Geert Wilders, who made strides in the Dutch elections last year, passed through Immigration to speak at a Free Tommy Robinson Rally held in London yesterday (June 9). A huge number of people turned out for the rally, Breitbart News reported.

There were also Free Tommy Robinson rallies elsewhere. The Daily Mail UK pointed out on June 9 that as Australian television host Sonia Kruger is connected with the Tommy Robinson arrest, that they are also raising much protest against Robinson's detention.

Tommy Robinson was arrested and convicted on the same day

Tommy was arrested while talking into a smartphone and live streaming it outside the court where a grooming gang trial was taking place. He was convicted and sentenced the same day under his real name, Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon.

There were already reporting restrictions on the trial before Tommy was arrested. This is to prevent a miscarriage of justice if jurors read something that could influence them. Channel 4 on YouTube noted that Tommy was arrested for causing a breach of the peace but was convicted and jailed for contempt of court.

Initially, there was a hold on media reporting on the sentencing of Robinson in the UK by a court order, but The Daily Star UK reported that "it was overturned by local publication Leeds Live" in May.

This did not stop the story from reaching the far corners of the world.

Wilders spoke passionately about the arrest

Closer to home in the UK, Wilders, whose Twitter account describes him as a "Chairman of the Party for Freedom (PVV)," and a "Member of Parliament, Netherlands," spoke passionately about the detention of Robinson.

His speech was posted up by him on his Twitter account.

Tommy Robinson is the greatest freedom fighter of Britain today. Tommy Robinson is a freedom fighter. He says what no-one dares to say. He has guts. He has courage...And that is more than we can say for all those people that govern us," Wilders said. He said many other things along the same lines.

Protester clashed with police

Metro UK reported that some of the protesters clashed with the police who covered the rally in London. They noted that images had been seen on social media showing protesters "hurling missiles and smoke bombs" at the outnumbered police officers.

Tempers have been riding high ever since the members of the grooming gang were arrested and the story broke in mainstream media. The police and the UK authorities have been under fire in the UK over both the handling of the grooming cases and the arrest and detention of Tommy Robinson. Now it seems that many people across the world are not afraid to have their say on both sides of the story.
