Notification of Protest.

Location - In the vicinity of the Scottish Parliament, Holyrood, Edinburgh.

Date - Saturday, 30th June 2007. Time: Morning
(The planned date of the address by Queen Elizabeth in the Chamber of the Parliament building).
The planned protest is intended to express opposition to the presence of Queen Elizabeth in the Scottish Parliament.

Therefore the time and place of the protest is planned to, as far as possible, confront the Queen's physical presence in the Parliament building.

The Queen may have been invited by a majority of MSPs but she was NOT elected by the Scottish people and therefore her right to rule over Scotland is open to CHALLENGE, and that is the point of the protest, to challenge the Queen's rule over Scotland.

It is an anti-monarchy, pro-democracy protest.

The inspiration for the protest is the republican ideal - which is that a people, a nation, specifically, here, the Scottish people and nation should be entitled to elect our own head of state, a President and not have a monarch, Queen Elizabeth, or any other King or Queen, imposed upon us Scots without even being elected to the position of head of state.

Therefore I intend to protest at the above mentioned time and place and I invite all Scottish patriots or republicans from every nation in the world to attend this protest with me.

This was my protest the last time the Queen attended the Scottish Parliament -
Scottish Republican News - 2004

The last time I was ordered by the police to stand at a designated protest area beside Holyrood Palace, and I imagine that the police may wish to direct myself and other protestors similarly this time too.



and last time, if you remember, the Scottish Socialist Party and others organised a declaration of a Scottish Republic on Calton Hill.

The official details of the Queen's forthcoming visit are given by the Scottish Parliament website, here -
http://www.scottish.parliament.uk/nmCentre/news/news-07/pa07-050.htm

So please get yourselves organised and meet me outside parliament, or as close as the police will let us get, on Saturday 30th June.

FREEDOM!

No Slainte, Peter is in dead earnest and I for one wish him luck. Now if only we English could get her madge removed as head of state. There is something demeaning about being a 'subject' don't you think? :roll:

He seems a bit loopy to me.

Her Majesty has no direct executive power, though she can function as a true Head Of State with independent action should she wish to block reform or annulment of Britain's constitutional organisation.

Her Majesty, if she should be the recepient of a protest at all, should perhaps be confronted with disquiet over her complicity in signing away essential national sovereignty to the EU.

Her Majesty's position of endorsing the decisions of elected politicians fails her in her duty to protect our independence above all.

Lion rampant avatar, eh? Setting yourself a high standard to live up to. Ambitious. I like that.

Well satirists make serious points.

I would say I am more of a wanna-be satirist some of the time, depending on my humour or how creative am I feeling at the time.

For example, when the Queen visited the USA, I started off just plain angry then tried to produce something slightly satirical, though, as it used a British theme, it was somewhat lost on most Americans I think. See what you think - the Captain Scarlet video I mean ...

-------

Bush betrays Scottish, British etc. republicans (again). Queen Elizabeth @ the White House
Newsweek said:
Now it is the queen who is 81, and due to step onto American soil this week for the fifth time. Her six-day tour will include a trip to Virginia to mark the 400th anniversary of the Jamestown settlement, a visit to the Kentucky Derby and dinner at the White House with President George W. Bush—the 10th American president she has met as queen.
Royal Visit: Queen Elizabeth in America - Newsweek Society - MSNBC.com
Predictably enough, I sent the crockery flying on Rice for President Yahoo Group when the bad news about Queen Elizabeth’s visit to the USA broke, :x though I was reasoned enough to repeat the arguments I had deployed against the (November 2005) welcome Bush extended to Prince Charles. :cool:
However, it was not long before my creative genius was at work :prof and now I'm pleased to offer my latest music video for your enjoyment.
Video summary said:
Captain Scarlet Condi. Music video: Queen Elizabeth in the USA

[youtube]N-XBxRST0CI[/youtube]

Satirical music video on Queen Elizabeth's visit to the USA, as an evil Mysteron plot to pervert republican USA by putting Americans in a monarchist trance. Captain Scarlet to the rescue, but is our Condi the evil Captain Black (Mysteron Agent) or the good Captain Scarlet (Spectrum agent)? Watch the video and take your guess.
YouTube - Queen Elizabeth in the USA. "Captain Scarlet" Condi
Now I thought I had posted that Captain Scarlet/Queen/Condi video in this forum before but I can't find it, so I dunno. Maybe the mod deleted it 1st time. Some people are very protective about Queen Elizabeth - dunno why, she doesn't protect us.

''He seems a bit loopy to me.''

I agree Peter does comes across a little 'eccentric' ... but he does no harm and the place would be a damn sight poorer if we locked up all the cranks and after all, one man's loony is another man's hero.

''Her Majesty, if she should be the recepient of a protest at all, should perhaps be confronted with disquiet over her complicity in signing away essential national sovereignty to the EU.''

Yes, HRH Queen Brenda does remain remarkably reticent with regard to signing away our independence doesn't she? ... Can St. Anthony Blair have offered her something in the New Year's Honours list perhaps? :spin:

''Her Majesty's position of endorsing the decisions of elected politicians fails her in her duty to protect our independence above all.''

Quite.

OK thanks for the comments folks, now I have some more to add to my original post.

An open letter to the Members of the Scottish Parliament.
Dear MSPs,

I really must protest. (Notification of protest letter attached, as is a photograph of me protesting about the same thing in 2004)
The 3rd session of the Scottish Parliament has got off to just as bad a start as the previous two sessions.

