This Saturday – Join the opposition to the “Free Tommy” mob
UPDATE: LOCATION ANNOUNCED – 10:30 PICCADILLY CIRCUS
Tommy Robinson is back in jail for contempt of court. In an attempt to stoke anti-Muslim sentiment he livestreamed a child sexual exploitation trial, which could have resulted in those guilty going free.
The far right will be marching in London on Saturday 3rd August under the banner ‘Free Tommy’. His supporters are trying to use his imprisonment as a recruiting tool, painting him as the victim of a conspiracy. We’re going to be there to oppose them.
Tommy Robinson is part of a far-right movement spreading violence across the globe. From an increase in hate crimes to the mass shootings of Christchurch and Pittsburgh, racists and fascists are getting bolder by the day. Their words and politics are regaining mainstream legitimacy. Donald Trump and Boris Johnson parrot their words. In the US, migrants are detained in concentration camps and in the UK the ‘hostile environment’ harasses migrants through a brutal system of detention centres and deportations.
Tommy’s part in all of this? To whip up hatred against Muslims and refugees, to spread fear and to help radicalise the Finsbury Park van attacker to the point of murder.
Join us on the 3rd of August in Central London, when a coalition of anti-fascists, feminists, migrant solidarity groups, unions, and many more groups and unaffiliated people will come together to oppose Tommy Robinson and his vicious politics.
