UPDATE: Vlad has been sent a full accounting by Martin Brennan’s mate Matthew, that further sheds light on the entire matter. Go there for more.
According to Brennan, he has participated in the Tower Hamlets demonstration, as well as the wreath laying ceremony at the American embassy in downtown London on 9/11. He also attended with the EDL Anjem Choudary’s disgraceful gathering for the purpose of burning the US flag on the same day.
Martin says he also took the time to hurl some insults at Choudary and his group on the day, during which time he was assaulted by a police officer. He managed to record footage of this.
Martin Brennan also informs the TT that he has on his phone some video from the 9/11 demo. He was outside the main body of the EDL, and so captured some interesting things there. He was supposed to head back to a friend’s house to upload it to a pc and then to youtube, but changed his mind and stayed on in town.
According to an anonymous source, police intelligence have just been around to a friend’s house looking for him, offering money for intelligence on Brennan. He said he didn’t know where Martin was. According to the anonymous source, the police said: “we’ll pay for you to go to some demos plus a bit of extra in your pockets to tell us who’s who and what’s what”. That’s a direct quote from Martin according to the anonymous source.
According to the unnamed source, Matthew’s response was a rather direct:”F* off, I”ll do ten years in prison instead.”
But back to Martin. The long arm of British law is crashing down on dissent, it appears that having video footage of a police officer breaking the law is the catalyst for the hunt. After all, while he was filming them, they were filming him. If he does indeed have video evidence of police brutality against EDL members, then there would be a need to get it before it’s uploaded to You Tube. KGS
