Police officers and members of the public were injured at the demo where roads were blocked and missiles thrown.
Five people were arrested on the day of the protest which took place around Trafalgar Square.
Robinson, the former EDL leader, had been jailed for contempt of court after posting a live video to Facebook outside Leeds Crown Court, after he allegedly ignored reporting restrictions on a long-running case.
He has since been released on bail.

At the protest in June, demonstrators held Union Jack flags and placards calling for Robinson, 35, to be freed.
Detective Constable Jonny Wise, from the Met’s Public Order Investigations Team, said: “During this demonstration violent disorder broke out on the streets of Central London resulting in injuries to members of the public and numerous police officers.
“A post-incident investigation was launched, through which we have already identified a number of suspects as the result of a public appeal.
“We are incredibly grateful to the public for their help identifying individuals so far, and we are now issuing a further appeal for assistance in identifying the people in these images.

Robinson was sentenced to 13 months in prison earlier this year after broadcasting footage of trial defendants on social media. He claimed he was “reporting” on a grooming trial involving 28 Asian men.
But the 35-year-old was released after the Court of Appeal ruled there were technical flaws in the ruling of the judge who jailed him. He is now awaiting a retrial.
