On Saturday 2nd November 2013 a fundraising benefit gig for the family of imprisoned whistle blower Chelsea Manning at The Casa in Liverpool, a pub set up by sacked Liverpool Dockers, suffered multiple violent attacks by supporters of the Liverpool Solidarity Federation.

The justification for the physical and verbal attacks on peace activists and workers at The Casa, published in advance on was that one of the organisers, Ciaron O’Reilly was a "vile misogynist and transphobic shitbag". These unsubstantiated and refuted allegation was earlier made at the London Anarchist bookfair in October 2013 where Ciaron O’Reilly was physically attacked for his support of Julian Assange of WikiLeaks.
