Yesterday I went to the Old Bailey — my fifth court appearance so far, all because I expressed my political views on Facebook, while standing outside a Muslim rape gang trial in Leeds a few months ago.
I knew there was a chance I’d be sent back to prison yesterday. So I packed a bag and kissed my family goodbye — I didn’t know when I’d see them again.
Fortunately, the judge agreed to refer my case to the Attorney General, rather than proceeding with a trial on his own. And there is still a chance that the government will come to its senses and drop this political vendetta against me.
The judge said he made his decision after reading my witness statement, which my legal counsel had sent to him in advance.
I then went outside the court and read that same witness statement to the 2,000+ people outside the court.
You can watch a video of that speech, here:
Thank you for your support — I promise to keep fighting for our freedoms.

Ezra Levant talks to Tommy Robinson outside court: Sept 27/18
Judges have decided Tommy Robinson should be released from prison after being jailed for contempt of court.
Robinson is nog niet van zijn rechtszaak af. Volgens de rechtbank moet er een nieuwe zitting komen, met een andere rechter. Tot die tijd is Robinson vrij man. De rechter bepaalde wel dat de eerdere veroordeling tot de voorwaardelijke straf van 13 maanden, voor minachting van de rechtbank, wel blijft staan.
