The Guardian report mentions one young woman. “Aima, 18, who did not wish to give her last name, was one of the organisers of a protest in London on Sunday. She said: ‘I started the #LDNBLM hashtag and it blew off. I didn’t expect that to happen. What inspired me was how much pain I’ve suffered while in the UK. I moved here from Nigeria when I was 10 and as soon as I came here I experienced a lot of discrimination from the police and from people around me. People need to understand in the UK, we’re suffering too.’”
The Murdoch Sun also name-checked her in their report, and mentioned a colleague. “Aima, 18, and Tash, 21, helped coordinate Sunday's protest in London as demonstrators holding placards made their way over the River Thames and past the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye … In an interview on the BBC World Service, she accused the Metropolitan Police of being ‘institutionally racist’”. The piece also mentions Twitter.
Big Brother of Northcliffe House: always watching, always doxxing
So it was that Mail Online (no link provided, for obvious reasons) howled “'The police will kill me before corona kills me': Two young women organisers of the London Black Lives Matter protest make incredible claim that they 'risk their lives on a daily basis' living in 'so racist' UK”. And then comes the doxxing - by posting photos of them.
“Two 18-year-olds Aima (left) and Tash (right) have been revealed as organising the London protests over the killing of George Floyd which sparked violence on the capital's streets. They've posted a series of hard hitting social media messages slamming Britain for being a 'racist country' and claiming that 'police brutality' will kill black people before coronavirus does”. Way to endanger them both for a few clicks.
It gets worse: both their Twitter feeds are identified. Then the Mail has the brass neck to add “Tash, a student from London, told MailOnline that neither her nor Aima are willing to divulge any personal details about themselves”. So the Mail did it for them.
The only surprise is that the Mail didn’t also post a photo of where they lived. After all, they’ve done that to so many of their targets in the past. Totally out of order.
These far-right rags will one day face a reckoning that is long overdue.
Yeah, right . .. ...
Can't come soon enough .
