Austrian hipster-right Identitarian leader Martin Sellner was detained and refused entry to Britain on Friday at Heathrow airport ahead of a planned speech at Speaker's Corner in Hyde Park, London.
Sellner, along with his partner, YouTube political commentator and author Brittany Pettibone, was refused entry into the UK according to the British branch of the Generation Identity movement.
In a press release, the group said that Sellner and Pettibone arrived in Britain at Luton airport at 1 pm and were told they were being detained because of the planned speech, with authorities claiming Sellner represented, "a far-right group and intend[s] to incite racial hatred."
The pair were then moved to Heathrow airport at 1 am where they were both placed in detention, along with other foreign nationals waiting to be deported.
