Scarlet Shit List

As “fuck you 2016” memes flood Instagram, Facebook statuses reach new levels of narcissistic scarlet, and Snapchat filters teeter on a not-so-blurry line of blatant racism, we, at the Scarlet Brigade find ourselves desperately strapping onto a hitching post waiting to see the calm in the eye of the shit twister that was 2016, à la Helen Hunt, 1996.

Repeal The 8th | GLOBAL GATHERING

Just over two months ago, we were almost dead from the scarlet due to Ireland’s 8th amendment.  We decided we wanted to do something about it, despite the fact that we’re not in Ireland at the moment, which is where the idea of the global gatherings came about.
