Glasgow – 8 January: Freedom Rally

Glasgow – 8 January: Freedom Rally

From the Daily Record…

HUNDREDS of anti-vaxxers ignored arrest warnings from cops for endangering public safety during a protest march.

A large crowd with placards opposing vaccines, passports, mask wearing, and lockdowns gathered at Glasgow Green [yesterday].  Click here to read more

Editor writes…

As you will hear in the video embedded in the Daily Record report, Police Scotland issued a warning to both organisers and participants that they may be arrested for joining this “unplanned” march.  My immediate – common sense – thought was, why on earth did the organisers not seek permission, given that the Orange Order gets permission every year for a number of marches throughout the city.  They can’t say “we didn’t ask because we wouldn’t get” permission – that’s plain silly.  They should have asked and then the City  Council would have had a case to answer.

There was one priest in the crowd, with people all around thanking him for being present.  At last!  Some sign of concern and energy from the Catholic clergy. Deo gratias!

      I’m halfway through that article, which makes extremely interesting reading.

      In the meantime, I’d be interested in your thoughts about the uprising in Glasgow yesterday – i.e. the freedom rally and procession.

    I am relieved to see that the Scots are also getting serious about this totalitarian technocracy which is being forced on the world. The resistance is happening on a global scale.

    There will be another freedom rally in London later this month as well, and I am pleased to say that there is an active group from Tyburn Convent which regularly attends these marches under a banner of Our Lady (among others). They join the rally from Marble Arch after a time of adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and go with Mother’s blessing.

    What we are witnessing in our nations is the imposition of the United Nations’ “Agenda 21”, which is being pushed by the global elites under the auspices of the World Economic Forum. “Covid” and “Climate Change” are the events/strategies which they are exploiting to impose massive social and economic change with ultimate goals to bring about total societal control and population reduction. Resisting the vaccine passports/digital ID’s is one of the practical things that we can do at the local level to prevent their takeover coming to pass.

    A very good analysis of the WEF’s plans is presented in the video below. It sounds a bit “tin-foil hat conspiracy theory”, but all the strategies discussed are taken from publicly available UN and WEF literature. If you find it useful, please share it around to wake people up to what is going on. The young man being interviewed is a Christian of some sort and it is interesting to hear him set this all in the context of the undermining of the family, morality and the Church, and the attempt to eliminate Christianity from the Western World:

    (P.S. if you think I am a wacko conspiracy theorist, I will not be offended. I have been wrong about things before – at least once, anyway! 😉 )

    The organisers should have said it was a BLM march. They would have had no police opposition – in fact, they would have had support. Amazing how the police – who are not medics or clerics – have been co-opted into taking sides on moral / medical issues in which they have little or no knowledge and certainly no jurisdiction.

      I managed to have a conversation with two male police officers, who were very polite and reasonably receptive to the few points I put to them. Not so, the female officer with whom I spoke shortly afterwards. She said she hadn’t a clue what I was talking about. Poor soul. Must be awful to be so out of touch with reality 😀

    Deacon Augustine,

    That the Tyburn nuns take part in the freedom processions in London, with a banner has made us think here – maybe we’ll give that some more thought. However, we’d need to get in touch with the organisers to suggest some improved “customer service”, since there was a marked lack of communication yesterday, at Glasgow Green. Long story, won’t go into it, but, first up, we would need to be sure that we had official permission and then everything else would fall into place: “For the children of this world are wiser in their generation than the children of light.” (Luke 16:8)

    Stay tuned!

    PS As for being a conspiracy theorist – as someone on GB News pointed out recently, it’s not so long ago that vaccine passports were dubbed a conspiracy theory. So it’s a great label to have these days because it means “someone who is ahead of the game”!

      What angers me is those Toilet Rolls that pass of as Newspapers keep saying Anti Vax . None of us are Anti Vax as these Mengele Injections we know are NOT vaccines. We are certainly Anti Cannibalism as Bishop Schneider pointed out.
      Just watched Neil Olivers latest Video where He talks about the Parrots . Trudeau. Macron. Boris Etc all saying the same garbage. Trudeau has said that those who don’t take the Mengele Injections are Racist and Women Haters. Macron has said that anti Mengele Injection People aren’t now French Citizens and Boris has said we’re all Mumbo Jumbo.
      The 3 of them wouldn’t get into a Real Mans Club. Probably that’s How their all of the Special Handshake Squad.

        I saw that Neil Oliver monologue, which was great, but I can’t find it on YouTube. However, Neil went on, in the same show (dated yesterday, 8 January) to interview Dr Mike Yeadon, and it is very interesting, indeed. See below…

      A friend of mine says he’s going to have to make up some new conspiracy theories, because all the ones he’s had to date have come true!

      Sorry if I gave the impression that the Tyburn nuns themselves went on the rally – they didn’t – I believe they are cloistered. It was a group of lay people who assist at Mass at Tyburn who represented them.

      As for “getting in touch with the organisers”, that wont be possible. There are no organisers for any of these rallies. That way nobody can be prosecuted for organising them! They are “spontaneous” gatherings of tens of thousands of people who wish to protest the totalitarian injustices which are being forced on our countries. Mainstream media and big tech all collude to remove any advertisements for the events (being paid/pressured by our governemnts to do so), so the only publicity for them tends to be by “word of mouth” on social media. There is a You-Tube channel called “Pandemic Podcast” which tries to promote the rallies – although its probably only a matter of time before they get “taken down.”

