Robinson wrongfully jailed for exposing Islamic pedophile grooming gangs.
Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, who goes by the name Tommy Robinson, was jailed for contempt of court after live-streaming defendants outside Leeds Crown Court during a criminal trial on the sexual exploitation of girls in Huddersfield. His supporters claim he was jailed for journalism.
Tommy Robinson’s supporters clashed with the police on Saturday, 3 August as protesters took to the streets to demand his release from jail. The demonstrators reportedly threw chairs and bottles at police officers in the centre of the city. People have reportedly been arrested in the standoff.
The protesters, chanting “We want Tommy out”, were separated by a line of officers and vehicles from rival groups of activists.
