@WMPolice This is getting out of hand. Why isn't anyone doing anything? @birmingham_live @birminghampost peaceful group putting up posters and get egged and abused by anti-gay protesters
Outside Anderton Park pri school. What its going to take before action is taken? Residents are terrified of vigilante attacks and it's happening as I type. People abused because they showing solidarity to lgbt famliies. @BrumLeader @WMPolice
Empty twiiter platitudes mean nothing
As far as I am aware, a group showing solidarity with Anderton Park sch and lgbt families where putting love posters on railings. Numerous guys show up in cars, start harressing residents/supporters. Told big burly anti-gay guys. Throwing eggs, abuse, somebody may have collapsed
I believe police have finally showed up but prepatrators have gone. Have been told a protest is scheduled tomorrow and parents encouraged to pull children out of school. @BrumLeader is this how you handle cohesion in your city? @UKLabour do you think this will encourage voters?
I am so cross. I get that. But even with a reasoned head this is part of the reason people are so utterly disillusioned with politicians. The situation in #Birmingham has got out of hand because local Clls/MPs in Birmingham are too afraid to deal with an issue of equality.#SRE
@educationgovuk @DamianHinds are also afraid to deal with this. Unfairly leaving dedicated school staff, volunteers & children to deal with extremists. It is both @UKLabour.@Conservatives local & national politicians who are failing residents and children. #SRE
I have been on both sides, community activist, politician, back to community activist. Why? Because there are few politicians in the UK who have integrity when things get difficult. When they will lose voters but still do the right thing knowing they may lose their job.
And there doesn't seem to be many of those politicans in #Birmingham, Clls & MPs atm. This is simple. Equality for all is taught in all state schools. If you don't like that as a parent, choose different education options. We are a secular democracy. #SRE
When our politicans choose supporting an ultra conversative minority of people who discriminate against other minorities/women rather then standing by their own party values & basic human rights, is when our democracy has failed. It's why you get Farage, brexit & such nonsense
It's why you end up with people like me & my family, former Labour becoming floating voters. It's so damm pointless. You know who suffers most? Young Muslim lgbt children. Rejected by @UKLabour @Conservatives rejected by their familes. For what? Votes. Frankly it's repugnant #SRE
Apparently about thirty men in balaclavas turned up on a tiny cul de sac, throwing eggs & abuse. Homes supporting lgbt communities displaying rainbow flags have been threatened with being bricked. Bricked. Flags have been taken down. This is dangerous.
This isn't peaceful. This is political Islamism whose supporters been allowed to believe are above the law of the land. BME women, minorities, young people, ex Muslims, we have been warning about this for years. If this was half a mile in #Moseley, it would have been dealt with.
I am going to add to this thread to keep it in one place. Some families on the tiny cul de sac that is Dennis Road, support equal rights. They put rainbow flags outside their windows in a show of solidarity with lgbt communities. Another group support discrimination against lgbt
People & report in to an intimidating male rent-a-mob. Think Tommy Robinson & crew but brown skinned & Muslim extremists. Similar tactics, faces covered, aggressive, spoiling for a fight. Funny how the left haven't heard of the former but shout about the latter. #SRE
The pro equal rights residents want the daily hate demo to be moved to another location. They agree in the right to protest. They disagree that they should be threatened, abused & have to hide indoors when rent-a-mob turn up. This can be done 👇#SRE
Apparently @WMPolice seem to disagree...curious after weeks & weeks of hate chants residents are informed the police can't do anything. Funny that. I am sure if Tommy & crew were holding a daily stall on a street in Small Heath saying 'don't teach our kids about Muslims" action
Would be taken. But hey we don't have a problem with Islamists within our education system. The way close knit communities work is via the community grapevine. Mr anti-lgbt & rent-a-mob are called & informed of any activities. Community vigilante policing. Happens in South Asia
Similar practices here within large minority communities. This is what happened last night. Pro-equality residents warned about displaying rainbow flags. They received threats. They took the flags down. Why risk your life when police/politicians stand by & wring their hands?
Now apparently 'action is going to be taken' Weeks& weeks after daily abuse. Welcome to facism disguised as 'religious freedom'. Welcome to Great Britian where our politicians perform for the cameras & pat themselves on the back for sitting on their hands & watching it burn. #SRE
