THAT GUARDIAN JOHN REES CORRECTION IN FULL

We may inadvertently given the impression yesterday that John Rees was a bigoted racist. We now realise – thanks for the call Lyndsay – that this is not true and was based on one unsupported assertion from a grudge bearing Chinese actress – with a large chip on her shoulder about slave labour. So that shouldn’t have counted. Ms.German has asked us – sorry told us – to include the following:

‘Great helmsman………internationalist…..tireless….self effacing….towering intellect…siege of Madrid…..cable street ..lollipop person(shurely shum mishtake)…………zzzzzzz………….

signed by Owen Jones and 38,000 academics ( full list available from Counterfire) Big Lenn, Emily Benn, Bill and Benn. No Chinese were counted in the making of this list.

      Yes, rumour has it that 38,000 ‘progressive’ academics will be marching on the Guardian’s HQ in Farringdon Road- and that it will be the MOST MASSIVE, THE BIGGEST, RECORD-BREAKING, PROTEST OF ACADEMICS IN THE HISTORY OF EVER!!!!

    The actual issue seems not very clear to me. But the good thing for anarchists is that, if the rest of the left ignores the Chinese community, then there are opportunities for anarchist and/or syndicalist forces instead. Maybe the IWW has been doing it? I don’t know. Can you people help?
