Following the protest at the Hodge Hill TESCO over the weekend Shabana Mahmood MP said:

"It's an important right in this country to be able to air ones views and to think and say what we like without fear of violence or retribution.

"Peaceful demonstrations and protests play a large part in that and I have been on my fair share.

This is a desperate situation. Waiting for the next wave of attacks is no way to live and, like many other onlookers, I fear where this is going to end.
