A notorious leading campaigner for Britain’s open borders movement has been sentenced after he was found to have attacked nationalists during a rally in Dover in January.
Syed Bokhari – perhaps best known as the co-founder of the “humanitarian” group London2Calais – was sentenced to a 12 month community order and 150 hours unpaid work after admitting to threatening behaviour at Thanet Magistrates Court this week.
The 28-year-old former London riots convict turned “humanitarian” was found to have hurled objects at demonstrators in Dover during a clash of hard left and nationalists, as reported by Breitbart London.
According to the Dover Express, Mr. Bokhari, “can be seen throwing missiles at… protestors and fighting on the footage – but the security cameras don’t show where they landed.”
“Julie Farbrace, prosecuting, said two groups clashed near Dover Priory Station and Bokhari was part of a group of left wing demonstrators.”
Breitbart London has previously exposed Mr. Bokhari’s threatening behaviour, and the actions of his pro open borders wife, Mona Dohle.
In February, Mr. Bokhari used a speech to his fellow activists to promise to use “Palestinian tactics” to “bring [the UK] government to its knees”.
While it is unclear what Mr. Bokhari had thrown at the scuffles in January, Palestinian rock throwing is a long-standing intimidation tactic that has killed around 14 Israelis in recent years.
Mr. Bokhari is originally a Pakistani asylum seeker who was handed a nine-month sentence for raiding a London electronics shop during the city’s 2011 riots.
He has previously written on Facebook: “Anyone who wants to [say] ‘Syed [is] just a charity worker now’ – I’m happy to prove to you fools that I ain’t no humanitarian… A big f*** you to the Met police, Special Branch, MI5, GCHQ, the whole of France, David Cameron and the Conservatives.”
London2Calais has been supported by the Green Party, as well as anti-Israel groups. They have hosted speakers from open borders groups funded by Hungarian-American billionaire George Soros, and European Union-funded groups such as Asylum Aid.
Mr. Bohari’s lawyer insisted: “He felt he was being targeted by the right wing groups involved. Since this incident he has withdrawn from all political activity.”
He was given a 12 month community order, including 150 hours unpaid work. He was also ordered to pay a £60 victim surcharge and £85 in costs.
The Chairman of the Bench, Ian White, commented: “We are not impressed to hear that missiles were thrown.”
