EDL Leaders Given A Warm Reception By Ordinary People In The United States, Despite Harassment of Leader by Agents Of The United States Government
Representatives of the International Civil Liberties Alliance (ICLA) had the pleasure and the privilege to meet members of the English Defence League (EDL) leadership team in New York last weekend.
We are a US based international organisation and it was an honour for us to welcome them to the USA, a country which has much admiration and respect for their efforts if the views of ordinary people are deemed worthy of consideration. Some of us were with them at the airport after the shameful deportation of EDL leader Tommy Robinson. We strongly condemn this action against a friend of the people of the United States by US border officials. We wonder how much collusion took place at government level between the two countries. We know that the British government want to censor the views of the EDL, but the US authorities have denied the American people the right to hear the opinions of this important British leader. The British authorities might not like it, but Tommy Robinson is an important British voice now and he will grow more important in the future, especially as the British elite continue to hound and persecute him.
