The Magpie Group reveal plans for St James’ Park protest – Plus key points on ‘what happens next’

Wednesday night saw the Magpie Group conduct their very first public meeting, with them looking to get supporters engaged and on board in an attempt to get Mike Ashley out of our beloved football club.

Protests outside Northumberland street’s Sports Direct have already taken place prior to the opening day clash with Spurs and before the recent 2-1 defeat to Chelsea, however The Magpie Group have now confirmed that another protest has now been organised outside St James’ Park before next Saturday’s visit of Arsenal.

Further details are expected soon, but it looks set to take place over the road from the club shop before next weekend’s game.

Twitter page @IFRafaGoesWeGo also confirmed that the following points were raised at the end of the meeting when addressing what happens next:

1. Focus on Sports Direct and Ashley’s other business interests. Disruptive action.

2. Maintain pressure online and social media. Positive use of facts to change narrative and disruptive action.

3. Need more people involved. Everybody needs to spread the word.

4. Need to impact on Sports Direct’s AGM

5. Action at the Arsenal match. We WILL be protesting outside Sports D at SJP. We need to do this.

  1. Here we go again. A full on protest from 3 adults, 12 kids who have been told what to do and a Corgi wearing an Alan Shearer shirt.

    Yeah guys – there’s not enough pressure on the team to win as it it.

    I could understand it at the Chelsea, Man City and Spurs matches – they were pretty much always going to be zero pointers from the off, but surely we stand a chance against the Arse?
