Rushdie assange

Nothing I am about to write should be read as diminishing in any way my sympathy for Salman Rushdie, or my outrage at the appalling attack on him. Those who more than 30 years ago put a fatwa on his head after he wrote the novel, “The Satanic Verses,” made this assault possible. They deserve contempt. I wish him a speedy recovery.

Dear friends,

After seeing and then posting this video by Graham Phillips I got so disgusted by what was being done to him by the British authorities that I decided to contact him and ask him a few very basic question about his situation in the hope to introduce him to a larger audience, give visibility to his case and to try to offer him as much support as possible.  So I emailed Graham who very kindly took the time to answer my questions.  Here is our full exchange below.

New Police powers are coming into force next week!

On 28th June, most of the powers in the Police, Crime and Sentencing Act will come into force. This includes the changes to the Public Order Act that will allow the police to impose conditions on protests that are too noisy.
