Stand up for the 2%
“We’ve therefore come together to ask fans to join a 60 second demonstration in the second minute of the televised game against Ipswich, holding up A4 posters to show the extent of the 2 per cent and joining with a chant of “stand up for the 2 per cent”.
This is not a protest based on gender or nationality. It doesn’t focus on any individual or demand the owner spends more money. It is legal and respectful. It simply reflects a demand for the club to be run in a more professional and intelligent way, and for the ownership to work with supporters to strengthen the club.”
– Voice of The Valley and the Spell It Out campaign.
I will be wholeheartedly supporting this clever but simple initiative on Saturday as will my family and friends. This a protest against the administration and not the team or Interim Head Coach.
The Stand up for the 2% protest is a direct response to Katrien Meire’s continued uninformed and disingenuous attitude towards Charlton supporters and the continued lack of communication from Roland Duchatelet on what his bizarre experiment means to the very future of the club that we love.
The protest does not affect the support of the players, the enjoyment of the match nor is it a personal attack based on gender or nationality. Stand up for the 2% needs to form part of a long term strategic and intelligent protest until it brings change and I am looking forward to being part of it on Saturday.
Joe from the Spell it Out campaign and Rick Everitt need every help they can get, whether it is financial or more importantly, volunteers who can give up a bit of time on Saturday to help give out posters (10,000 have been printed), balloons or sell scarfs.
Come on you reds!
