The Labour Party have suspended Jewish activist, Tony Greenstein, over accusations of anti-Semitism without allowing him to see the evidence against him. However, the accusations were leaked to the Daily Telegraph & The Times!!! Tony will tell us his story & explore this statement: “It is perfectly justifiable and legal to question the right of Israel to exist as it is constituted as a Jewish state. It is not anti-Semitic to do so.”
Tony Greenstein is a co-founder of Palestine Solidarity Campaign in Britain, a suspended member of the Labour Party and a socialist activist. He is author of the book ‘Fighting Fascism in Brighton and on the South Coast’ and has been an anti-fascist activist since the 1970’s.
