Labour Campaign for Free Speech Conference – Saturday February 13th 2 p.m. – It’s time to stand up and be counted
As the Board of Deputies and Tory Students at Oxford University Try to Stop Ken Loach Speaking the Time to Defend Free Speech is Now
I cannot remember a time when free speech has been under attack such as it is today. In the name of ‘anti-Semitism’ there was an attempt last week by snotty Tory bigots at St. Peter’s College, Oxford to silence the world famous film producer Ken Loach.
How did these juvenile racists get to ‘prove’ that Loach, a man who has fought against injustice all his life, was an ‘anti-Semite’? Simple. They used the device of cut and paste in order to quote him out of context whilst ignoring his massive contribution to the fight against racism, imperialism and the oppression of ordinary working class people.
Of course these students are training to be our ruling class and they seek to cover themselves in the mantle of ‘anti-racism’ trading on the memory of the Jews who died in the holocaust. Their only purpose being to defend Israel, Zionism’s bastard state which vaccinates only Jews leaving out 5 million Palestinians.
You might think that if the students of St Peters were seriously interested in racism they might turn their attention to the statue of Cecil Rhodes outside Oriel College. Rhodes was a man who hunted Africans on horseback as if they were game.
But of course Oxford’s upper class brats aren’t interested in opposing racism but defending it and who have they chosen to vilify and ban but one of the few filmmakers who has devoted his life to standing up against oppression. Loach’s back catalogue is testimony to his fight for the liberation of humanity and against the privilege that these Oxford students represent. Films like Kes, I Daniel Blake, The Wind that Shook the Barley and Land and Freedom. It says something about the British education system that it can produce a cluster of well-bred philistines.
Unfortunately those that we might expect to stand up and be counted like Liberty (formerly National Council for Civil Liberties) are also silent. Meanwhile the IHRA, a tool for conflating anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism is the choice of every racist and anti-Semite world-wide, from Trump to Orban.
Tomorrow the newly formed (Labour) Campaign for Free Speech will be holding its founding conference. In the Labour Party free speech has been under attack by its failing leader Sir Keir Starmer and his glove puppet David Evans. There have been suspensions and expulsions all round, of Jews especially, all in the name of fighting ‘anti-Semitism’! Yet the same Starmer is incapable of saying anything about a state which bars Arabs from 93% of the land.
Only this week the Guardian, which was as devoted to undermining Jeremy Corbyn as the Daily Mail, sacked its columnist Nathan Robinson for having tweeted his opposition to US aid to Israel.
We have a host of interesting speakers tomorrow including Norman Finkelstein, author of Holocaust Industry, whose parents were both survivors of concentration camps. Ronnie Kasrills, the Jewish Commander of the ANC’s military wing, Umkonte we-Sizwe, is also speaking as is Jackie Walker – the Black Jewish former Vice-Chair of Momentum whom Jon Lansman stabbed in the back. Chris Williamson, the former MP for Derby North who was hounded out of the Labour Party and the only MP to stand up against the witchhunt will be speaking as will Graham Bash of Jewish Voices for Labour.
Also speaking will be Sami Ramadani from Stop the War Coalition, Jamie Stern-Weiner an expert on the IHRA and Professor David Miller of the University of Bristol who has also been targeted by Zionist witchhunters who are demanding that he be sacked for holding what to them are unacceptable views.
The final speaker will be Esther Giles, suspended Secretary of Bristol North-West who was removed by Save Our Socialists and Momentum from a rally last Sunday at the behest of Liverpool’s Lord Mayor Anna Rothery, for not bowing to political correctness over trans rights.
You can register here. For further information go to the Labour Against the Witchhunt page. As the electorate are turning their back on Starmer’s Labour now is the time to stand up to the apostles of Apartheid Israel. Come and join us.
As George Orwell said, ‘If liberty means anything at all it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.’ Today the ruling class and their apprentices at Oxford University are desperate to prevent you hearing the truth about Israel and what the Zionist movement does and has done, not least during the holocaust.
Come and join us!
