Subject: FW: Fascist Britain; Another street preacher arrested

Many of us have been warning about the rise of the police state for years now. This below is what happens in a police state. Communism, fascism, socialism, marxism etc call it whatever you want, its all the same and results in the loss of your freedoms. Those who have spoke out tend to be targetted first and some have had to emigrate for this reason! It will of course be seen by all the public in due course.

Crooked lawyers and judges using their invented laws (that are not part of our common law heritage/constitution) and being carried out by brainwashed "useful idiots" are causing this loss to our freedoms.

BREAKING CASE NEWS: Another street preacher arrested
Rev Josh Williamson
A Christian street preacher was arrested in Scotland yesterday (18 SEP) whilst addressing a crowd on a high street in Perth.

This is now the third arrest of a Christian street preacher since July. Tony Miano was arrested in London in July and Robbie Hughes was arrested in Basildon earlier this month.

“Breach of the peace”

Rev Josh Williamson, the pastor of Craigie Reformed Baptist Church in Perth, regularly takes to the streets to hand out leaflets, talk to passers-by and do open-air preaching.

But yesterday a police officer told him to stop preaching because he was breaking the law.

The officer insisted that he was not allowed to preach and told Josh that he would be arrested if he continued. When Josh said that he would not comply because he was not breaking the law, the officer placed him under arrest for breach of the peace.

Josh was taken to Perth police station, interviewed and released with a caution.

A second man, who spoke up in defence of Rev Williamson’s right to preach, was also arrested at the scene.

Injustice

Andrea Minichiello Williams, CEO of Christian Legal Centre, said:

“This is the third arrest in as many months. These street preachers are not breaking any laws and are perfectly within their rights. The police are overreaching their authority and misapplying the law. Their actions show an increasing hostility towards Christianity.

“Freedom of speech is a precious freedom that we must uphold. This injustice must be tackled to halt the chilling effect already felt by many Christians. The threat to freedom of speech is a concern for wider society, not just for Christians.

“It’s evident that police all over the UK need clear guidance on this matter. Three wrong arrests in three months just shows the level of ignorance that currently exists. It’s up to police chiefs to take a lead and issue guidelines so that this stops happening.”
