Fishing for Leave to kick-off March To Leave to Parliament Square With Tyne Flotilla and Parade!
Fishing for Leave will stage yet another audacious event to highlight the death sentence’Theresa May’s Withdrawal Agreement, OR MPs thwarting Brexit, presents to British fishing and coastal communities.
On Friday 15th March a 30ft fishing boat on a lorry will be escorted by a pipe band from North Shields fishing harbour at (0830), via Wallsend High St (1000) and Byker, to Newcastle Quayside (1200).
At the same time a flotilla of some 20 fishing vessels will leave North Shields (1000) and head up the Tyne to pass under Millennium Bridge. The flotilla will re-unite with the boat, lorry and pipe band as they arrive and parade along the Quayside (1200)
The Parade will then March up to cross the symbolic Tyne Bridge on the A167 to bellows of horns and hooters from the fishing boats below.
The boat, lorry and pipe band will then head to Jarrow to fire the start on the ‘Jarrow March for Brexit’, as Brexit groups set off on the March to Leave from the North East in Sunderland the following day (Sat 16th) to Parliament Square. Arriving in London on the 29th – a date that will be Brexit victory or betrayal day.
Fishing for Leave are throwing their weight behind Brexit groups – and increasing public calls shown in new polling – for the government to scrap the loathed Withdrawal Agreement & for MPs to honour the Brexit vote by ensuring Britain leaves the EU with No Deal.
The terms of the Withdrawal Agreement are an existential threat to fishing and a total betrayal of Brexit and Britain. It means a second surrender of our industry and coastal communities and places a constitutional bomb under democracy.
The protests purpose is to remind our representatives who we elect to ensure we leave on the 29th of March and to highlight our industry’s plight as symbolic of EU mis-rule to a public who are equally sickened by the governments actions.
The fishing will start this historic march of the British people to our capital to send a message to our elected representatives to obey our democratic instruction and that our industry won’t accept a second surrender of Britain and our fishing.
We’ve hit a cross road, this is our last chance to bludgeon MPs to stop this surrender of Britain, Brexit and one of our country’s greatest renewable resource. One which can support generations to come in areas like the North East – No Deal Is Better Than This Bad Deal!
We therefore appeal to every Briton who loves their country you must shout and thunder to stop MPs betraying the largest democratic instruction in British history.
– Join the Flotilla with your boat to accompany the parade.

This is Yellow wellies rather than yellow yests!
