On Tuesday, when the controversial Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Act came into force and banned acts which cause “serious annoyance” to members of the public, Mr Bray saw his speakers removed by Metropolitan Police officers.
He went on to tell the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire that the UK is “heading down a path of fascism”, and was heard calling police officers “fascist mouthpieces” when they seized his equipment.
According to Mr Bray, he has been “summonsed” with the case going to court, and said he “may need some legal help”.
Fortunately for him, the crowdfunder listed on his Twitter profile has seen a surge in support, with the protester tellingThe Telegraph’s Christopher Hope he “raised £80,000 overnight” on Wednesday.
The fundraiser, which was launched back in July 2020, now stands at over £203,500, with donations coming in every couple of seconds.
