Details of new Newcastle fans protests against Mike Ashley made public

3 years ago

The campaign continues against Mike Ashley.

The Newcastle fans sick of their footballing lives.

Keith Bishop told Mike Ashley that the protests would blow over by September…

The reality of course is something very different.

This week will see two days of protesting against Mike Ashley and both days will be aimed at he and his Achilles heel – Sports Direct.

On Saturday, the focus will switch pre-match from demonstrating outside the SD store on Northumberland Street, to instead protesting outside the ‘Sports Direct’ store at St James Park.

Newcastle fans asked to be there for 2.15pm to join their fellow supporters before the Arsenal game (3pm kick-off).

Prior to that though, Newcastle fans are also asked to pop along to Academy House at 36 Poland Street, London on Wednesday (12 September) morning.

It is the Sports Direct AGM at 11am and as well as Newcastle fans set to turn up and attend the meeting inside, after buying shares to give them that right, any Newcastle supporters who can attend, are also asked to join those demonstrating outside the AGM.

It is quite ridiculous but Mike Ashley is boycotting his company’s own AGM, despite being Chief Executive and controlling (61%) shareholder, he is showing total contempt to the shareholders.

In a prepared statement, Mike Ashley said he was too busy to attend the SD AGM and whether that was because of the awkward questions from shareholders he was expecting, or the news that Newcastle fans would be targeting it, who knows?

However, what is for sure is that the Newcastle protests at the Sports Direct AGM should get some really good media coverage. Especially where doesn’t want it, connected to Sports Direct and in the business pages.

One day we will get rid of him and the protests must continue to keep up the pressure.
