When I first saw the story of Emma West, the young mother of two who spoke her mind against third-world immigration in a British tram, my heart ached for her. Yet my comment on the American Renaissance article was one of criticism for her vulgar language and grudging support for her sentiments.
After some reflection, I have changed my mind and I regret having taking that stance. Other commenters had pointed out that such language is normal for working class Londoners, and that the Left is wont to use language at least as vulgar. Besides, somebody has to publicly speak their mind and break the ice of silence over the invasion of Britain.
Whatever flaws there may have been in West’s delivery of her message, at this point she deserves the unflagging support of all of us. A comment, by “Free Ema West” on Mangan’s blog, reads:
Britain First (britainfirst.org) seems to be the main spot for organized support for Emma West. You can send messages of support to her and messages of protest to the authorities through their site.
For those that would like send support directly to her, see this post:
For your convenience, here is her direct contact information:

My letter of support, along with a check, is already on its way. Along with whatever legal expenses she will incur, she will also probably have to move. She will need money, so I urge all of you to send her some money according to your ability. If not, at least send her a Christmas card. Don’t forget that, if you’re sending it from outside Britain, the postal rates are higher – so don’t just affix a stamp and drop it in the mail. Make sure there is enough postage. Also, given the lack of freedom of speech in Britain, it might be a good idea to use only general words of encouragement; don’t rant about immigration or directly support what she did to get locked up. The authorities might confiscate the letter and she would never see it. If somebody knows otherwise, please correct me on this.
