IS THIS THE WAY THINGS ARE GOING?
Waterstones shuts down book launch exposing the antisemitism witch hunt against the left
A torrent of “threats” and ‘abuse’, allegedly levied against Waterstones in Brighton, resulted in the cancellation of a book launch on antisemitism and the Labour Party. Pluto Press and Waterstones announced that they were “delighted to host an event to mark the release of Bad News for Labour: Antisemitism, the Party and Public Belief” on 23 September. But the bookstore then updated its website to say: “Due to reasons out of our control we have had to cancel tonight’s event”. Organisers told The Canary this was down to a “harassment” campaign.
