EXCLUSIVE: How The Police Tried To Keep Me Away From The Trump/Tommy Rallies Yesterday

Yesterday was due to be a great day – I was heading to London nice and early ready to give a speech at the ‘Welcome Trump’ rally outside the US Embassy before heading off to Whitehall to join the ‘Free Tommy’ rally at 3pm.

However, not to my surprise, the police found a way to totally ruin my plans – as I’ve no doubt they did to countless other peaceful protestors.

Upon leaving Vauxhall station with my dad – who’d kindly driven me to London (thanks dad!), we were stopped by a police officer who had presumably seen my UKIP badge. The officer, although very friendly and affable as an individual, passed on an extremely sinister message from his bosses high up in the Met.

We were told, in no uncertain terms, that if we walked towards the US Embassy – where the Welcome Trump rally was due to take place – in groups of more than two then we would be liable to be arrested under the Public Order Act.

The officer continued to claim that no gathering outside the Embassy had been authorised, despite organisers being told the rally was to go ahead. He added that he was “all for” freedom of speech but that it was his job to ensure people were kept safe.

We were handed a sheet of paper which explained the conditions of the Section 12 of the Public Order Act including where we were allowed to gather and march.

The only place permitted for gathering was Temple Place between 2-3pm, a location which no organisation had arranged to assemble at – neither for the pro-Trump rally nor for the pro-Tommy rally.

The handout explained that “any other march associated with Welcome Trump or Free Tommy Robinson will contravene the conditions” and therefore that attending the pro-Trump march which had been planned “may lead to arrest and prosecution”.

For a 16-year-old like myself who is just trying to peacefully demonstrate, this is a very frightening prospect.

By complete coincidence, within a few minutes, UKIP’s David Kurten, YouTuber Sargon of Akkad and a member of the UKIP press team all arrived and between us, we figured we could reach millions. We recorded a livestream on my Facebook page and a video on the UKIP Twitter page explaining the situation, arguing that, quite frankly, this was a disgraceful affront to freedom of speech.

We decided that the best approach would be to, albeit reluctantly, follow the police order. We figured that our movement already had a political prisoner in Tommy Robinson and that we didn’t need any more. As such, we advised fellow patriots to head towards Temple Place where the police informed us the #FreeTommyRobinson protest was due to assemble.

However, when we went to the location that the police had told us the Tommy rally should be at, we discovered nobody was there. In fact, while on our way to the Tommy rally we spotted the pro-Trump rally that police had supposedly banned – there were thousands of people there! Of course, the police had stitched us up.

After spending a fair while trying to find the Tommy march on the route the police gave us, which we eventually concluded was non-existent, we headed to Whitehall where the rally was originally due to meet according to Tommy’s team. And, as expected, everything was going ahead as planned.

The police had fed us lies about both rallies in order to confuse us, waste our time and ultimately to stop us getting there. But it wasn’t just us; there were police all stations in the area and police monitoring every prominent path & road in the city, all giving out the same incorrect information to thousands of protestors across London.

This was not an accident. This was not a slip-up. This was a very deliberate and malicious attempt to weaken and ultimately make a mockery of our rallies.

    I saw David Kurtan’s video on his twitter feed and you both stood there and wondered… what the hell was going on!

    Now we know.
    Thanks Reece. I’ll share the hell out of this.

  2. MIKE MAUNDER says:

    Yes of course this is against free speech as well as general liberty, but the Police are being stupid at an individual level, and that is really worrying to me. I have always considered myself as thoroughly pro Police, and would give assistance to them whenever or wherever, but this ‘Political Overlay’ should never be accepted by individual Bobbies. The Law that they are ‘obliged’ to enforce, must be cancelled, or we have to accept that the Police are now a Political Enforcement Agency, along the lines of Nations that we used to either laugh at, or feel sorry for. UKIP has a lot of work to do !

  3. Ian Hensman says:

    This sort of hindrance plays along with the number of times that links to various sites of relevance to UKIPERS or other people who believe in free speech etc. are suddenly unobtainable. WE are getting more controls from bloody minded officialdom than ever. Sorry, I do not have an answer to the problem.

