Because of Brexit, all companies which only operate ATMs inside the EU have now replaced the UK’s Union Jack with the Irish tricolour for the English language option.

Ye killed our language lads, so now we’ve kidnapped yours.
€10million and an Irish Language Act in the North within 48hrs, or Béarla gets it 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🔫

Watch how prince philip’s death completely takes over the news cycle and sidelines the actual carnage happening in northern ireland
Last night saw rioting on both sides of the peace wall in belfast
19 police officers were injured
The PSNI then turned water canons on the rioters (despite the fact loyalists have been rioting for a week, only the nationalist rioters were subjected to this)
The people have no faith in the police or the politicians and there is no end in sight
You won’t hear about any of this though.

This is Cultural Appropriation
Tumblr media
The version of the wheel of the year we see today was popularised by Wicca which was founded by Gerald Gardener. Who was an English man. Ireland was very badly oppressed by English colonialism. The British slaughtered a lot of Irish people while they were being overtaken. And they are also the reason so many people starved in the famine. The British are also the reason Ireland converted to christianity instead of paganism.
This wheel is a jumbled up mess of a variety of European holidays all merged into one and labelled “Wicca”. This is appropriation as its unacknowledged where all these came from.
Not all European countries are the same and these colonial countries are not entitled to claiming the traditions they colonised.
In Ireland May Day/Bealtaine was still celebrated in certain counties until the last century. But people are still misusing it and mispronouncing it. Pronouncing Samhain “Sam hain” instead of “sow wen”, unaware that it is the Irish word for November. And that Bealtaine is the word for May. In a language still used.
English colonialism is the reason we starved The reason we stopped speaking our language as widely. And a religion popularised by an English man is now using our words without directly crediting the cultures.
And now its further reinforced by the way that people are taking these words out of context. Mixing them up with other European words. Without giving credit to any of the countries they came from.
Its like how people will take chakras from hinduism and sage from native americans and throw some jesus in and just call it “new age spirituality”
(Native people have it even worse than the situation with Irish culture. Native Americans are going through so much shit. Cause people use spirituality as an excuse to just take shit)
You can’t use things without acknowledging the fact that they are from specific cultures.
Tumblr media
This is a more Irish accurate wheel of the years. Please acknowledge the cultures you got these words from.
I have more info on the holidays on my page. Lora o brien is another good native resource. Please share this with anyone who uses the wheel of the year.
Other European countries feel free to share a your countries more culturally accurate wheel of the year.

every time i watch derry girls i am reminded of this video we watched in school about the troubles. a tv journalist was talking about being on assignment in derry and one night she met a girl who was about 16 or 17 in the women’s bathroom of a pub. they were chatting and when the girl realised she was a journalist she said, “what are you doing here? sure, nothing ever happens in derry.” the journalist was so struck by that statement, but then she realised that this girl had lived her entire life under the shadow of sectarian violence, it wasn’t that she was ignorant or apthetic towards it, she just didn’t know any other life. and thats what makes derry girls such a special show, you have this group of teenagers who are just living their lives and being idiots and then every now and then we as viewers are forced to acknowledge the true horror of the world they are living in.

In any other country this would be considered a hate crime but here it's considered culture. This is an tactic of intimidation that incites violence and celebrates imperialism.
For anyone that doesn't know, KAT means "kill all taigs" - taigs meaning catholics. People should face jail time for this but this country protects violent bigots because it was built on the subjugation of catholics to prop up a unionist controlled state.
This is the legacy of colonialism in this country and the UK turns a blind eye to it every single year.
