International Mediation Called in as latest Row Shakes Labour Against Witch-Hunt.

Group set up to protest Labour’s expulsion of members accused of antisemitism expels members for alleged antisemitism

Labour Against the Witchhunt is accused of pursuing ‘shameful witch hunt’.

The Newshounds of the Indy and their top team, based on exhaustive investigation of me and my mates’ Facebook Pages can reveal,

A campaign group that was set up to protest against the expulsion of Labour Party members for alleged antisemitism has expelled some of its own members who it says are antisemitic.

Gerry Downing, who was excluded from Labour Against the Witchhunt (LAW), has accused the group of conducting its own witch hunt against him.

He is now planning a protest at the same location as a LAW meeting on Saturday, in a bid to be readmitted to the group.

Setting up a Facebook page called “Reject Bogus Left Antisemitism”, Mr Downing accused LAW of wanting a “witch hunt [against] genuine anti-Zionists and revolutionary socialists”.

He claimed the group wanted to demonstrate to Labour’s General Secretary, Iain McNicol, “that they really will never cross the line from defence of the democratic rights of Palestinians to advocating revolutionary solutions to these situations”.

An international  appeal from Robbie Travers has called for mediation.
