WHERE ARE WE GOING TODAY?
WHERE SHALL WE EXPLORE? :D
I know Scotland is a small country but we are going through something massive right now. In two days there is a referendum on whether we should become an independent country.
This is big and it is important because for 300 years we have been under the thumb of various…
I think I’ve got my point across.
NO ONE wanted this.
But I’d be lying if I said no one saw this coming.
A saltire was burned today. I’m still disgusted. People have been stabbed and beaten today. Nazi salutes were thrown infront of a war memorial today. Young people have had abuse hurled at them left and right. Do not ignore this. Do not ignore what’s happening in Glasgow tonight.
No Voters Surrounding Young Girls, rip Saltire out of their hands in George Square.
This is what the BBC are couching as a ‘boisterous and good natured celebration.”
This is what The Guardian are calling “some young men” who “appear” to be violent.
This is the nasty fucking scar that English attitudes leave on a country and that won’t be properly addressed by the press or any politician in Westminster.
People are getting hurt, stabbed and beaten, having slurs thrown at them and the BBC calls it a “celebration”.
The photos and stories I am being sent by friends are nothing short of terrifying. This is not a party, this is violence.
Everyone on my fb feed this morning.
this is what is going on in scotland right now.
dont ignore this.
there is NO coverage of the rioting on the news which is why its so important that you dont ignore this.
please stay safe if you live in scotland.
my partner actually went to the yes rally in george square a couple days ago and said the no guys were indeed doing nazi salutes
just so you know what is going on in my country right now:
- votes came in for independence 45% yes 55% no
- media very “”no”” centred and bias
- unionists are now attacking yes voters
- a seventeen year old girl has been stabbed
- they are burning our saltire giving nazi salutes
- our first minister resigns
please signal boost this
at what point did we become a nation so riddled with fucking morons?
i’ll tell you; when the bbc stopped being neutral, when the daily mail started being scared of youths/gays/muslims, when the sun started making headlines instead of writing them, when our politicians went into business purely…
The Washington Times have tonight released an ‘editorial’ piece entitled “Scotland, Saved From Succession” where they have used a photograph of the bigots who are rioting right now, circling around a flare, with the caption: “Supporters of the No vote in the Scottish independence referendum circle round a flare as they gather to celebrate the referendum result in George Square, Glasgow, Scotland, Friday, Sept. 19, 2014. Following a long night that brought floods of relief for some and bitter disappointment for others, Scotland awoke with a hangover Friday after voting to reject independence. Now, the task was to heal the divide — and use the energy the referendum unleashed to hold London politicians to promises of more powers for Scotland. “

Fred Ritchin’s 2011 talk about What’s Next for photography is something I am using as a reference for my dissertation, so it has been playing a lot on my mind recently.
He highlights how news outlets manipulation of truth and the change of intent of the photographers when they publish photographs. He talks about the strength of the public who have camera phones - the people’s journalists.
This may have been three years ago but it is SO relevant to what is going on right now and I urge anyone even slightly interested in this topic to give it a watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKVjSwYsIak
I have zero trust in global media outlets right now and 100% trust in the power of social media as the only well rounded view of current events.
Scotland’s eyes are wide open now - and by goodness we won’t be shutting them to this disgusting misrepresentation any time soon.
