If You Value Free Speech, Help Craig Murray

I wish to draw everyone's attention to the plight of Craig Murray. The former diplomat turned human rights activist and author of Murder in Samarkand is currently being sued for libel by the associate editor of the Daily Fail Online, Jake Wallis Simons, a journalist who claims to have 'exposed' Labour's anti-Semitism.

You can read the details (or rather as much as he can currently say) on Craig's blog here - which is also where you can pledge via paypal, visa, direct debit, maestro or mastercard a donation to a fighting fund which will allow him to defend his case from 7th November. Please, please, please give Craig's blog a read and do as I did - give what you can. I can only repeat what the man himself has said;

"If you have ever enjoyed this blog - join the fight. If you dislike this blog but support freedom of speech - join the fight. If you support the right to defend Palestine without being labelled anti-Semitic - join the fight. If you despised the anti-Corbyn media campaign - join the fight. If the Daily Mail sickens you - join the fight"
