“I’m in court on Tuesday fighting for our freedom – AGAIN!
I spent almost three months in prison, wrongfully convicted for the crime of journalism.
I was reporting outside of a grooming gang trial in Leeds, and while standing outside of the courthouse I was suddenly arrested on trumped-up charges.
I was covering a grooming-gang trial when I was arrested, tried, convicted, sentenced to 13 months in prison, and jailed – all in the course of five hours. And I was even denied access to counsel during the process.
To make matters worse, they moved me to a prison with one of the highest Muslim populations, where radicals wanted me dead. They forced me to enter into solitary confinement just to remain alive.
And then, thanks to your efforts I was able to walk free.
The #FreeTommy movement began during my prison stay. You protested in the streets and shared articles and videos about my wrongful conviction.
Together, we fought back, and you sent a message to the establishment.
The highest justice in the land, wrote a judgment rejecting the kangaroo-courts verdict. It was a real victory for our movement.
But now they want to put me back in prison!
On Tuesday, 14 May I am due back in court because the government is trying to see if they can re-open the case against me.
Now I am forced to take a day off from my MEP campaign trail, to go to London and fight for my freedom – AGAIN.
And I need your help.
Please join me on Tuesday, 14th May in London outside the Old Bailey at 1:00 P.M. for a family-friendly #FreeTommy rally.
Please share this page and this video with your friends and family.
It’s important that you attend, they need to know that we are united and I’m not alone.
WHAT: #FreeTommy rally outside of the Old Bailey where I’ll be in court.
WHEN: Tuesday, 14th May at 1:00 P.M.
WHERE: Outside the Old Bailey, London EC4M 7EH
WHY: Because they want to throw me back in jail for trumped up charges that were already dropped and rejected by the highest justice in the land.”
Together we can send them a message they’ll never forget.
