Has crowdfunder capitulated to pressure?
The SKWAWKBOX reported this evening that the Labour right was trying to force crowdfunding platform GoFundMe to remove a fundraiser started by a Jeremy Corbyn supporter from its pages. Emails like the one below have been received tonight by some donors, confirming a refund that had not been requested:
If GoFundMe capitulates to the anti-Corbyn pressure, another platform or method will be found – and the right’s unprincipled attempts to crush Corbyn and the movement are likely only to drive the fund even higher than the more than £300,000 it had already reached.
However, the page currently remains online and has reached £304,000 as of moments ago.
