With the Brexit situation reaching boiling point the Labour MP for Tottenham David Lammy has caused consternation after calling on a mass mobilisation of people against the Brexit Demo in Central London on the 9th of December. Many have said this could lead to serious trouble on the day.
Lammy said in a leaked email to supporters:
We cannot allow this agenda of hate to be on our streets. Fascist & racist Tommy Robinson supporters will be out on the streets of London supporting the Brexit that no one wants. It is so important we mobilise to oppose them!
Lammy is supporting the event organised by Stand up to Racism and The Muslim Council of Britain with over 2000 ‘anti-fascists’ saying they will be attending. On their event page they say:
Tommy Robinson has said he and his supporters will march in London on Sunday 9th December. PLEASE NOTE this is a change of date.
UKIP leader Gerard Batten is involved in the planning of the demonstration, according to Robinson.
Robinson says this is about a “Brexit betrayal” but it is about whipping up racism and islamophobia. Whatever way you voted in the referendum, join us to oppose Robinson and his hate.
Robinson has a history of racism, Islamophobia and fascist membership of the British National Party. He of course founded the English Defence League and has recently made links with fascists and far right politicians from Geert Wilders in Holland to the Front National in France.
They want to build a far right movement here l
Protest organised by:
Stand Up to Racism
Muslim Council of Britain
Unite Against Fascism
Democracy for Brasil – UK
This comes as Tommy Robinson has called for people to mobilise to recreate the revolutionary scenes from France:
Thousands of French are bringing Paris to a standstill because of a state ‘green’ levy on petrol. Meanwhile in Britain Teresa May gives up Northern Ireland and now Gibraltar, goes back on every red line she said she would not cross and has betrayed the majority of the country and everyone just sits around and moan.
It’s time to get out on the streets and show these traitors that the question on the ballot paper was should the UK remain or leave the EU.
There was no question that asked soft, hard or in the middle. Just leave or stay. We voted to leave. Mrs Mays deal does not leave at all. We should save the 39bn and go no deal, get out of the EU like we voted and operate on WTO terms . People need to get out on the street, I’ll see you all in London on December 9th.
