Thousands gathered at Speakers corner to hear Tommy Robinson read a speech written by Martin Sellner. Sellner was earlier banned from entering the UK due to comments made about Islam. Robinson told Breitbart London “The True battle for free speech started today, this is just the start.”

The event also saw small clashes between Robinson supporters and Islamic groups. However it has become increasingly clear that freedom of speech is a growing concern for many. Robinson will remain a lightening rod as this issue rumbles on into the future.
