Statement from Union Bears regarding the cancellation of the Hampden march

Last updated : 28 December 2012 By Grandmaster Suck
We regret to announce that tomorrow's planned march to Hampden Stadium has been cancelled due to threats of arrest emanating from Strathclyde Police.

We've been advised late this afternoon that if we go ahead with the planned 15 minute walk to the ground then anyone suspected of organising the march will be arrested and charged.

In light of recent intimidation, harassment, brutality and a number of trivial charges coming from the aforementioned force we've made the decision not to put our members and fellow fans in the position where they may be easily arrested.

Our group exists to provide vocal and visual support to the players and management of our football club. If we continue to allow members to be arrested and banned for trivial matters such as walking to the stadium in a show of unity with the wider support we'll no longer be in a position to do so.

With that in mind, we call on all like-minded fans to join us in the West Stand tomorrow to help roar the lads on to yet another victory in the original Glasgow Derby.
