Fascists rampage through London demanding Tommy Robinson’s release

FASCISTS rampaged through central London yesterday demanding the release of far-right activist Tommy Robinson, who has been jailed for contempt of court.

‘Tommy Robinson‘ is NOT the real name of that racist. This former member of the neonazi BNP, sentenced for violent crime and later for fraud, is called Stephen Yaxley-Lennon … err … that sounds too Irish, as neonazis hate not only Muslims, Jews, Africans, etc. etc. but Irish people as well. So, he prefers calling himself the more Germanic “Tommy Robinson“.

The far-right mob attacked police, hurling metal barriers, traffic cones, bottles, beer cans and other missiles.

The attacks began in Whitehall and police were forced out of Trafalgar Square. Participants raised their arms in nazi salutes.

Five police officers were injured and five fascists arrested. A police investigation has been launched.

A counter-demonstration was supported by 400 anti-fascists who included members of unions RMT, UCU, CWU, Unison and the NEU.

Anti-fascist campaigners warned that the size of the march should ring alarm bells for all who oppose racism, fascism and Islamophobia in Britain.

Unite Against Fascism’s Michael Bradley said: “We are sounding the alarm to the trade union and labour movement. We need to build a mass movement to drive these people back.

“Left unopposed, their protests will grow and racism and violence will grow with them.

“They are using the same kind of rhetoric against Muslims as was used by the far-right in the 1930s against the Jews. We have to learn the lessons of history.”

Speakers at the far-right rally which followed the march incited hatred against Muslims.

Defeated Ukip leadership candidate Anne Marie Waters, who heads the For Britain group, told the crowd that they must do away with the “iron grip of Islam,” and said that “the state and Islam are supreme in the UK.”

The rally had international support. Notorious Dutch racist Geert Wilders was among the speakers, and a message of support for Mr Robinson was read out from Donald Trump’s former aide Steve Bannon.

Mr Robinson was jailed in Leeds two weeks ago for using social media to comment on a case being heard in Leeds Crown Court. He was imprisoned for 13 months.

His jailing has become a cause celebre for far-right and fascist groups.

The Metropolitan Police said in a statement yesterday: “During the protest there were scenes of violence which saw bottles, metal barriers and other objects thrown at officers.

“Five officers have reported injuries … .”

Police said arrests involved possession of an offensive weapon, two for assaults on police officers, one for possession of a flare, and one for criminal damage to a bus.

“The Met will now launch a post-investigation collating the CCTV in the area,” said police.

From the Evening Standard in London today:

A spokeswoman for megasightseeing.com said: “Our London sightseeing bus was on its normal route when it got caught up in the demonstrations.

“The bus was stormed by demonstrators and the driver and a small number of customers got off.

“The demonstrators have caused a significant amount of damage to the bus which meant it had to be towed away.

“We have reported this to the police and will help them with any investigations.”

Tommy Robinson supporters were pictured performing Nazi salutes at protests calling for the far-right criminal to be released from prison. A man was filmed repeatedly making the gesture while holding a banner reading “f*** Islam” in Whitehall, London, while another Robinson supporter was photographed doing a Nazi salute in Belfast: here.

From British daily The Guardian, 9 June 2018:

A controversial pro-Conservative Facebook group has been exposed as containing Islamophobic, homophobic and racist comments about public figures including Sadiq Khan, Diane Abbott

Comments include demands to “expel the London mayor” and “send back” immigrants, while another post states that “Islam should be banned”. There are also homophobic remarks about Scottish Tory leader Ruth Davidson, posted after she announced that she was pregnant.

A 42-page dossier of abusive material from the Conservative Debating Forum, a 2,700-strong Facebook group that can be joined by invitation or by permission of moderators, has been collected by the left-leaning Red Roar blog. It found that several sitting Tory MPs, as well as dozens of Tory councillors, were members of the closed group.

The growth of the far right is a danger to us all. The Free Tommy Robinson march at the weekend shows the need to counter racist myths peddled by the right, says SABBY DHALU.

FAR-RIGHT thugs launched an unprovoked attack on senior RMT [trade union] official Steve Hedley at the weekend after he and thousands of other anti-fascists had turned out in central London to oppose a “free Tommy Robinson” march. … Earlier in the day, fascists also blockaded a bus driven by a woman in a headscarf near Trafalgar Square.: here.

RMT Union leader Steve Hedley was attacked after taking part in a counter-protest to the Trump and Robinson rally on Saturday. The union leader was attacked after speaking at a counter-protest to a rally in support of Donald Trump and jailed far-right leader Tommy Robinson: here.

The brutal assault on Steve Hedley, Assistant General Secretary of the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union, by fascist thugs Saturday is an outrage. Hedley and his partner, Bridget, were among several people ambushed by supporters of jailed far-right leader Tommy Robinson (AKA Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon) and US President Donald Trump: here.

[British trade] UNIONS must do more to mobilise members against rising far-right demonstrations, an anti-racism conference heard at the weekend: here.

TRANSPORT union RMT general secretary Mick Cash will issue a rallying cry tomorrow to the whole trade union movement to mobilise against the far right: here.
