Another bomb threat has been made to a pro-Palestine event in Liverpool. A forum on Labour and antisemitism organised by Victory to the Intifada has received the anonymous threat – but organisers have decided, in view of the hoax threat made last night that ended a showing of a film about expelled activist Jackie Walker, to press ahead with the event at the Caledonia pub in Liverpool, where Labour’s conference ended this afternoon.
The threat marks another chapter in a series of disruptions targeting pro-Palestine events. Last night’s hoax threat was misportrayed by the mainstream media as being ‘anti-Jewish’, when in fact the likely intent was to prevent discussion of the Israel-Palestine issue from a left, pro-Palestine perspective.
It is to be hoped that the organisers’ call turns out to be the right one. Police have been informed and a car is on standby outside the venue.
