Persecuted independent journalist and activist Tommy Robinson will be speaking at a Capitol Hill event discussing the censorship of those who talk about Islam on Wednesday afternoon.

Robinson will be appearing via Skype, telling Gateway Pundit that he has accepted an invitation to go to Australia for ten days and does not want to be away from his family for too long. He has received many invitations to come and speak in the US and is planning a proper tour for a future date.

“I want to bring my warning to America, not just to Congress — but all corners of America,” Robinson told the Gateway Pundit. “I think it’s better to plan a proper tour. My message is too important to cram into four days.”

Wednesday’s event is being hosted by the Middle East Forum and is titled, “Silenced! Censoring Public Discussion of Islam.” Others on the panel include MEF President Daniel Pipes and Rebel Media founder Ezra Levant.

“The pattern is clear: Question Sharia Law — and find yourself banned from Facebook and Twitter. Criticize a radical Imam, get fined. Call for limits on immigration, get fired. Plan a talk on female genital mutilation, get deplatformed,” the MEF invitation reads.

The MEF is an activist-think tank that identifies and promotes American interests as they relate to the Middle East and Islam.

The event will be taking place from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the Rayburn House Office Building. The MEF asks that people register to attend and arrive early with a photo ID to get through security. They will be providing lunch and ask that guests wear business attire.

Robinson had also been invited by seven members of Congress to come and speak before the Conservative Opportunity Society, a caucus of conservative members of the US House of Representatives at 8 a.m. on Wednesday — but that will likely happen at a later date. Signatories on the invitation included Rep. Paul Gosar, Rep. Steve King, Rep. Ralph Norman, Rep Brian Babin, Rep. Scott Perry, Rep. Andy Harris and Rep Louie Gohmert.

Robinson told Gateway Pundit that he has an open invitation to come speak before Congress any time that he wants — so there is no need to rush his visit.

“I have so many people I would like to thank in the United States that I want to plan it properly. I want to thank everyone who helped to free me in person,” Robinson said.
