In his tweet, the Human rights activist Peter Tatchell took aim at the children of Russian migrants in the UK. He wrote in his post that UK must “expel” the children from the British schools due to the perceived crimes of the Russian state.
“Under #Putin: state assets stolen, protesters jailed, opposition politicians & critical journalists assassinated, war crimes in Syria. Time to implement #Magnitsky Act & seize UK assets of Putin regime officials & families, impose visa bans, expel their children from UK schools,” Peter Tatchell said in his Tweet.

His tweet was followed by a large number of opposite posts in Twitter, Face book, Instagram, and other social Media, in which people criticized him. In his tweet he attacked President Vladimir Putin’s governance. He also called for the implementation of the Magnitsky Clause into UK legislation and further visa bans.
As a Human Rights Activist surely you realise that expelling children from schools based on their nationality is racism?

Under Putin “state assets stolen, protesters jailed, opposition politicians & critical journalists assassinated, war crimes in Syria,” said Peter Tatchell. Although the recent poisoning of the ex-Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury, caused a new wave of anti-Russia sentiment in UK, Tatchell’s tweet faced a huge amount of oppositions.

Wow, Do you really believe in targeting children? Peter I'm surprised that you think it's acceptable to punish children for who their parents are.

“I’m surprised that you think it’s acceptable to punish children for who their parents are,” said one of the social media users, blaming Tatchell for targeting innocent children. In his tweet, Tatchell has also asserted that Russia has committed war crimes in Syria, which was also criticized by people too.
You're talking about a Russia after collapse of the USSR. This Russia no longer exists which show your views to be definitively stuck in the past. Any Russian oligarchs still here in UK, fled from Russia with their ill-gotten gains & are helping to prop up a Tory government!

Very sad to see you lost in the hysterical jingoism infecting the UK currently Peter. The same tired accusations without evidence. Havn't people in Britain realized the mechanisms used to achieve regime change yet? How many times will the jingoistic buttons work? Lies for War.

You have become a mouthpiece for the imperialist west, repeating propagandist narratives without question.
Easy work though eh?
