After a temporary truce of sorts between the club and the protest organisers the latest press release is out and it signals an increase in intensity for the next round of protests.

With the protest organisers locked in talks with the club aimed at building bridges there has been (for the last 3 home games) no organised element to the demonstrations that started way back in September against Arsenal.

But after seemingly making headway and arranging a few conditions by which the club could talk to the fans and mend fences the organisers were let down and planned meetings with board members/Steve Kean were abandoned with minimal excuse which has left the divide wide open again.

As a result the problems still remain and the protests are set to resume with the board of directors also being called into question.

The latest press release 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.’
