A momentous day. Some incredible video and photographs out there of large protests before and after the game, the post game one attended by many thousands of Addicks making their feelings clear in a passionate but orderly manner. It was a day to remember and sat here tonight I am so proud to be an Addick.
Also, there has been much media attention. Talksport, Channel 5 and the BBC both covered it as did many media outlets and commentators. Rick Everitt was interviewed on Talksport, who talked extensively about the protests today and C5 had Chirs Powell on, bringing a tear to my eye if I’m honest. The protest made the Belgium press and there was a lot of support from other club’s supporters, including Forest fans. Even James Corden mentioned it on Twitter, calling the demise a tragedy. And he has 5.9 million followers.
National media coverage is essential as we continue to highlight the systematic mis-management of a football club, OUR football club, that we hold so dear. Unified, together, committed, patient, we will force Duchatelet and his puppet adminstration out.
And the protests have to continue. Whilst I respect those of you that refuse to go, and nothing of course will embarass Meire more than an empty stadium, the continual noisy protests that we saw today aligned with a strategy of getting to sponsors and media both here and in Belgium as well as boycotting the purchase of goods and services is a must.
The black & white theme is working well and wouldn’t it be fantastic if fans could mass in the lower west to really turn up the heat on Meire and Murray at a future game.
This is a long game, support the players and continue to give the regime hell.
Charlton ’til I die.
