Black anti-racism activist is on Trial for Antiracism

Channel 4 News – Cyril Chilson and Tony Greenstein interviewed
A lively and well attended lobby
To George Osborne and the Tory press we were a ‘mob’

If there was any justice in the Labour Party the
person facing a two day disciplinary hearing would not be Marc Wadsworth but
Ruth Smeeth.  The filmed evidence of her departure in ‘tears’ (can
you see them?) from the Chakrabarti Report press conference demonstrates
without a shadow of a doubt that there was nothing said that was at all
anti-Semitic.  Marc called out Smeeth’s relations with The Telegraph
and complained at the lack of Black voices at the press conference.

Yet Wes Streeting MP could claim today that 
I’m afraid it does say something about the culture that we’re up against that a
Jewish MP going to give evidence against someone who has abused her is greeted
by a protest outside’
.   Streeting is a good example
of the whole of the false anti-Semitism crewe.  He assumed that
Marc is guilty as charged, yet the whole purpose of a hearing – even before the
rigged jury of Maggi Cousins and the National Kangaroo Committee – is to
inquire into whether the allegations are proven or not.

The fact that Smeeth is Jewish is irrelevant. The
fact is that compared to Marc she is highly privileged.
Against the Witchhunt
 held a lobby of the hearing at Church House, Westminster
today  from 9.30 onwards.  About 20 MPs including the usual anti-Corbyn
suspects – Streeting, Frank Field, Margaret Hodge, Jesse Philips and Peter
 escorted Smeeth to the venue.  There they were met with
over 70 demonstrators.
It was no
doubt something of a surprise to see that Marc had so many
friends.  Streeting looked most unhappy.  What Streeting
didn’t appreciate is that Marc is an anti-racist of longstanding. Marc was
heavily involved in the Stephen Lawrence Defence Campaign and was interviewed
as part of the BBC 3 part documentary shown last week on the Stephen Lawrence
murder.  Smeeth on the other hand has had no involvement in
anti-racist work being a former employee of BICOM, the main propaganda arm for
Israel, the world’s only apartheid state, in Britain. 

Smeeth is a also former Israel lobby spin doctor who, after entering the
UK’s parliament in 2015, continued to be funded by two leading figures
from her former employer, BICOM – the Britain Israel Communications and
Research Centre.

register of financial interests
 for members of Parliament shows that
Smeeth continues to be funded by the Israel lobby.
Last year, as Asa Winstanley observed, she registered an in-kind donation worth more than
$7,000 from Trevor Chinn, a member of BICOM’s executive committee.

Israel lobbyist deletes anti-Semitic “conspiracy” claims

 The Daily Telegraph in 2011, Smeeth admitted to
being at a meeting with the US embassy but said: “I have no
recollection of saying what has been attributed to me. I would not consider
myself to be a source for the US government.”

gave evidence today at Marc’s hearing.  By all accounts she is not a
very good liar.  She claimed that she was wearing a Star of David
around her neck, though Marc would not have been able to see it, if it was
there, because of his own poor sight.

Jeremy Corbyn’s office in a typical act of cowardice contacted Marc to
ask that the demonstration outside the hearing be called
off.  Presumably they wanted Marc to walk in alone whilst the Right
mobilised.  Jeremy has known Marc for at least 20 years and knows
full well that he is not an anti-Semite.  It is shameful how Jeremy
has thrown Marc and others to the wolves in order to appease the Labour Right
not realizing that the target of the anti-Semitism campaign is not Jackie, Marc
or myself but Corbyn himself.
The original lies of Ruth Smeeth which she later deleted from her web site

This whole fake ‘anti-Semitism’ campaign has been manufactured over the
past few weeks with one purpose in mind – to damage Labour’s chances in the
local elections.  That was why Luciana Berger dug up a 6 year old
Facebook comment by Corbyn concerning a long erased
Mural.  Unfortunately some on the Left who should know better, like
Jon Lansman and Richard Seymour, have falled for the Rights decoy tactics as
these ex-leftists pronounce that there must be something in the bogus
anti-Semitism claims.

We are faced with an incremental campaign to get rid of Corbyn. It was
strange watching the Channel 4 footage above and seeing right-wing Tory,
Jonathan Arkush, of the Board of Deputies proclaiming that Labour should not
tolerate Ken Livingstone.  The same man who welcomed Trump and his
anti-Semitic entourage without any murmur or protest.

Our lobby lasted from 9.30-1.00.  It was lively and
good humoured and just after 1,00 Marc came out to meet a media
scrum.  Labour Against the Witchhunt is the only organisation to
consistently oppose a witch hunt whose principla aim is to remove Corbyn’s
