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.
