UK blocks Wilders from #FreeTommyRobinson rally

The British government has blocked Dutch MP Geert Wilders from speaking at a rally in support of political prisoner Tommy Robinson in London, according to the popular Dutch politician.

Published: July 12, 2018, 9:44 am

    Wilders tweeted that the UK refused security measures to prevent him from attending the July 14th event at Whitehall.

    “UK Ambassador in The Hague just informed the Dutch authorities that they will not provide for my security in London this Saturday and will not give the Dutch diplomatic police weapon permits either, so unfortunately I cannot attend nor speak at the #FreeTommy rally in London,” Wilders tweeted on Wednesday.

    The safety of Wilders, one of the most prominent anti-Islamisation politicians in the world, will not be guaranteed without an armed security detail. Wilders has endured a constant slew of public death threats from Islamists.

    The Dutch opposition leader has lived under round-the-clock police protection since 2004 and moves between various safe houses and fortified locations.

    Wilders traveled to London in June to appear at “Free Tommy” without problems, but his return to London in support of Robinson now seems unlikely.

    Tommy Robinson was arrested in May while reporting outside the trial of an accused Islamic rape gang, convicted of being in “contempt of court,” and sentenced to 13 months in prison.

    Mass demonstrations calling for Robinson’s release from prison have been on-going since his arrest.

    The leader of a Pakistani Islamist group has meanwhile threatened to “wipe Holland off the face of the earth” in a nuclear attack because of a Prophet Muhammad cartoon competition announced by Wilders.

    Khadim Hussain Rizvi, the leader of Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan (TLP), issued the warning last week. “If they give me the atom bomb, I would remove Holland from the face of the earth before they can hold a competition of caricatures,” he told the Times of India.

    The Dutch Freedom Party, the leading opposition party in parliament after coming in second place in elections last March, said the plan to hold the competition in the party’s secure offices in Dutch Parliament had been approved by the Dutch Counter-terrorism Agency NCTV.

    “Freedom of speech is threatened, especially for Islam critics,” Wilders said in a statement. “We should never accept that. Freedom of speech is our most important freedom.”

    In the US, Antifa members rushed to a #FreeTommyRobinson prayer vigil in San Francisco, in California, attacking an elderly woman. They stole her hat and glasses and then attacked her when she resisted.

    The video, taken Saturday, July 7, shows around fifteen masked individuals starting a verbal confrontation, while one of the Antifas steals a MAGA hat off an older woman’s head and takes her glasses off, causing the woman to defend herself with pepper spray, a gesture which ended in a brawl.
