The political imprisonment and government-ordered media blackout of journalist Tommy Robinson has sparked millions to protest worldwide.
Free speech advocate on both sides of the political spectrum have taken to the streets to protest the Orwellian decision by the British government to censor Robinson’s heroic reporting on Muslim pedophile grooming gangs.
Zerohedge.com reports: 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 (archived) 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 police] said nothing about the court proceedings. It’s very strange.”
