Media Workers against War

Even before the controversy of the DEC emergency aid broadcast, there was widespread criticism of the reporting of Israel's onslaught on Gaza. Media Workers Against the War is hosting another of its very impressive public meetings, titled
GAZA - FAILED BY THE MEDIA, in London on Monday 2 February.

The speakers include Gerald Kaufman MP, whose blistering attack on Israel's barbarity in the House of Commons was widely reported (see video here: http://tinyurl.com/bz32ao)

Other speakers include Seumas Milne from The Guardian and Richard Horton, editor of The Lancet.