      They attract a very mixed bag of the population ranging from church groups, anti-communists, anti-fascists, libertarians, military veterans, healthcare workers, disabled groups to professional nutters like Piers Corbyn and Katy Hopkins. So if anybody were to take part they could guarantee to be mixing with strange bedfellows!

        Deacon Augustine,

        Now that you mention it, I vaguely remember that the nuns didn’t actually participate, but think I am right in saying that they were interviewed supporting a London march. I tried to find it on YouTube but this is all I can find on one of my quicker than quick searches…

    Excuse me, folks, but I’ve just stumbled across this parade on YouTube – today, it seems, in Glasgow – can you believe. Obviously, Glasgow City Council gave THEM permission; there are no police announcements threatening arrests, so – as I have already said – the organisers of any freedom rallies really MUST seek permission and if refused, take the Council to court under discrimination legislation.

    I’m not sure how many know of the UK Prays initiative that started last week. Basically a lay-led public outdoor rosary that happens weekly in the public square rain ior shine, lockdown or no lockdown. Anyone can set one up. There have been 3 new towns join this week. Perhaps there is someone here who’d like to begin things where they are? The idea is modeled on the public rosaries in Austria. To help get us out of this mess that Church and State are in.

      Andrew Q,

      That’s certainly something worth investigating. I visited but a couple of things are mystifying.

      Firstly, they quote Padre Pio (not Our Lady of Fatima, who said that the Rosary has been given a new efficacy for these times) as the source of their promotion of the Rosary. Now, I avoid quoting Padre Pio on anything because he is credited/blamed as saying certain things which are – at best – dubious. Can’t think of any examples right now, but there have been enough for me to decide not to quote him, without cast iron evidence that he actually said this or that. So, that’s first.

      Secondly, we know that once the Consecration of Russia has been effected, peace will be restored to both Church and world, an end to the current diabolical disorientation around us – which includes the restoration of our freedoms, i.e. the defeat of the current attempts to spread Communist totalitarianism across the world, so, in my humble view, every rosary should be offered for the primary intention of the Consecration of Russia, and everything else is secondary.

      So, while I think the idea, the initiative is a good one, if we do that, our intention will be the Consecration of Russia and our placards will consist, primarily, of the key reminder that our freedoms come from God, not any Government.

      Thank you again, though, for posting that link – at least they stick to the traditional mysteries, absent the Gluminous! Deo gratias for that!

    Well done to the people on the march, hopefully Elsie McSelfie (Sturgeon) will take note.

    Although not yet ideal, restrictions in England are gradually being eased such that there is a ‘freedom gap’ opening up between England and Scotland.

    As long as Elsie and her cabal continue to maintain more severe restrictions in Scotland, then I hope these marches and initiatives grow and become more vigorous.

      I’ve never heard of this Party in Scotland – have you?

    I’ve never heard of the Scottish Libertarian Party but I thought that man, the leader, spoke really well and since he’s not a Sturgeon fan, I’m all for his party, LOL!

      I looked up the Scottish Libertarians and they seem to be pro-life. This is the first thing under the heading Natural Rights:

      3.3.1 Right to Life: Each individual has the right to their existence and their body. No one can rightfully lay claim to the lives of others without their consent.

      I’d never heard of them before watching that GB news clip. I do like the sound of them.

    The Freedom rally is being covered in England. I hope this man is right about the Scots waking up. I wonder.

    If you wish to have a “rally” without a permit in Scotland you can march to George Square, or wherever, with black masks, hoodies or balaclavas, preferably if your favourite football team wins a game and you will be accompanied there by the police. When there: you can throw pyros, bottles, bricks and traffic cones at the spectating police and they won`t bat an eyelid. With a bit of luck you may find yourself on the plinth at the Duke of Wellington statue alongside an “off duty” policeman who only gets a rap over the knuckles (the knuckles must be involved) at a later “disciplinary hearing”.

    The only snag/advantage is that you must be able to sing the Famine Song to get these dispensations.

    The awful Lorraine Show on ITV, with the even more awful Dr Hilary Jones, has been given a rap on the knuckles by Ofcom after thousands of complaints at false information about the unvaccinated on one of their shows.

    The sugary Lorraine and the phoney Dr Jones, are truly insufferable people. They will be fully exposed in the end, like all the rest of the idiots driving this whole Covid and vaccination propaganda.

    I’ve just posted this on the “Vaccine Priest Criticised Hierarchy” thread but it fits here as well. It’s Dan Wootton of GB News saying what we have been saying all along- we must NOT co-operate any longer with this nonsense, we must not accept restrictions on our freedom; this is true for us in Scotland, especially, now that Sturgeon is insisting that mask wearing continues in Scotland for years to come. If you are still stupid enough to go about the place with your face covered, then take if off now, in a “yeah right” message to the anything but dear leader Stalin Sturgeon…

    Sturgeon wants us to live like this, under restrictions, forever. She really is a born dictator. She’s never going to give up her stranglehold over our lives. This is pure evil.

    Here’s the Scottish Government determined to keep the fear well and truly stoked… Notice: Jason Leitch is a dentist by profession, advising Stalin Sturgeon the Covid virus – truly, you could not make this stuff up, although, as you are about to read, Leitch does… I think it’s generally believed by “the science” that variants weaken, they don’t get stronger…

    Nicola is getting it in the neck from Dan Wootton on GB News again, well deserved!
