Story

On Wednesday December 15 at 7 am I was arrested by the anti-terror police who apparently were from Thames Valley for a Tweet in Support of the Palestinian Resistance to Genocide

Orwell’s Prediction that Freedom of Speech & Association Would Be Attacked by the State in the name of ‘Fighting Terrorism’ is Coming True

I had only just gone to bed, having finished a blog when I heard my front door bell ringing. Curious as to who was calling this early in the morning I hurriedly dressed and answered the door only to find the filth had decided on an early morning raid.

Areopagitica is Milton's famous essay that passionately defends freedom of speech and expression - perhaps Sunak and Starmer might care to read it?

A plain clothes cop dressed in an ill-fitting, crumpled grey suit announced that they had come to arrest me on ‘suspicion’ of having committed an offence under s.12 (1A) of the Terrorism Act 2000.

At the behest of the Zionists & apologists for Genocide the Police Arrested Tony Greenstein on suspicions of 'terrorism. Tony's offence was having tweeted, in response to a Zionist, that:

‘I support the Palestinians that is enough and I support Hamas against the Israeli army'

After having detained me in a police van the Police then proceeded to steal my laptop, desktop computer, two external hard drives and two mobile devices. Why you might ask did they need to remove all my electronic equipment?

If they were so confident of the flimsy case against me what need was there for my computers and phones? After all I wasn’t being arrested for having engaged in terrorism or planting bombs etc. My ‘crime’ was that I was alleged to have given my support to a proscribed organisation, Hamas. An allegation that I deny incidentally.

The real reason for the Police thefts is that they are engaged on a fishing expedition and are using a solitary tweet as an excuse for an intelligence gathering exercise. There is nothing on my computers that will enable them to press further charges that they can’t obtain from the 3,000+ blogs that I have done in 15 years.

This is an attempt to criminalise the Palestine solidarity movement. Mick Napier, Chair of Scottish PSC has also been arrested as have other people. The Terrorism Act was introduced to combat terrorism not clamp down on free speech.
