Britons Rage Over Robinson Arrest As Mass Protests Break Out Worldwide

The arrest, imprisonment, and government-ordered media blackout of UK 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 police van with about seven police officers pulled up and arrested [Robinson] and told him to stop live streaming,” Robinson’s producer told RT (before their article (archivedwas 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 police] said nothing about the court proceedings. It’s very strange.” 

Equally as disturbing are the implications of a court-ordered media banmaking it a criminal offense for news outlets operating in the UK 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 which were published before the ban.

Mass protests broke out following Robinson's arrest - the largest of which was a crowd of thousands in the UK, 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 provided to the Gateway Pundit's Cassandra Fairbanks.

A crowd even showed up at the British embassy in Tel Aviv:

Dutch MP Geert Wilders showed up at the British Embassy in The Hague to deliver comments.

"I am here on behalf of millions. Freedom of speech is being violated all over Europe and also in Britain. Restore freedom of speech." -Geert Wilders, Dutch MP

Wilders penned a letter to the Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs over the weekend with five questions about Robinson's situation.

Robinson, 35, rose to fame as a conservative activist and founder of the English Defence 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.

Screw all of this #FreeTommy love fest.  Let's just go straight for #KillThePedoRoyalFamilies.  They are obviously the only ones with the power to cover up dozens of child sex-trafficking scandals throughout their land.  They are the ones caught sneaking off to pedo island.  They are going to keep this shit up until we start playing for keeps.  They are in it because they have been played by the blackmailers.  They do this and worse.

Assange is a "boiled frog," so to speak. Robinson, OTOH, was dropped like a lobster into a boiling pot. YUUUGE difference, in terms of public perception.

However, in one aspect, you are correct. There are some really good online commentators, who I like a lot - but NONE of them will name the true (((culprits))) fucking the world up today. Robinson is no exception.

I would say to any English (or any other nationality) ZHer that if you give a shit, are within range, and aren't compromised too much, the place to be this Friday at 3pm local is:

Leeds Crown Court

And just to motivate you (with apologies for the cockney woman's presentation - her accent is just plain painful, although her motives are pure) listen to a Met Whistleblower from Dec 2017 - just played it to my wife, and she was that pissed she was speechless (a rare event, I assure you).

Line of Duty?

Not even close.

Just plain fucking sick.

A protest is not effective until you hang a few.

Southern men of the USA used to hang pedos and rapists vigilante style. That was some time ago... Last time I was just ten years old.

Hang two Jews and one Muslim, then Europe will have sent a message that they are European, not mongrels.

Did something happen in the UK?  I was too busy watching the new nigger princess or some useless soccer match, while stuffing my fat face with high fructose corn syrup.

Oh, some more kids got buggered.  Pass the beer and mash.  My stomach hasn't exploded yet.  I'm sure the muzzie mayor we elected will fix everything.  Hey, what ever happened to that brexit shit I once heard about?  Any day now, right?

Said by 99% of the useless shits there.

That's because once they really get good, they get banned from all of the sites except Gab.ai. With some you have to read between the lines but here is a good start:

James Allsup

Faith Goldy

Lauren Southern

Blonde in the Belly of the Beast

Gerald Celente

PeterSweden

Jordan B Peterson

Paul Joseph Watson

As I said, you have to read between the lines. It's a delicate game of not being banned or locked out of your accounts, which I have been. Some call out the PTB for what they are, and have to walk it back later to keep their accounts, Paul Joseph Watson is a great example of this. But they all know the score. It's a game of keeping the pot bubbling long enough until a little bit of heat will boil it over.

All of these people are seriously smart with the exception of PeterSweden, who is more of a boots on the ground type.
