To the Secretariat of CDA
You are hereby instructed to remove the following direct or indirect references from the CDA website known as https://celticdruidalliance.wixsite.com/celtic-alliance that refer to the Celtic Druid Temple that imply our approval or support for your group from your public webpage immediately. You may not use references to the Celtic Druid Temple that imply authenticity or validation now or in the future to promote your activities.
This NOTICE includes and requires you to remove:
1. Your currently online statement that was originally written by Con Connor - “The Celtic Druid Alliance had its inaugural gathering at Temple Crom in the west of Ireland on the 22/23 September 2016. The Celtic Druid Alliance is a European based global organisation hosting a platform for compliance with the Primordial Tradition. It is founded on integrating the true principles of Love and Light and is open to include all beings and ritual gatherings that truly aspire to a connection with a Celtic appreciation of the Primordial Tradition. The Celtic Druid Alliance has an Inner Council whose members are senior Celtic Druids within its membership organisations.”
This is still seen at https://celticdruidalliance.wixsite.com/celtic-alliance
Note: In the NOTICE dated 28/11/2021, you were formally instructed to remove all written contributions by Con Connor from your website known as https://celticdruidalliance.wixsite.com/celtic-alliance.
There is no longer any true ‘alliance’ after the expulsion of one of the founders when Denis Guillio declared in his accusation - “Pour la simple raison à mon sens notre Tradition ne peut être galvaudée* tel que le fait l'Obod”. (* treacherous word). Meaning - “For the simple reason, in my opinion, our Tradition cannot be ‘soiled, sullied, stained or contaminated*’ as Obod does”. This bizarre and unsubstantiated accusation by Denis Guillo did not use established channels to settle disputes as agreed by Denis Guillio and Joaquin Punto and it quickly resulted in Joaquim Pinto pronouncing sentence (without consulting his two support guardians as he was required to and expelling Con Connor and the Celtic Druid Temple from your group. His diversionary tactic was to demand that I should not have a Patreon page to share my work on but his real purpose was to limit or restrict my public success. All this was done with total disregard for the Oath, Aims and Roles of your group which have since been taken off line as it is now abundantly clear that they did not truly apply to many members of your group.
2. Your cultural misappropriation of an Irish welcome ‘as Gaelige’ as first written on your website by Con Connor - “Tá failte romhat”
This is still shown twice at https://celticdruidalliance.wixsite.com/celtic-alliance/official-annoucements
Note: In the NOTICE dated 28/11/2021, you were formally instructed to remove all written contributions by Con Connor from the CDA website known as https://celticdruidalliance.wixsite.com/celtic-alliance.
Cultural misappropriation of a traditional welcome greeting from our Gaelic culture by your foreign culture that might imply to others that your group has authenticity or validation by our Irish group now or in the future to promote your activities is a form of ‘culture theft or hate crime’.
3. Your online claim below that will in the future be seen as implying ongoing authenticity or validation for your group by the Celtic Druid Temple is a deliberate misrepresentation of truth.
“The first edition took place on 23rd to 25th of September 2016 at Temple Crom, Co. Roscommon in the Sovereign Republic of Ireland.”
Note: In the NOTICE dated 28/11/2021, you were formally instructed to remove all written contributions by or references to Con Connor from your group website known as https://celticdruidalliance.wixsite.com/celtic-alliance. Recent dishonesty by Denis Guillo and Joaqium Pinto demonstrates that your group does not honour its agreements. Consequently, your group no longer has permission to display any link, script or foundation claims that make mention of the Celtic Druid Temple from the date of this NOTICE.
4. Your group’s online presence makes claims of being both ‘Celtic’ and ‘Druid’. Yet your leader, Denis Giullo shows on his website that his lineage or ‘Notre filiation’ (or direct translation by google – ‘our parentage’) starts with the freemason John Toland followed by the notorious opium addict and forger, the fake druid freemason known as Iolo Morganwg.
Note: Obod uses the masonic philosophy's of Toland and the opium inspired fantasy's of Morganwg but these notions cannot be seen as Celtic or Druidic. Just like electricians are not heart surgeons – anyone pretending that freemasons are Celtic Druids are telling a lie. This shows that Denis Gullio is using the same misrepresentation technique that is also used by obod. There are two claims by obod for their lineage 1) a group founded in England in 1717 by the freemason John Toland and 2) to the freemason Henry Hurle in England in 1781. Denis Guillo or his group Collège du Chaudron des Druides cannot be accepted or recognised as Celtic or Druidic in any way if their claim of lineage goes back to the same freemasons as obod. Denis Gullio initiated Joaquim Pinto into the same freemason tradition of fake druids as obod and Pinto in turn may have done this to others.
The original request by Guillio and Pinto to me Con Connor in 2016 to set up and lead a new group on pure Celtic lines was seen by me firstly as respect but also as a sign that they wished to make a true connection to the real Celtic Path. I refused to lead but instead worked with them to create an alliance but they have both worked together to evade their agreements with me. The Aims, Oath and Roles in that alliance were crafted to show them the way back to a Celtic Path but it is clear now that they are locked into a hierarchy lineage from freemasonry. I tried but there is no Celtic Druid Alliance.
Your group may not use the term ‘Celtic Druid Alliance’ with truth or honour because your group covertly holds on so tightly to freemasonic hierarchical principles. Your group stands in dishonour for cultural misappropriation alongside obod.
Failure to comply with this NOTICE will have consequences.
