First – an apology. This Writer misconstrued a press release about the new documentary Reaching over the noise – Is Labour really Anti-Semitic?
I mistakenly believed the documentary was all but finished and people were being invited to a screening, at which more filming would take place.
In fact, people were being invited to come and take part in the documentary, offering their own views on the so-called Labour anti-Semitism crisis.
Next – som facts: Indy Media Productions, the crew behind the film, has been making it in response to the BBC Panorama documentary Is Labour Antisemitic? that was riddled with falsehoods and gave an inaccurate impression of the situation in the Labour Party
Anyone with left-wing political loyalties is welcome to attend the event at the Britons Protection in Manchester.
The meeting will be captured on film and used in the final scene of the documentary (and also in the trailer).
Tickets are available from this site. The 50p price is only so organisers can gauge the numbers attending.
“There is an election taking place and the antisemitism narrative is being used against us,” said a spokesperson for the production company.
“It is vital that during this election, as Labour supporters and Labour members, we hit these allegations head on and state exactly where we stand.
“We are not racists. We are not anti-Semites. We are just people who care deeply about injustice, equality, poverty and homelessness.
“If we don’t speak out and state exactly what we stand for, others will do it for us and what they say will not be the truth.
“We are hoping to capture footage of as many speakers as possible but we may also ask questions of some that attend to get their opinions on the allegations of institutional anti-Semitism made against Labour.
“This is your opportunity to have your voice. It is time for those on the left to speak out and not be silent. There is a lot at stake at this election and a lot to lose.”
Finally – the unpleasantness: Almost immediately after my original article went up, managers of the original venue were subjected to abuse from the kind of bigots responsible for the false “anti-Semitism” narrative.
Here’s an example of the kind of message they received (now edited to stop Facebook shocking readers when I try to share it):
Hard to believe these people are claiming the moral high ground, isn’t it?
They never succeed in stopping the facts from getting out; they just show themselves up for what they are.
