Jez Turner Appears at London Magistrates’ Court
AFTER VACILLATING for over a year, the authorities have finally decided that Jez Turner of the London Forum should face charges relating to the ‘Stirring up of Racial or Religious Hatred’. It has taken them a while to arrive at this decision. Clearly, Mr Turner represents a threat to certain individuals in our society who wish to have him silenced. Supporters of the nationalist cause filled the public gallery to overflowing and a new court room had to be found to accommodate the public. Magistrates decided that the case is far too serious to be judged at this level, and arranged for it to be heard at Southwark Crown Court in the latter half of November 2017. So Mr Turner, ex-soldier, a man of wholly good character, and no previous convictions, has to face what amounts to a very serious charge at a high-profile Crown Court — for the non-violent crime of daring to speak the truth.
In Britain, the basic right to freedom of speech has never been under such tyranny in living memory. Mr Turner is leading a vanguard in the struggle to oppose those who seek to deliberately silence people of good character for their own duplicitous purposes.This is the first in a series of videos covering the hearings and trial(s).
