Free speech questions still need answering

29 November, 2018

• FURTHER to the matter of secrecy around the presence of Camden Council’s Prevent officers at a meeting on Palestine organised by the Revolutionary Communist Group (Protect free and radical speech, November 22) we are still awaiting a full answer to the question of why they were there and what is in their report.

We are hoping for the support of Cllr Georgie Robertson of King’s Cross ward and others in the event that we do not get a satisfactory response from the borough solicitor about why the council sent the officers and why the council will not respond to our Freedom of Information request.

We need to stand together and stand firm on the right to criticise the state of Israel and refuse the gagging clause in the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of anti-Semitism.
