Young people speaking their mind. But as understanding of these things grows among the general public, through social media, through journalists and researchers who dedicate themselves to exposing the truth. When the general public start to pay more attention than lip service to democracy, the elite know they have problems and they are not going to deal with these problems by stepping back and taking a recount of how the public are treated in the unbalanced world of commerce. Rather they are going to step forward and recount how the public can be controlled by the age old device of the police.

If when a cop kills somebody and the public holds a vigil for the victim, the police will come and destroy that too. You got to ask yourself what kind of society are we turning into. When the lying git in Downing street continues to make a mockery out of the democratic process, you could even find yourself in jail if you protest that. Every time Priti Patel opens her mouth it is never to apply some logic to why people are on the street, but to change a law that will stop their right to do so. All the government have left to defend their draconian practice of blaming the victim for the problems they saddle us with every day is – new police powers. If history has anything to remind us, it is. That this is precisely why the police were invented. To protect the rights of the elite to rule over us. The only right the police authority have, from their conception is the right to do what they are told. But we the public, the rabble, the citizen, have always had the right to protest, it was not given, it is a basic principal of democracy, and without it we can not call ourselves a democracy but an oligarchy.
Kill the Bill Protest while you still can. George Square this Saturday 15th 2:00
The course of the industrial revolution should have taught us how materially finite the worlds resources are. The information revolution should have helped us to relieve the pressure on these resources. Instead it is been used to squeeze the last wee bit of toothpaste from the tube, till all we are left with is the plastic. But one of the things we do have in abundance is imagination. We can either use it, as up to now, in imagining a technological savour is going to appear and tell us everything will be ok, and carry on regardless. Or we can use it as part of a human plan in endeavours that we know are right, achievable and on our own doorstep. Continue reading →
The original editions of the Keelie were first published in the 1990s around the same issues we are even more concerned about today. Many of the contributors from then are still involved in the last twenty five issues of the new Keelie we have produced so far. So there is plenty of scope for inclusion in creating content, website work, video and distribution and a wealth of knowledge and experiences within the group we are happy to share with folk. glasgowkeelie.org

The beast here refers to any kind of agency private or otherwise that is a threat to public agency and the common good. The common good being that which we own, institutions and assets in the collective public interest. Continue reading →

Six Degrees Of Separation
This website started with the idea of doing a project about climate towards the COP 26 in Glasgow. The idea was. How do we engage ordinary people in the climate debate. How do we convince ordinary people that we all have some skin in the game. What are the connections that directly relate to peoples day to day experience that would help them to put climate at the top of the agenda.
What happened to citizenship, as in a responsible citizen of a place, city, a community? What happened to the civic imagination? in this regard What is it we need to ask ourselves? That is what we want to look at here.
CityStrolls-REPLAY: How many ambulances and paramedics are available during a pandemic, masks, ventilators, beds, psychiatrists, workers? Compared with. How many policemen can turn up instantly. How many cops does it take to kettle some peaceful protesters, while allowing other drunk nutters to run riot. The “emergency services” have become the “police services”. If the efficiency of military tactics shown in West George Street where applied to human rights, the health services, mental health, social housing there would be no reasons to see militarised swat teams on our streets. If we don’t become part of the solution – Get used to it. As the UK is using the same US approach to militarising the police and have been, at least over the last ten or fifteen years.
