Next Pro Brexit March organised

Next Pro Brexit March organised

Simon Avison the man behind the the recent Pro-Brexit protests spoke to the Grimsby Independent about the reasons that he started the movement locally and what he wants to achieve with his actions.

I joined a Facebook group called Brexit Protest and Direct Action Group UK.

I asked one of the admins of the group what I could do here in Grimsby because no one has organised anything, he recommended doing a ‘drive slow’.As this was my first time doing anything like this it was explained to me what I needed to do and that I need to inform the police, which I have done on all 3 of my ‘drive slows which’ went well.  I received good responses for them.

The first to I organised I only had myself and 2 other cars, by the last one  11 cars took part, which was a good response. As we were travelling on the route I had planned with the police more cars joined in with us in the end there was 13 cars doing the ‘drive slow’.

After this I asked other people who attended the ‘drive slow’ what we should do next, this was were the idea of the March came from.

I have now setup my own Facebook group called Grimsby Brexit action group from here I organised the March last weekend in Grimsby which I had about 30 people turn up which was a really good response.

Asked if people would attend another March  if I organised one all said they would turn up and also I have 91 members in my Facebook group at the moment hopefully this will get more people joining my group.

I want to more people to come and join us in the March’s as 66% of voters in Grimsby voted to leave the EU.

      So this guy managed to get 13 cars on his drive slow, while the Anti-Brexit protest got over a million people.

      The will of the people looks clear to me…

      If you are truly Grimsby INDEPENDENT, why are you only promoting on side of the argument?

      Well done for standing up for democracy, just remember this government have now opened up the way for every election in the future to be ignore. Leave won its that simple .
