Blackpool FC – THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES. As the despicable owners continue to pursue fans through the civil courts for the crime of ‘speaking out’ please support our Justice for Fans sponsored walk this Saturday (www.crowdfunding.justgiving.com/BSTJ4F) – they will not silence us.
We also have a community march (Judgement Day 2) on April 30th at 10.30 am setting off from the Blue Room along the promenade to Bloomfield Road. Fans of all clubs are welcome to join us along with the scooter out-riders, a brass band and thousands of local people in sticking two fingers up at the owners who seem intent on teaching the supporters a lesson by running it into the ground. First they ignored us, then they mocked us, then they fought us – then we won ! Oyston Out ! www.facebook.com/tangerineknightssupport