You were not long in the door of the parliament before you were all swearing allegiance to Queen Elizabeth instead of to the Scottish people whom you should be serving but whom you seem to have turned your backs on already.

You’ve sold the people out for the Queen at the outset and now it seems you are intent on rubbing the Scots’ noses in your betrayal of us Scots in favour of Elizabeth by inviting that woman to address you in parliament on 30th June.

I can only assume that you have been very poorly educated and informed in your lives - but Queen Elizabeth has no right to be head of state of Scots as she has not been elected by the people of Scotland. For that reason and as experience of her unjust courts, her brutal police and her harsh prisons has taught those Scots who have dared to raise their voices in dissent, or dared to disobey her state, the Queen’s rule is undemocratic and an affront to the dignity of Scots.

You were elected - you should have rights to rule democratically in Scotland - the Queen was NOT elected and she should have no rights in our affairs - but the 3rd session of parliament seems intent on surrendering your rights, and those of the people of Scotland, over to her, Queen Elizabeth.

Therefore already the 3rd session of parliament is an embarrassment and a disgrace to the proud nation of Scotland with this display of the oppression of our nation under the Queen and under the royalist, fascist police state which serves the Queen and oppresses the people.

So I intend to protest against Queen Elizabeth attending parliament on the 30th June and if there is any single one of you who does not wish to be seen to betray the Scottish people then I suggest that you do not sit there like royalist lackeys listening to Queen Elizabeth but instead you PROTEST against the Queen and against the stupidity of your fellow MSPs for inviting that Elizabeth to rule Scotland when she has no business and no competence so to do.

Or if you are not brave enough to join me in protest then at least make your excuses for the 30th June and avoid sitting there before the Queen like royalist fools.

Do you honestly believe that you have yourselves a free parliament when in the 2nd session, 4 MSPs were banned from parliament for a whole month for daring to protest in parliament?

Those MSPs were not free to protest in parliament and you too may be denied the right to speak your mind or protest in parliament; denied ultimately by this Queen and by her officers who are loyal to her but disloyal to the freedoms of the Scots.

If you as a privileged member of parliament are not free to speak out and protest in parliament as you see fit - think how much more difficult it is for the rest of us Scots when we wish to speak out in protest. Very difficult.

Difficult though it may be, I as a proud Scot am not simply willing to surrender my freedoms and those of my nation to Queen Elizabeth and her state. Therefore I do intend to protest outside parliament on the 30th, even if you will not protest inside parliament.

You may be willing to betray the Scots for that Queen - I am not.

Yours sincerely,

Peter Dow,

Guide to Protest Ground Locations. Morning of 30th June 2007

G
The "greeting" or "grovelling" place. Where the former Presiding Officer George Reid bowed down before Queen Elizabeth in 2004 (view video) and where the new Presiding Officer Alex Fergusson may do the same on the morning of 30th June.

F
If I was in charge of Scottish "Freedom Fighter Forces", I think I'd probably place my snipers at the "Firing" places which are buildings which look to have the right field of view to take the Queen out when she was somewhere around place "G".
H
The "heckling" or "hit-man" place - a good place to infiltrate yourself along with well-wishers - keep a low profile until the Queen turns up then shout your protest or take your best shot at the Queen if you are an assassin.
P
The public entrance to the parliament
S
The screen place. Somewhere near here there will be a giant screen erected to broadcast the Queen's address to parliament. (Click for the latest on that from the official Scottish Parliament website.) Someone really should pull the plug on that!
A
Armed police - not just here, everywhere! There will be plenty about to protect the Queen. I suppose it is too much to hope that they would point their guns at the Queen instead of at peaceful protestors.


D
The designated protest place - where the police want all protestors to assemble, away from the crowds where they can keep an eye on us and keep us under their guns. It is a very exposed location. No cover at all. Personally, I would not lead my protestors to that protest location to be sitting ducks for the Queen's police who think their murder of Jean Charles de Menezes on the London Underground was legal! I may end up there on the day because I will be obvious to the police in my standard bearer outfit and with my protest placard. But if you really want to make an impact with your protest, perhaps place "H" is better?

Peter Dow said:
In case I am misunderstood about this. I've no intention myself of doing anything other than having a quiet wee protest on the 30th June at the location which is designated by the police.

If the Scots wish to live as slaves under the harsh rule of Queen Elizabeth and her royalist, fascist police state - then that's that. It is not what I want, but I don't decide what happens here in Scotland - I only advise.

I am simply laying out HOW the Scots can free ourselves and HOW to free Scotland from the Queen's tyranny, if that's what the Scots, in their wisdom, decide to do, now or in the future.

Scotland actually has far more influence in the British Government per head of its population than the English actually has with its own people. With regard to the electorate and numbers of seats accordingly being alotted.

Scots of course were not prepared to struggle for an eternity and truly win their own freedom and as such thats your own feckin' problem. So you guys get to listen to the old bat and put up with her pretending she pwns j00 :lol:

And for those of you who dont much care for that, please emigrate to the Rebuplic. I need a few good men :)

Well I'm not ready to seek asylum in the Irish republic as yet. What would be of interest though, is if you could suggest an Irish Republican forum which might be open to posts like the one I've posted in this thread.

Sort of try to get links and co-operation between Scottish and Irish republicans going.

sorry to blow your bubble dude, but Queen Elizabeth II does have the right to rule. You see when Queen Elizabeth I died, she left the English throne to her nephew ( i believe), King James of Scotland, who became King of both England and Scotland and signed a document that linked the two kingdoms from that day forward.
