The British descent into total tyranny takes another step forward
Madison Ruppert, Contributing Writer
After the riots in London and throughout the UK I was quick to report on the full spectrum push against democracy and freedom from all sectors of the British government, including Prime Minister David Cameron.
It started with calls to shut down social media in times of government-declared emergency and even resulted in the imprisonment of two young men for four years because they failed to incite a riot on Facebook.
These moves seem tame to what has now emerged in Britain: a blanket ban on all demonstrations, marches, protests and other gatherings in several areas of London for a whopping 30 days starting September 2nd.
The ban was put in place by Theresa May, the Home Secretary, and it will cover Tower Hamlets in East London along with for neighboring boroughs in London.
The moratorium was declared after a request was placed by acting Commissioner of the Scotland Yard, Tim Godwin, amongst fears that more violence would be caused if protests were allowed to continue.
Theresa May attempted to justify this undemocratic ban on protests by saying that, “Having carefully considered the legal tests in the Public Order Act and balanced rights to protest against the need to ensure local communities and property are protected, I have given my consent to a ban on all marches in Tower Hamlets and four neighbouring boroughs for a 30-day period”.
This effectively blocked the plan for an English Defense League rally in the capitol, along with opposing anti-racist rallies organized by the British chapter of Unite Against Fascism and United East End.
However, the groups Unite Against Fascism and United East End plan to move forward with the anti-Fascist march on September 3rd regardless of the moratorium.
