Blackburn fans to take drastic 24-hour protest action against Venky's
Blackburn Rovers fans will undertake an astonishing 24-hour demonstration outside Ewood Park from Friday, in protest against owners Venky's.
The organisers have called off their truce with the club which began on December 3, and will resume their action more vehemently than ever.
The fans' group had halted their protests in a temporary peace deal, but say the club have not kept their promise to hold a meeting to discuss their concerns.
Resumed: Action against the owners and manager has resumed
Day: Blackburn fans will protest for an entire day
Little support: Steve Kean has few backers at Ewood Park
A statement from the fans' group said: 'Despite organisers arranging no protest for the last seven matches the club has failed to deliver on the promises and pledges they made.
'This protest will be aimed at Venky's, the legal owners of Blackburn Rovers football club.'
There will also be a protest march to Ewood Park ahead of the match against Fulham on Saturday.
Organisers Glen Mullan and Simon Littler recently released a statement which read:
'The aim of the protests, as from the start, will be about the removal of Steve Kean as first-team manager, Venky's as owners of the club and now the removal of the board of directors.
'The intensity of the protest will increase substantially.
'As Blackburn Rovers fans we have no choice but to try to ensure we preserve the legacy left by the late Jack Walker.
'While we appreciate that this era is in the past, the failure by Venky's and the current board of directors to build on his legacy leaves fans with very little if anything to cling on to.'
Saga: Blackburn are embroiled in a relegation scrap
Since calling off the protests in December Blackburn have been knocked out of the FA Cup and suffered defeats to Stoke, Bolton, West Brom and Sunderland.
Although they achieved a creditable victory over Manchester United and a draw with Liverpool, the fans are understandably unhappy with the club's current league position.
