London Metropolitan police are preparing for clashes between black lives matter activists and right wing groups this weekend in London, following a call by Tommy Robinson for counter-protests to defend memorials and statues.
Ken Marsh, chairman of the Metropolitan Police Federation, warned “We have got the perfect storm ahead of us this weekend, we have got planned protests and now Tommy Robinson and his agitators.”
Robinson released a short video in which he accused police of being “soft-handed” and allowing BLM protesters to deface memorials and statues, saying that police didn’t want the bad publicity of clashing with non-white protesters.
Robinson endorsed planned counter-demonstrations by multiple football ‘firms’ saying that “If you give a shit at all about our country, our history, our culture, our identity. I expect you are going to be in London next Saturday.”
Robinson noted that police removed the small group of “lads” who were guarding the Winston Churchill statue in London last weekend, only for BLM to then deface it.
Reports indicate that other groups also intend to join the fray, such as ‘Veterans Against Terrorism’, and even biker groups like the ‘Hells Angels’.
Video has already emerged of some members of one of the afore-mentioned ‘firms’ chasing down and delivering beatings to rioters in London this week:
