Public Meeting On Gaza Genocide With Chris Hedges and Richard Medhurst Blackburn 13 June 2024 June 16, 2024: - This was a fabulous meeting to a packed hall. There were moments in both Chris and Richard's speeches where you could have heard a pin drop and breath was held. https://rumble.com/v51rgsj-craig-murray-richard-medhurst-and-chris-hedges-talk-to-a-packed-hall-in-bla.html Craig Murray, Richard Medhurst and Chris Hedges talk to a packed hall in Blackburn about Palestine@CraigMurrayOrg @richimedhurst @ChrisLynnHedges https://t.co/PhWlaEKBL1— Gordon Dimmack (@GordonDimmack) June 15, 2024
Ten Facts About Craig Murray – Numbers 3, 4 & 5 June 15, 2024: - The election campaign is so frenetic that I haven't had time to put these out daily, even though they have been going out on other social media. So here we have ten facts about Craig Murray numbers three, four and five
Craig Murray’s Extraordinary Election Campaign June 13, 2024: - This is pretty candid with Crispin Flintoff of Not the Andrew Marr Show
Ten Facts About Craig Murray Part 2 June 12, 2024: - In the second instalment of 10 facts about Craig Murray, I talk about tuition fees.
Ten Facts About Craig Murray Part 1 June 11, 2024: - I have been told that many people in Blackburn know nothing of me, so I have made ten short videos giving ten facts about Craig Murray. I am posting one a day to be followed by ten equally short videos giving key policies for the future. So here is number one: Our campaign HQ is looking rather smart
Our Current Campaign Leaflet June 9, 2024: - This is what we are currently putting through doors. In 50 years of political campaigning I have never before known a leaflet which in itself changes people's attitudes towards you immediately. This one really does, in the most positive way possible. Do come and help me campaign. It is enjoyable to be on the side of good and seeking to defy the two big pro-Genocide parties. Floor space is available if you need it. Contact [email protected]
Campaign Speech on Gaza June 7, 2024: - I am very busy on the stump in Blackburn. I hope you enjoy this one.
George Galloway and Me: Stop the Genocide May 29, 2024: - Now updated with Campaign Launch Video below. In December 1980 I stood alongside George Galloway in Caird Square as the flag of Palestine was hoisted above Dundee City Chambers to mark the twinning of Dundee with Nablus in the West Bank. I was 22 years old. George had led the campaign for the twinning, against much opposition. In those days I worked alongside George to support the striking miners, in support of striking workers at Timex and NCR as Thatcherism ripped through the city, in the Anti-Nazi League and in other causes. George and I never had the same politics.…
Genocide in Rafah and the ICJ May 27, 2024: - It is difficult to imagine a more depraved, brutal and cowardly act than bombing refugee families in their tents, but I think we now all understand there is no moral depth which the terrorist entity that is Israel will not plumb. I think you know I have been regularly crying hot tears over the slaughter of innocents and the complicity of the western states. I hope that you will understand it is not from indifference to the unspeakable suffering, that I respond with a disquisition on grammar. There was an extraordinary unanimity across the entire mainstream media in giving the…
Craig Murray Blackburn Election Fund May 23, 2024: - This is it. The election is called and I am standing in Blackburn to offer voters there a viable alternative to the Keir Starmer Genocide Party. I cannot do it without your financial support and practical campaigning help. Any individual donations over £50 in value will require to be declared to the Returning Officer together with your full name and address and you must be on the UK Electoral Register at the time the donation is made (we are required by law to verify this). No overseas donations over £50 can be accepted unless you are currently on the UK…
The Turning of the Tide May 22, 2024: - In the normal run of things, if a very senior judge instructs you to give an assurance to their Court, it would probably not be wise to avoid giving the assurance, to devote a huge amount of text to trying to obscure the fact you have not given the assurance, and then to lecture the judge on why they were wrong to ask for the assurance in the first place. Most lawyers would probably advise against that course of conduct. But this did not deter the fearless James Lewis KC, back to lead for the United States prosecution against Julian…
The Drive for War May 18, 2024: - The collective shrug with which the Western media and political class noted the attempted assassination of Slovakian Prime Minister Robert Fico has been telling. Can you imagine the outrage and emotion that would have been expressed by Western powers if not Fico but a pro-Ukraine, anti-Russian leader within the EU had been attacked? The new orders for weapons that would have been presented to the arms manufacturers, the troops that would have been deployed, the sabres that would have been rattled? Instead we have the media telling us that Fico opposed sending arms to Ukraine and opposed threatening Russia. We…
Shameless May 13, 2024: - Incredibly the Israeli genocide in Gaza is now reaching new heights of violence. Casualty figures are not coming in, as the attacks are so bad that bodies cannot be recovered, medics cannot travel and there are almost no medical facilities operational now anyway. We now see that the Western injunctions not to attack Rafah were a smokescreen of lies to mask complicity. The final pocket of Gaza is being ruthlessly ethnically cleansed and its infrastructure will be destroyed like all the rest. It is striking that this is accompanied by an absolutely shameless doubling down of support for Israel by…
The Ignorance of Islamophobia May 9, 2024: - The deluge of Islamophobia on social media unleashed by supporters of the Gaza genocide has been profoundly shocking. It is one reason I am very sorry that Humza Yousaf was forced out as First Minister of Scotland, as he was a particular target and his ousting will have encouraged the bigots. On Twitter and Facebook I frequently receive comments suggesting that I should go and live in an Islamic country (from people evidently unaware that I have previously), or that I should meet Hamas or the Taliban (from people again unaware that I have previously) who would behead me, or…
Starmer Smashed in Blackburn May 6, 2024: - The leadership of genocide enthusiast Keir Starmer - who is still supporting arms sales to Israel and the "Israeli right to self-defence", who still refuses to acknowledge one single Israeli war crime - cost the Labour Party dear in Blackburn in the local elections. The result means I am very likely to win the parliamentary seat. The Blackburn Independent Councillors, who resigned from Labour over Gaza and invited me to stand as their parliamentary candidate, were re-elected and took new seats. They did not gain control of the council only because this was an election for just one third of…
The Curious Case of the Freedom Flotilla April 28, 2024: - The departure of the spectacular "Freedom Flotilla" to Gaza carrying 5,500 tonnes of aid has been postponed (again), because the flag state of the major vessels, Guinea Bissau, has withdrawn their registration. The key question is why the organisers were proceeding with such an unreliable flag state in the first place? In the 2010 Freedom Flotilla, the vessel Mavi Marmara was boarded by Israeli troops and ten aid workers were executed in cold blood. Just days before sailing, the Mavi Marmara had changed its flag from Turkey to the Comoros Islands. On a vessel at sea outside the twelve mile…
Worse Than You Can Imagine April 26, 2024: - Governments cannot take big decisions extremely quickly except in the most extreme of circumstances. There are mechanisms in all states that consider policy decisions, weigh them up, involve the various departments of the state whose activities are affected by that decision, and arrive at a conclusion, though not necessarily a good one. The decision to stop aid funding to UNRWA was not taken by numerous Western states in a single day. In the UK, several different government ministries had to coordinate. Even within only a single ministry, the FCDO, views would have to be coordinated through written submissions and interdepartmental…
The Farce of Diplomatic Assurances April 17, 2024: - The United States has now, on the face of it, produced the Diplomatic Note giving the two assurances required by the High Court to allow the extradition of Julian Assange to proceed. The assurance that Julian Assange will be allowed to rely on the First Amendment in his defence is a blatantly weak piece of sophistry. You can read my analysis on the High Court judgment of Assange's right to an appeal here. Let me dispense with the assurance against the death penalty. I am sure it will be accepted by the court. The USA does not need to execute…
I Stand in Blackburn April 16, 2024: - I shall be standing for election to Parliament as the member for Blackburn. This unexpected turn of events requires an honest declaration. 1) I am standing because of the Genocide in Gaza. 2) I am standing because of the appalling pro-Genocide stance of the Labour Party and Keir Starmer's continued support of arms exports to Israel. 3) I am standing because the Blackburn Independent Councillors and the Workers' Party invited me to. The political class, including both the Labour and Tory parties, has continued to offer wholehearted support for Israel. The Tories are a lost cause, irrelevant in Blackburn and…
Free at Last April 15, 2024: - I have today the permission of the surgeon to use my right hand for typing for the first time in over three weeks, provided I am careful not to extend the arm. On Saturday I put my arm in a sleeve and managed to remove my sling while making a speech in Blackburn, which I hope to bring you shortly (it was filmed by Consortium News but there is a job to do on sound synchronisation). The ligaments in my shoulder need another three weeks to heal and may require an operation, but my spirits are lifted enormously by being…
