Thousands of patriots and free speech protesters assembled at Whitehall yesterday to defy the political imprisonment of Tommy Robinson, who has now been in prison for almost two months. We in Generation Identity made our presence known by deploying two banners, one declaring “British girls matter, stop grooming gangs” and another declaring that Tommy Robinson is set free.

Tommy Robinson sits in a prison cell because he dared to call out the systematic grooming of thousands of young British girls, whilst his imprisonment was swift the perpetrators of these sex crimes go through long, winded legal processes. This means victims and their families have to endure emotional pain.
