[color=rgba(17, 17, 17, 0.6)]A documentary promoted by Jewish Voice for Labour exposes the campaign to discredit the Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership as one based on disinformation, fake news and dirty tricks.
WitchHunt, by Edinburgh-based filmmaker Jon Pullman, combines extensive archive material with authoritative new interviews, featuring experts in media, Jewish, black and labour history, racism and the politics of the Middle East.
Pullman says: “I’ve set out to explore the connections between the attacks on Labour, the unfolding tragedy of Palestine and the wider struggle against race-based oppression.”
The film examines the use of antisemitism allegations to silence critics of Israel’s human rights violations, such as black Jewish activist Jackie Walker, a former vice-chair of Momentum. She continues to be publicly abused by anti-Corbyn Labour MPs, even in the run-up to her hearing before the National Constitutional Committee scheduled for March 26, 2019.
This is the film that Labour MP Chris Williamson was prevented from screening to MP's in Houses of Parliament. The PM has criticised him, and he has since been suspended from the party for his comments defending the party from allegations of anti-semitism.
The Israeli lobby and it's supporters in the UK parliament have managed to remove a real socialist and supporter of Palestinian rights from Westminster ****
