How a revolutionary group of activists led by two veteran Marxists are waging campaign to stop foreign criminals being deported from Britain
- Movement for Justice By Any Means Necessary has been called a Trotskyist cult
- It uses social media to oppose flights returning criminals including murderers
- The group is led by two long-standing Marxists who were convicted for assault
A revolutionary group of activists led by two long-standing Marxists is waging the campaign to halt deportations of foreign criminals.
The Movement for Justice By Any Means Necessary has used social media to mobilise opposition to the flights returning criminals including murderers, rapists and drug dealers. The group is working to halt three more deportation flights to European countries this week.
The group is led by Tony Gard, 79, and Karen Doyle, 46, long-standing Marxists who have been involved in far-Left political activity for decades, according to The Times.
In 1996, Mr Gard, a former primary school teacher, and Ms Doyle were convicted of assault after paint was poured over Lord Mawhinney, then Tory party chairman.

The pair are veteran campaigners from the Revolutionary Internationalist League (RIL), the British section of an organisation called the International Trotskyist Committee for the Political Regeneration of the Fourth International.

In 2017, a former member of the group said it was a ‘deceptive political project of a cultish Trotskyist group’.
The migrant from Europe wrote: ‘RIL instils a sense of never-ending high, nearly catastrophic urgency into the dictated tasks, continuously pushing people to their limits, using guilt for coercion, and abusing emotional empathy to begin their brainwashing programme.’
The group is not linked to immigration charity Detention Action, which co-ordinated last week’s celebrity-backed letter opposing the flights to Jamaica.
This charity was set up by Cambridge- educated lawyer Bella Sankey, who stood unsuccessfully as a Labour parliamentary candidate in 2019.
