article imageUK legal system exploited to silence protest against Abu Qatada

By Richard Milnes     Feb 3, 2013 in World
London - A High Court has granted an injunction against a demonstration outside the North London house of known Al-Qaeda terrorist threat Abu Qatada.
The protesters had intended to assemble at Canons Park tube station at midday on Saturday 2 February and then walk the short distance to Abu Qatada’s house.
It was to be the first demonstration of the newly formed street protest movement ‘English National Resistance’. However, one day prior to the intended demonstration Bindmans LLP, which specialises in ‘Human Rights Law’, were successful in gaining a High Court injunction.
Britain First, the organisation behind the demonstration, which describes itself as a “modern, responsible patriotic political movement” report on their website that they “intend to fight this injunction all the way”. They describe Bindmans LLP as a “notorious leftwing legal firm”. It is believed that the British taxpayer will be paying Bindmans’ fees for helping Abu Qatada.
The Herald Scotland quotes Britain First Administration Manager, Jim Dowson as saying, “This guy is costing taxpayers a fortune every month and he manages to get an injunction to say we can't protest outside his house, a house that we're paying for.
"We should have every right to express our democratic views and in two weeks time we'll be back at court to challenge the injunction.
"It's supposed to be a free country but if you can't protest outside the half-a-million-pound home of someone like this then that's a really big problem."
He added: "This guy is being protected around the clock by armed guards that we're paying for when there are pensioners dying of the cold. He should be put on a plane and deported."
As previously reported on Digital Journal, it is expected that Abu Qatada (known as ‘Osama Bin Laden’s right hand man in Europe’) will have cost British taxpayers over £10 million in total by the end of this year.
Demonstration near to house
Britain First reports on their Facebook page that a small demonstration still took place at a point that was as close to Abu Qatada’s house that they could legally get. “Our activists marched to the furthest point we could and held a rally of defiance, receiving huge support from locals. Speeches from Paul Pitt, Tony Curtis, Paul Golding and Dave Smeetyon. Police very happy with the conduct of our activists.” The Facebook post says.
