Abstract

513485.jpg.indyscaled.jpg

On Saturday 2nd November 2013 a fundraising benefit gig for the family of imprisoned whistle blower Chelsea Manning, organised by WISE Up Action, 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 Libcom.org and on a Liverpool SolFed members blog, was that one of the organisers, Ciaron O’Reilly was a "vile misogynist and transphobic shitbag". These unsubstantiated and refuted allegations were earlier made at the London Anarchist bookfair in October 2013 where Ciaron O’Reilly was physically and verbally assulted for his support of Julian Assange of WikiLeaks.
