After our group account and several member accounts were suspended from Twitter it has now become apparent we were targeted by far right extremist troll groups seeking to prevent our views on tolerance and diversity from reaching a wide audience.
This has had no impact whatsoever on the reporting we are doing on Twitter. The majority of our members were intentionally unbranded and have therefore escaped being targeted. Both myself and Halal Kitty have new accounts and are taking full advantage of the fact we are not blocked by haters to pass key tweets out to our network for action.
We would also like to thank Anonymous who supported us by tweeting out their positive views of our anti fascist organisation to their 1.6 million followers.
