Tommy Robinson just phoned me.
He’s supposed to be having a quiet vacation with his family. But he can’t. He’s had to go to the hospital twice, because of the physical abuse he suffered in prison.
They starved him. He lost 40 pounds in two months. He clearly has a form of post-traumatic stress, too, from being locked up in solitary confinement for so long, and being constantly threatened with violence from Muslim prison gangs.
You can see that just by watching the video of him when he was released. He’s not quite himself yet. But, he will get better. Even just being out of prison, and playing with his kids, will help him heal.
Tommy told me the bad news: they want to send him back to prison.
Three weeks from now.
On September 4th.
Just last week the Court of Appeal confirmed that Tommy was improperly tried, improperly convicted, improperly sentenced, and improperly imprisoned. That’s why they set him free. It was a total vindication of everything Tommy had said.
But now the UK government wants to do it all over again. They’re not done with Tommy.
They want to put him through a second trial — for the exact same thing, his Facebook livestream that day back in May, in Leeds.
They want to put him in prison again. That will probably kill him.
You saw him after two months in solitary confinement. Now imagine him after 13 months.
Tommy is in jeopardy. So Tommy phoned me and asked me to help him one more time. Just until he’s better.
And I told him I would.
He needs help to pay for the lawyers — because they’ve got to prepare for that September hearing. So I’ve talked to the lawyers. They’ve started preparing.
And I’ve set up a crowdfunding page again. You can contribute below or click here to donate in British pounds.
The British government has unlimited funds. I think they’re trying to break Tommy — physically, psychologically and now financially.
There’s no way he can do this by himself. But if enough of us stand together with him, we’ve got a chance.
We’re also starting a massive petition, that we will personally deliver to the new Attorney General, demanding that they suspend their persecution of Tommy.
Tommy’s already served two months in prison improperly — it’s astounding that the UK government wants him to serve more time. Please sign our petition here.
I thought we were done last week with the Court of Appeal victory. But we’re not. The UK government wants to fight with Tommy — now that they think he’s weakened. Well, they forgot about one thing — they forgot about us, didn’t they?
Please help with Tommy’s legal fees. His lawyers need to prepare for the case immediately. You can contribute below now — let’s help our friend one last time.
