The Green Brigade have reacted in the most positive way after UEFA charged the club with displaying “illicit banners” during the Champions League play-off game with Isreali side Hapoel Be’er Sheeva. The group has set up a go fund me page to raise money for two separate Palestine charities, drawing more attention to the Palestinian people’s plight and showing up UEFA in the process for attempting to call the Palestine flag an illicit banner.

Thursday Flagship Podcast w/ Gianni Capaldi

The go fund me page was set up around four hours ago and already has hit over 2k with generous Celtic and football fans contributing to it.

Here is a snippet from the GB on why they’re doing this:

At the Champions League match with Hapoel Beer Sheva on 17 August 2016, the Green Brigade and fans throughout Celtic Park flew the flag for Palestine. This act of solidarity has earned Celtic respect and acclaim throughout the world. It has also attracted a disciplinary charge from UEFA, which deems the Palestinian flag to be an ‘illicit banner’.

In response to this petty and politically partisan act by European football’s governing body we are determined to make a positive contribution to the game and today launch a campaign to #matchthefineforpalestine. We aim to raise £15,000* which will be split 50/50 between Medical Aid Palestine (MAP) and to the Lajee Centre, a Palestinian creative cultural children’s centre in Aida Refugee Camp, Bethlehem.

  1. Very commendable of the GB setting up fund raising campaign for two extremely worthy causes. I guess they are appealing to people from outside their membership as they are planning to pay any UEFA fine that Celtic are hit with from their own funds as being a responsible social justice movement they will wish held responsible for their own actions.

  2. When a club from a country described as a terrorist states (Bolivian president 2014) is permitted to play in European competition they should be grateful for the privilege and not pour scorn upon the European nations objective opinion of the Maas murder,invasion and occupation of Gaza,West Bank,settlements and in the spot executions etc.
    To protest at the sight of the country they despise is a total disgrace and says more about them than they could ever say about anyone else.Theyre engaging in a final solution, don’t expect others and myself to endorse it.

    • What a load of misinformed nonesense.
      Just made up one sided rubbish with no actual basis in fact.
      ” Mass murder ” in Gaza ? Nonesense. Casualties of a conflict started by Hamas which ensured that the civilian population of Gaza was kept in harms way.
      On the spot killings? I take it that you mean the shooting of armed terrorists after they have attacked and killed an innocent civilian. I presume that you will advocate the flying of the ISIS flag following the execution of two young French terrorists following the slaying of a priest?

          • And your a troll Kris. Stop being an arse and siding with international bullies. Yes the Zionist are bulliies But you are worse you suck up to bullies. You sad waste of flesh.

            Check te history Israel was formed from a terrorist organization that did terror against the UK as well as others. This terror has never stopped they have just changed to easier targets. They send tanks to blow up kids that throw stones.

            Don’t get me wrong I like Jews. They are good people. Zionists however are the second lowest form of scum in the world. The top spot is saved for people like you Kris that support the terrist scum that is Isreal

  3. What a pity your brigade do not represent real fans of celtic if you want to be celtic people live the club go protest in George Sq celtic do nor need your shite

    • Nobodys asking you to join in ….maybe you dont know your history because if you did you would know that celtic fc is built on this kind of gesture and because of gestures like this is why a lot of people support celtic.
      * a club like no other

  4. Pity they could’nt have just raised the money outside parkhead instead of flying banned flags in side parkhead.
    They have and will continue to bring our club down to their level,just like old rangers will they pay the other £300,000 we have already paid in fines due to their political agenda’s,no they will not.Just have a wee look at what their name stands for BRIGADE confrontational.

    • And by your logic the Boy’s Brigade was a para military political organization. Shut your bloody cake hole you Muppet. This is a good deed and you do nothing but put it down. Shame on you. Bigot.

  5. Good work Celts. Im not Irish, nor Scott but I understand your history. You’ve earned a place in my heart for what you’ve done – I will never forget.
    You’re in my heart, you’re in my soul…