    Thanks for your valued info Reece

    Reece – I was there yesterday, by the river, opposite the embassy, listening to Freddy & Luke & the other speakers. Liz Jones was there, I spotted Stuart Agnew and there were loads of other Kippers, We came out of Vauxhall tube and there were police everywhere. No one took any notice of us as my ‘Welcome President Trump’ poster was rolled up in my bag & we didn’t wear our UKIP rosettes until we got there. I spotted a couple of lads in MAGA caps up ahead, they seemed to be passing unheeded, so did a lady on our tube who had her US flag rolled up in her bag, I spotted what it was from the bit sticking out so surely Plod could! OK so David K is instantly recognisable to Met cops but really – surely he could walk along Nine Elms from the station alone – he’s a London AM FFS, he’s just looking after his constituency!
    As for getting arrested – well several of us older folk, peaceful, law abiding were of the view. ‘Go on punk- make my day.’ And I was looking forward to your speech Reece.

  6. Aha, Reece.

    Police confusion, or police guile?

    It’s worse than you say.

    The Police permission under s12 POA’86 only allowed the march from Temple Place (near Temple tube station) to start between 1pm and 2pm (not 2pm and 3pm, as you wrote). A later start would have attracted the fines and custodial sentences, as below.

    But our (static) event, i.e., “assembly”, outside the US Embassy in Vauxhall (10-12 minutes walk south from Vauxhall station) started, when scheduled, at about 12:35 pm, and continued, also as expected, for 90 minutes, until finishing a little before 2pm. As the police knew.

    It would then take up to an hour to get from the US Embassy all the way to Temple Place (not as a march, for that would have been in breach of s12 conditions – punishable by £200 fines for each breach by marchers, and for the organisers, a three month custodial sentence plus a £2,500 fine) and not 5 minutes. Plus the time to “form up”.

    This means that, unless time travel was possible, the police had well and truly put the kibosh on the march taking place.

    So, as you’ve realised, that march from Temple Place, which location was plucked out the blue by the Police, didn’t take place at all.

    There were not one, not two, not three but FOUR Police helicopters simultaneously deployed.

    Meanwhile, the stabbings, murders, burglaries and thefts continue spiralling – thanks, Khan and Dick.

  7. When you are on your way to a demo, don’t wear anything that tells the police where you are going. No hats or badges, and if you are carrying a flag use a telescopic flagpole that easily packs away. Keep everything in your bag and then bring it all out when you arrive.

  8. Mike Newland says:

    Well it did not work and both rallies went ahead with no trouble at all at the actual events. Plenty of people and a credit to all in their good behaviour. It was a great day.

  9. Alan Williams says:

    Something similar happened to me. I gleaned from the Internet that the pro-Trump rally as to start from Temple Place. When I got there just before 12.00 there plenty of police but no gathering supporters so I asked the police where the gathering was. They indicated somewhere else. But nothing seemed to gell. So I tried the internet again and came up with the new embassy. And there it was but the crowd was much smaller than I anticipated. The police on the other hand were getting money for nothing except perspiration in their riot gear.

    At the Embassy I met Alan Craig and we both set off for the Free Tommy demonstration. We had been told about the strange police direction of not travelling in more than twos. We found it after seeing (and hearing) the opposition near the Houses of Parliament complete with masked activists.

  10. David says:

    Exactly what happened to me on the 9th June rally; I asked a group of policeman where the stage was for the Free Tommy speeches and they sent me in the wrong direction. This negative approach antagonises the marchers and is designed to provoke a reaction.

  11. Russell Hicks says:

    That’s flipping ridiculous. Of course, if UKIP’s database hadn’t been catastrophically reduced by numptyism, we could produce a video about this and get it to a huge audience…and embarrass the police and ‘government’. But until we get our act together online, we’ll carry on being outflanked and silenced.

  12. John Carins says:

    Conclusion? The Police are against free speech unless they can march with “Pride” and other virtue signalling organisations.

  13. Mike Mullis says:

    Populists organisations and individuals must realise that law enforcement agencies are not present at events to protect their rights or keep them safe. They are pre-programed by intensive anti-White ADL and Common Purpose indoctination to despise nationalists and their ideology, and they will always view them, despite all evidence to the contrary, as the primary danger.

    Tony Blair’s Common Purpose controlled Metropolitan Police, destroying Freedom of Speech and aiding the Mohammadan Invasion and Conquest of the UK.
