing and asking the licensee to produce documentation. It is claimed the licensee would not co-operate and became abusive, which ultimately led the Police to prematurely close the venue and asking customers to leave. This is what led on to the confrontation with disgruntled patrons, who resented their evening being curtailed in this way.


    These kinds of surprise “check up” visits on licensed premises were very common when my father was a young police officer, (especially given the owner would often bestow free drinks on officers, to “keep them sweet”), but I must say I have never witnessed one in the modern day – despite being a veteran of the public houses of Glasgow. And especially not at 11.30pm, when Police are generally busy.

    Maybe the new account of circumstances is accurate, but of course authorities do not hesitate to lie when they want to conceal their actions. From the murky SNP named person scheme, to the Nazis herding people into gas chambers which they had been told were “shower rooms”.

      Gabriel Syme,

      I think this is a clear case of “who do you believe, me or your lying eyes?” (Groucho Marx).

      I didn’t hear anyone being abusive to the police, far from it. Everyone appeared to be co-cooperative.

      Your final paragraph nailed it.

    yes I will talk to them I’ll let them know we are concerned.
    I have sent a message to the man who was arrested and I’ll send one to the lady.

    I believe this was a deliberate visit which was planned to set the standards for the future so we will all take heed – fear tactics – Once you see what has happened in Australia, then there is no doubt in my mind. Who cares if people were dancing, just before Christmas, I heard it announced on the radio, that there was 50, 000 people attending a football game. There is no excuse for this behavior.from police. I don’t believe the police when they said the licensee became abusive. The police can say anything they like. I don’t trust the police as much as I used to, any more. The police cannot always be trusted, They are going along with this whole affair. What kind of future are they contributing to. They should be supporting the civilians against the tyranny of the government. May be the licensee doesn’t agree with the restrictions, which I would commend. We need more businessmen to stand up and reject this totalitarianism. There will be many businesses afraid to stand up for fear of their livelihoods being destroyed. There will come a time in the not too distant future where people in all walks of life will be standing up.

    The police have long been greater criminals than the criminals. I have nothing but the utmost disdain for these Nazis disguised as law officers. People need to start fighting back against this abuse of authority!

    January 2, 2022 at 11:07 pm
    • Catherine

      I agree with you. I don’t look at the police anymore with as much respect as I’ve always had for them, although I would always treat them with basic civility.

      Athanasius & Catherine,

      As I’ve said above somewhere, we might beware of tarnishing all police officers with the same brush. After all, every profession has its bad apples, notably teaching and even, shockingly, the priesthood. Policing is often a thankless job, with very difficult judgements to be made, lines to be drawn, so – notwithstanding the fact that there have been very clear bases of abuse of authority – I think as a general rule, we ought to cut the cops some slack.

    This sinister nonsense is becoming more nonsensical by the day.

    Get this…..

    German Euthanasia Clinics are rejecting unvaccinated customers and will only agree to kill those who have been vaccinated.


    (The Spectator is a pay site, but you can get several free articles per month).

    And it seems Dutch Police have brutally suppressed lockdown protests in Amsterdam, with scary pictures of people being beaten and/or savaged by Police dogs.

    • Lily

      That’s downright stupid – you can only kill yourself if you’ve been vaccinated. I’ve heard it all, now.

      The Dutch protests are interesting – what is truly frightening about this whole thing is the way the police have turned against the people across the world, to side with the governments. The whole situation is truly diabolical.

    Remember last year when Holy Mass was invaded by police officers in London wandering around the Sanctuary – these are very dark and sinister times.
    The useful idiots in the Scottish Parliamnet going along with these tyranical and idiotic mandates are at the root of it all. Are they bought? blackmailed? or just marxist freemasons?

      Yes, I well remember that shocking invasion of a Catholic church in London – with the full co-operation of both priest and people, which I equally remember only too well.

      Some good news in this clip where the news presenter shows the usual enthusiasm for further restrictions (to protect the NHS, of course, why else…) while the MP says “no!”

    It just really shows How competant Our Polis are 6 Vans why not 666 Vans the Polis do a great Job and if you Don’t Believe Me then wait until Your Home is about to Be Trashed By Drug Dealers and the same Drug Dealers threaten Your Life , and I mean Your Life . No joke they are about to Kill You if You get in their way ,in Anyway Shape or Form . So of course You call up the Polis and You Wait for even ONE in a Dinky Car to Appear. And You wait ,and You wait, and You wait and You wait. Then You have to sell your Home for £18.000 under the True Price because Your Life has been made a complete Misery. The Polis. It takes me all my Time not to swear .
    I personally wouldn’t give them the time of Day . As for being a Member of The Bricks and Mortar Brigade. I know not if that’s still not a Requirement. What I certainly do know. Is if one is a Polis and wants Promotion ( and what one doesn’t) then it’s definitely a Requirement to belong to The Bricks and Mortar Mob. Clean Aprons only of course.

    Just as a P.S. Does anyone know on Here if when your arrested you still have to give to the Polis Benevolent Fund ? O and just a warning to all Good Tradesmen out there. If a Polis Inspector EVER asks You to do work for Him. . REFUSE .

    This is the best MP in Westminster, IMHO. He speaks from the heart, without notes, too. If they really are going to replace Boris soon, I hope it’s with Sir Desmond Swayne.

    Yet again, Dan Wootton at GB News, takes aim at both Mark Drakeford, Welsh leader and Nicola Stalin Sturgeon, FM of Scotland. This segment includes coverage of the Glasgow pub police incident on New Year’s Eve (NYE)

    They really believe we are fools. We could always have immunity from the start, without the vaccine.

    A private cinema owner showed a documentary-film about covid against the NHS and has been charge £15, 000 plus a suspended sentence for playing the film. Reported on BBC and David Icke.

      David Icke is whacky – I’m surprised you’d post anything about him.

      Mind you, so is the BBC – LOL!
