No Kangaroo Court at the Law Society!

The "Russell Tribunal" is a synonym for yet another Israel Hatefest from the Red/Green Alliance of As-A-Jews, Communists and Islamists.

Just look at the people involved: Dugard, Kasrils, Mansfield, McKinney, Lanning Hilary ...

Unbelievably the Law Society has agreed to host this Kangaroo Court (20-22 November). I can only charitably assume they have no idea of the nature of the event.

Please protest to the Law Society, most especially if you are a lawyer - your subscription finances this building. Hopefully they will see the error of their ways.

JH,
Very depressing. But as I have said, the British establishment is backing Jihad. Why should The Law Society be any different?

Btw, I have met John Dugard's daughter (Jackie Dugard) She is also a leftist anti-zionist. So perhaps it is genetic?

Zair,
did you acquire your anti-zionism genetically?

No Anthony I acquired my sense of injustice from an early age, who I go it from I'm not sure, but I'm glad I did.

It is not quite accurate to say that the Law Society is hosting the Russell Tribunal, though I can understand why it might look that way at first glance.

The Law Society is not hosting an event involving the Russell Tribunal. The Law Society is not endorsing the Russell Tribunal, nor is it spending one penny of its members’ money on the Russell Tribunal. This post would suggest otherwise and it is disappointing that the author did not check the facts with us.

The Society's building is used for a number of events at weekends, including weddings and even music awards, but it would be wrong to describe those events as being "hosted" by the Law Society. The rooms at the Society's offices are simply hired out to the organisers of such events.

At a time when the Law Society is closed over a weekend our letting agents have leased some of our rooms to be used by the Russell Tribunal for a private event that they are holding. The contents of the meetings and discussions to be held by the Russell Tribunal have nothing whatsoever to do with the Society.

It is highly problematic to refuse an event that is lawful even if some may disagree with the views to be expressed.

SteveR,

Would The Law Society lease its rooms to The BNP?

SteveR.

Would The Law Society also lease its rooms to a lawful EDL convention?

Aha I see the Law Society is using the defence of 'mane lavo'.

Not anywhere near good enough, SteveR

Would you let the building to the Ku Klux Klan? BNP? Muslim Brotherhood? Hizbut Tahrir?

"It is highly problematic to refuse an event that is lawful"

Nonsense. You can refuse any event you like. Ask a lawyer.

No they are using the Ventosa Veeri, Restabit defence. Perfectly acceptable

tsam,

Would you oppose the Law Society leasing the building for a BNP meeting?
