No free speech

No Pasaran means no free speech

A conference in London advocating restrictions on free speech, attended by the Labour MP Diane Abbott, a very close ally of the Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn, heard threats made against political rivals, including pro-Brexit Tory MPs.

The conference was organised by a pro-Corbyn faction of the far-left which is holding an ‘anti-racism’ march and public rally later this month in London.

The shadow home secretary, Diane Abbott, backed Jeremy Corbyn’s ‘anti-racist’ credentials as a much hyped ‘anti-semitic’ row engulfed the party once again.

No Pasaran speakers, including Labour MP, Diane Abbott.

Other speakers included pro-Muslim activists and far-left candidates still outside the Labour party. There were also contingents from Germany, France and Spain.

The slogan ‘No Pasaran’ is the Spanish version of an old French military motto; “They shall not pass!” It was made popular among the far-left by a pro-Stalin communist politician during the Spanish Civil War.

Free Speech for some, but not for others!

‘Stand Up To Racism’ is a front group of the trotskyite communist Socialist Workers’ Party, but is backed by the pro-Corbyn faction of the Labour Party, hence Diane Abbott’s attendance. The pro-Blair right-wing of the Labour Party tends to support Hope not Hate, which is currently embroiled in a row over its collaboration with the BBC amid a postponed hatchet job on the former English Defence League leader ‘Tommy Robinson’.

Both of them are distinct from the street-based Antifa cadres though all of them are vehemently opposed to free speech on issues concerning militant Islam, mass immigration and multiculturalism.
