Having read the last few pages i'm disappointed. Yesterday the supporters showed unanimously in the stadium that we have a common goal, how people wish to achieve this is their personal choice. To criticise those who don't want to march is not right, to criticise those who want to march is not right either and to say that the marches achieved nothing then applaud the crowds chanting of Venkys out is a strange one to me. The chant yesterday came months too late in my opinion, the marches have kept our problems in the spotlight for months and that is why i will continue to take part in them, however never will i criticise those who don't want to participate. People say it won't make a difference if 10,000 march? yet believe 10,000 singing it in the ground does make a difference! this baffles me somewhat.
Yesterday was not about the Action Group, or any group. It was a community march for the people of Blackburn, in addition to supporters from outside the area to come together and show their concerns about the way their football club is being dismantled and its town is being neglected. Yes the Action Groups name was always going to be attributed towards this as it was organised by them, discussed with the authorities by them and all press issues were published by them. They provided the platform and many people attended the march simply because they care and it felt right to them as individuals, many of these people are even unaware the Action Group exists.
Are people who attend marches, lesser supporters? NO
, are people who don't attend marches lesser supporters? NO
and are any of these people to blame for what's happening? NO
. Each supporter makes a choice whether they support the marches or not and that is their right to do so. What needs to stop is supporter blaming supporters, there is only one lot of people who are to blame and they own/work at the club.
