Who is Brexit Direct Action?
Brexit Direct Action describes itself as a protest group advocating the UK’s departure from the European Union. The group demands a „clean Brexit from the EU„.
Brexit Direct Action aims to organise ‚go-slow’ blockades on the country’s significant motorways to „bring this country to its knees”. Lorry drivers will drive slowly on the roads or even stop on carriageways to deliver their pro-Brexit message.
The group previously shared on Twitter: „Several social media groups have been in contact to ask if we’ll help gather support for a national truck drivers protest if #Brexit is delayed.
„Brexiteers all over the country are planning to bring this country to its knees by blocking the main arterial routes – M1, M6 M25, M62, A1, A55, M5, M4, M42, M55, M61, A66 etc.
