This past week a man in the UK was arrested outside of a court mid livestream while waiting for the verdict on a grooming gang trial. The grooming gangs are gangs of muslims in the UK who target underage White / British girls for rape and prostitution.

A trial of two of those charged took place last week, and one man- Tommy Robinson was livestreaming outside of the courthouse while waiting to hear the verdict. In the middle of his livestream he was arrested for “incitement/breach of the peace”. In less than a day he was arrested, charged and sentenced to jail. And not only that, the judge put a gag order on the media restricting them from reporting on it (A thread on that here with some addendums at the end). The arrest of a man reporting on a trial involving child rapists and the subsequent banning of media being able to report his arrest has led to protests and worldwide outrage. Donald Trump Jr even sent a tweet denouncing this tyranny. This is the state of free speech / media freedom / justice in the UK. This is why we can never let our rights be infringed upon here.
