John Gulliver’s report from the Labour fringe meeting was real, not fake, news

05 October, 2017

• PRAISE be for the New Journal, the only mainstream media outlet to report on a really big Labour conference story rather than false news! (Fringe meeting of the day, but was I the only reporter there?, September 28).

Some of us from Camden were in the huge Brighton ballroom last week, as it overflowed with 300 members excited to be in at the launch of the new Jewish Voice for Labour, with its compelling speakers and the big names then coming forward to pledge support.

We intend to continue our fight for free speech on Israel and Palestine here in our own borough with its rich heritage of human rights and solidarity groups.

Look out later this month for two important talks with Salma Karmi of Lawyers for Palestinian Human Rights, and Professor Mazin Qumsiyeh (‘Qumsiyeh: A Human rights Web’, qumsiyeh.org).

Camden has to live up to its long progressive tradition as an open forum for the voices of all oppressed people.
