On Sunday, Charlton Atheltic fans and their relevant protest groups are preparing for significant and large protests for the final game of the season against Swindon Town. Charlton fans have reacted to the large protest and pitch invasion by the Orient fans against Francesco Becchetti in the 85th minute. Has it given them ideas for Sunday?
The umbrella protest organisation CARD, have plans in place for a final effective and large-scale protest once again, on the final day of the season, but this time in the league below, due to the failure and ineptness of the ownership at Charlton Athletic.
They are issuing a rallying cry to all boycotters to return in their numbers on the 30th April to take part in the large protests and demonstrations. CARD have asked all fans who oppose the Duchatelet ownership to meet outside the large Charlton Athletic badge at the rear of the north stand for 11am, in black and white (protest colours) attire. More details of the demonstration outside the stadium will be revealed on the morning of the 30th April.
The protest organisation is encouraging anyone who is planning on attending the game to purchase tickets in the lower West Stand, which hosts the executive box, which will hold attendance of the Charlton Athletic board, including the Chief Executive Officer, Katrien Meire on the day.
With large numbers expected to attend the protests on Sunday, and with the actual plans for the protest not being released by CARD until early Sunday morning, Addicks’ fans are left wondering as for what is in store.
However, it emerged on social media, videos of Leyton Orient fans invading the pitch, in the 85th minute, in a final attempt to drive Francesco Becchetti out of the east London club. Becchetti has driven the second oldest London club into the National Conference starting from next season.

Has the pitch invasion given the eager and driven Charlton protesters, desperate to drive Roland Duchatelet out of their club, ideas?
