No Thanks, Winnicki

Robert Winnicki

Aberystwyth Arts Centre in Wales recently held an LGBT fundraiser which netted over £2,000 to support rights organisations in Uganda and Russia.

Bad timing for fascist leader Robert Winnicki, who was hoping to do a Scott Lively/Oxford Union type appearance.

PLANS by a right-wing Polish leader to hold a talk at Aberystwyth University ended after the university blocked it from going ahead, following protests from gay people.

Over 50 Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) activists and anti-fascist campaigners gathered in Bank Square on Friday evening to demonstrate against the visit by Robert Winnicki.

A poster was distributed saying that Mr Winnicki’s talk was taking place at Old College on Friday, 25 October, but the university moved to pull the plug on it, saying it was not an “official” event.

It is understood that Mr Winnicki, who is said to hold “extreme” homophobic and anti-Semitic views, ended up holding a private event in front of around 10 people in someone’s home.

It is absolutely stunning that the UK Border Agency happily allows poeple like this into the country whilst simultaneously assisting in the death of a Ugandan lesbian.

Priorities, anyone?
