An Gof was a blacksmith, Michael Joseph by name who led the Cornish revolt of 1497 against the then English King Henry VII.
The uprising was because Henry wanted more taxes so he could fight the Scots.
An Gof was executed for his part in the rising.
AUOB Kernow stated: “Marching & Rallying for Kernow – for the people of Cornwall’s right to self determination. Follow us if you support the people of Cornwall’s right to decide.”
The original AUOB said: “The #AUOB phenomenon is spreading, now the people of Kernow want to March & Rally for an Independent Cornwall.
“We are delighted to be working with them.”
