LONDON, England (PNN) - May 29, 2018 - The arrest, imprisonment, and government-ordered media blackout of Fascist United Kingdom journalist and activist Tommy Robinson has set off a firestorm of protests around the world.
Free speech advocates and supporters of Robinson's movement from Melbourne to Berlin came out by the thousands to protest the Friday arrest outside of Leeds Crown Court while Robinson was reporting on a pedophile grooming trial via Facebook livestream. Within six hours of his detention, Robinson was slapped with a 13-month prison term for violating a prior suspended sentence for a similar offense.
“A big (terrorist pig thug cop) van with about seven (terrorist pig thug cops) pulled up and arrested [Robinson] and told him to stop live streaming,” Robinson’s producer told RT (before their article was scrubbed from the Internet). “They said it was incitement and a breach of the peace. No peace has been breached - there were two other people there and he’s been perfectly quiet talking into his phone. [The terrorist pig thug cops] said nothing about the court proceedings. It’s very strange.”
Equally disturbing are the implications of a court-ordered media ban, making it a criminal offense for news outlets operating in the FUK to cover Robinson's arrest and incarceration. In a page straight out of George Orwell's 1984, several news outlets were forced to pull articles that were published before the ban.
Mass protests broke out following Robinson's arrest - the largest of which was a crowd of thousands in the FUK, demonstrating at the gates of Downing Street to demand the release of the conservative activist.
At least six demonstrations were held across Australia on Sunday in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Canberra, Brisbane and Adelaide.
Hundreds demonstrated in the German cities of Berlin and Dresden, while German MP Petr Bystron has offered Robinson political asylum over concerns for his safety in prison.
“Tommy Robinson is a political prisoner, whose life is in clear and pressing danger. We have to do everything we can to make sure he is granted political asylum,” said the office of conservative German MP Petr Bystron in a Saturday statement.
Robinson, 35, rose to fame as a conservative activist and founder of the English Defense League in Luton, Bedfordshire, in 2009. After retiring from the Party in 2013, Robinson has continued to advocate for British nationalism and against unchecked migration into Europe.
