CENSORED Video Will WIN Tommy The Election,
A NEWLY-SURFACED VIDEO TAKEN DURING THE MUSLIM VIOLENCE IN OLDHAM WILL ‘WIN TOMMY THE ELECTION’ DESPITE THE POLICE TRYING TO CENSOR IT, POPULAR POLITICAL COMMENTATOR AVI YEMINI HAS CLAIMED.
I embedded the video here, but as it can no longer be shared anybody wishing to watch it has to go through the palava described below after following a link. It's well worth doing if you can.
The footage, along with others contained within the 20-minute video, as Avi points out, has already come under fire, with panicked media chiefs and police officials allegedly contacting YouTube itself in a desperate bid to restrict the video’s reach. An age restriction has also been placed on the clip, meaning that people have to physically sign-in to YouTube to view it; an act that police understand not many ever bother doing.
Nor is the video appearing in the suggested videos section of YouTube, and some subscribers have reported that notifications for the video also appear to have been tampered with.
"This is censorship, and it’s actually happening” says Avi. “It’s real. The proof is in the pudding”.
Voting is today. Tommy's last rally was in Salford, Manchester last night. There were two arrests but it's not easy to pick out the exact details from the report of one of the local newspapers, the Manchester Evening News
Two people have been arrested by police after chaotic scenes following a Tommy Robinson rally in Salford. The far-right activist held his final event at Mocha Parade ahead of the European elections tomorrow.
While he was speaking to a crowd of several hundred, a large group held an anti-fascist counter-demonstration.
The rally passed off peacefully but trouble began afterwards when police attempted to escort demonstrators away from Mocha Parade.
As the stand-off moved down Lower Broughton Road, police were heard to shout ‘missile’. Officers ran towards a young man who was then detained. This sparked tense scenes in which some of the crowd confronted police and officers were seen using their batons.
A man was also arrested as officers from the Tactical Aid Unit arrived to provide reinforcements. The road was briefly blocked off by riot vans as the crowd jeered.
As the newspaper does not say that a 'far-right' thug/supporter/racist/insult of choice was arrested my assumption is that it was one (or two) of the left-wing trade union or SUTR 'demonstrators' that was arrested. That the newspaper is refering to those who came to hear Tommy as "the crowd" and the "anti-fascist counter-demonstration" as the "demonstration". or "protestors" A political hustings not being by definition a demonstration, but a group protesting about the political hustings would be such. That may be mere semantics, but as I try to chose my words carefully I would hope that a paid journalist would do the same.
Some pelted the police with what appeared to be eggs and shouted ‘scum’. Eventually, the two people detained were taken away and the crowd dispersed.
Some people did something, is about the size of it.
If I'm not very much mistaken that is Anne Marie Walters speaking on Tommy's behalf. Not that the reporter felt inclined to tell the readers who said what.
Captioned "Protesters at the rally", you can see the Socialist Worker placards behind the red flags of red bloc and the purple banner of Salford City branch of Unison the trade union.
