Media SILENCE After THOUSANDS March On Whitehall With Tommy Robinson and Gerard Batten
The mainstream media have remained totally silent following one of the largest political marches in recent years in Britain.
On Sunday, around 5,000 protestors met in Speakers Corner in Hyde Park and made their way to Whitehall where they heard speeches from leading advocates of free speech including Tommy Robinson, Raheem Kassam and Gerard Batten outside Downing Street.
Despite the scale and significance of the protest, the mainstream print and televised media totally ignored the march and attempted to hide its existence.
The BBC, ITV, Channel 4, virtually all newspapers and most other online publications printed absolutely nothing about the protest, despite pictures and videos of the march going viral all over social media outlets (where they weren’t already banned).
The few outlets that did report on the march described it as ‘far-right’ and typically described the protestors as ‘thugs’, despite the fact that the freedom supporters hurt nobody but their opposition were filmed punching a police officer and sent at least one freedom campaigner to hospital.
The main groups making up the protest were the Veterans Against Terrorism and the Democratic Football Lads Alliance, with the former also acting as a security team for UKIP Leader Gerard Batten who led the march into Whitehall.
Young Independence (YI), UKIP’s Youth Wing, also turned out in great numbers, proudly flying their YI flag and UKIP flag during the march and speeches.
