British citizens have had enough of their government’s tyrannical behavior.
Thousands of British citizens gathered to protest in London demanding the release of free speech activist Tommy Robinson, who was imprisoned two weeks ago after filming members of Muslim child sex trafficking gang entering a courtroom in Leeds, Yorkshire, UK.
Watch the #FreeTommy rally in London here:
“We want Tommy out,” the crowd chanted as they clashed with knight-stick wielding police.
Geert Wilders, leader of the Dutch Party for Freedom, spoke at the rally.
Geert Wilders is a Dutch politician who is the founder and the current leader of the Party for Freedom. Wilders is the parliamentary group leader of his party in the House of Representatives.
Geert Wilders said he came to tell the crowd they “will never walk alone” and to “tell the world, and the UK government, in particular, to free Tommy Robinson!”
“We are here to tell the world and the UK government in particular, to free Tommy Robinson,” he said. “Tommy Robinson is the greatest freedom fighter of Britain today. Tommy Robinson is a freedom fighter. He says what no-one dares to say. He has guts. He has courage.”
Later in the Free Tommy rally, Wilders said:
“Every day, more people are joining our cause. The cause of freedom. Every day our members grow, and our demands are right and just. This is what we want. First, and most important: Free Tommy Robinson!”
“But we also want you to give our countries back to us. Stop selling us out. Stop the mass immigration. Protect your own people. Stop gagging us. Restore the freedom of speech.”
“My friends: long live Great Britain. Allow me, long live the Netherlands. Long live freedom. But most of all, long live Tommy Robinson!”
Tommy Robinson was jailed for 13 months for contempt of court after live-streaming outside a criminal trial in what the court stated was a violation of reporting restrictions.
Robinson was arrested in northern England at Leeds Crown Court, where he was live-streaming on Facebook details of an ongoing trial.
35-year-old Tommy appeared in court under his real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon.
Robinson pleaded guilty to contempt of court and breaching the terms of a suspended sentence.
The trial Tommy Robinson live-streamed on Facebook was covered by restrictions on what was allowed to be reported while it was underway — This is a common practice in Britain, designed to protect the impartiality of the jury.
Judge Geoffrey Marson said Tommy’s actions could be “highly prejudicial to the defendants in the trial”.
Marson said Robinson had live-streamed details of the defendants and the charges they faced, including some information that was wrong.
Robinson was previously convicted of contempt of court back in May of 2017 for live-streaming at a rape trial and was ultimately given a three-month suspended sentence.
The judge presiding, in that case, told Tommy that he could face prison if he committed “a further contempt of court by similar actions”.
Robinson also allegedly has previous convictions for assault, fraud and other offences.
The judge in Leeds imposed a reporting restriction on Robinson’s latest conviction. However, it was successfully challenged on Tuesday by media outlets. Which one could question as strange given the circumstances of why Tommy has been jailed.
News of his arrest has trended heavily on social media calling for his release which kicked-off demonstrations outside the British prime minister’s Downing Street office.
Not only that, #FreeTommy rallies have been happening around the world with one, in particular, happening in Melbourne, Australia.
