For those who could not get to the game last night the leaflet we handed out can be downloaded from the above link. We believe we handed out over 4000 leaflets – not bad considering there was only a handful of us!
We also got Sky Sports News along to cover our story and received national coverage after the game and early Saturday morning.
Thanks to those who came to the Elm Tree before the game and said hello. Thanks also to the Blues who took leaflets into the areas of the stadium we were not in.
We had three banners last night which we smuggled into Goodison Park, we had been given a tip off that stewards were checking for banners and flags as the Club were expecting some sort of demonstration! 38 minutes into the first half we dropped two of the banners from the Upper Bullens Road stand. With stewards and police around it proved quite difficult to say the least! The banners were in place for about 5 minutes until the head stewards came with police to remove us and the banners!
The banners did not have any offensive content and to have them removed was the sign of a football club operating in a fascist regime! To be told to take down banners in your own stadium – is a joke!
We have taken some criticism from people (mainly on Facebook) saying ‘banners will not work’ and ‘the board must be running scared seeing those banners’. One person actually said ‘if you lot were any good you would have had Kenwright out by now.’ We have been active for four weeks!!!!!! If those same people were to stop hiding behind their keyboards and come and actually meet us then yes, a demonstration of some sort could be arranged. But for now when only tens of people come and meet us rather than hundreds then a march, sit-in etc cannot be done – we will become a laughing stock.
Thanks to everyone for coming to see us before the game, your support is welcome and much needed. We will keep fighting…
