A request for help in legal campaign: Stop Online Attacks Against Pro-Palestinian Journalists

Loyal readers:

Since September of last year I have been involved in a legal case in the UK against an anonymous Twitter account for defamation. Having suffered years of abuse from Zionist Twitter trolls, I decided it was time to take a stand and call their bluff after having been smeared as an “anti-Semite” – a completely false accusation that I categorically deny and deeply resent.  I am now on the cusp of exposing the account operator’s identity, which would mean I could then move forward with legal action seeking damages for reputational harm.

At this point, I have exhausted my own resources and so have set up a crowdfunding campaign to raise money for my legal costs. Please consider contributing if you can. Instructions for how to do so can be found here at CrowdJustice:

This case is just one of many against a network of anonymous Twitter accounts that go about smearing whoever dares to hold the Zionist state to account for its apartheid policies and crimes against humanity in occupied Palestine. Others who have been targeted by these trolls have lost their jobs, faced ongoing harassment, and, in one particular sad case, even committed suicide following a Twitter pile-on based on false allegations of antisemitism. I am pursuing this case as much on their behalf as on my own.

This case could serve as an important bellweather for the wider Palestinian solidarity movement. Any help you can provide would help me and my legal team land a body blow to the Zionist propaganda machine and set a powerful precedent for future legal proceedings relating to the Israel lobby’s ongoing smear campaign against pro-Palestinian journalists and activists.

In solidarity,

Peter

Appearance on By Any Means Necessary at Radio Sputnik

This morning, I appeared on the Washington DC-based radio show By Any Means Necessary to discuss the article. Listen to the interview here (skip forward about nine and half minutes to get straight to part when I appear).

Haiti’s president just got assassinated and the media are already calling for US intervention

The assassination of Haiti’s president has been dominating international headlines for several days now. Reports have been trying to make sense of this latest development in an already highly complex situation on the ground. Much column space, for example, has been devoted to speculation over the identity of the assassins and their potential motives.

But to focus on this would be to miss a much wider point. Haiti has a long history of suffering under imperial domination. And this latest development may well serve as the next pretext for Western intervention. Already, one of the US’s major corporate-owned media outlets has argued in favour of “international intervention”. And that’s an early indication that the impoverished nation may well be in store for the next round of foreign interference and all of its attendant pathologies.
