Seriously guys don’t ignore this like the media is.
The City Centre of Glasgow is over run with protesters, people are setting off flares and attacking each other, police tried to form a human barrier to prevent the rioters from spreading, Unionists were burning the Saltire, there are claims that someone may have been stabbed. And the news sites aren’t reporting this.
This city was my home for half a year and it’s absolutely killing me that people aren’t paying attention to what’s going on right now.
Seriously, I watched major news channels for three hours today and this is getting ignored. Only sky news mentioned this, but called it “good humoured” and “boisterous.”
Please get out of the city centre, or if you have to be there, avoid Buchanan Street and George Square. Be safe!
Don’t watch the link I posted if violence is triggering.
Right, speaking as a Scot let me set the record straight.
This is a very small minority of places, and the bad stuff is being conducted by a small number of skinheads that are frankly looking for a fight. The police closed down an area of the city centre of Glasgow to just diffuse things before they began. We’ve been in more danger with football riots and neo-nazi marches than we have with this.
I’m mainly saying this to try to dispel the notion that these people are indicative of typical Yes or No voters. These are a very small proportion of people who are infuriated that a fair and democratic process didn’t go their way, or are gloating about the fact that it did. They’re simple thugs. The Scottish police service are an overall pretty decent bunch, and can deal with this accordingly.
EDIT: I’m getting pretty damn tired of seeing tumblr try to play this up like this almost as bad as Ukraine, or the old troubles in Ireland, or somehow more awful and chaotic than other places in the world right now. It’s seriously not.
And yeah, a lot of the “rioters” and assholes here are Yes voters, too.
With all due respect, tumblr, this is getting extremely melodramatic and I’m fucking tired of people starting to comment on my nation and politics without really understanding the nuances of it and deciding they’re going to be outraged on my behalf.
The Black King and Black Queen are the only royal couples in my hearts.
