My EI Podcast co-host Nora Barrows-Friedman and I appeared on Justin Podur’s podcast talking about Canadian MP Miki Ashton and how she’s been smeared for hosting a live conversation with former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

How the Israel lobby smear campaign against Jeremy Corbyn spread to Canada — Asa Winstanley and Nora Barrows-Friedman on Justin Podur’s podcast
Thanks to Hastings and Rye Palestine Solidarity Campaign for inviting me to speak at this event about media censorship on Palestine.
To illustrate perfectly the need to raise awareness of this issue, a small article about the upcoming event was deleted from the website of a local press outlet!
Miko Peled hosts a roundtable discussion with Chris Williamson (Former Labour Party MP), Asa Winstanley (Journalist), and Tony Greenstein (Activist, Author) who will analyze the events and forces that led to Corbyn’s fall at the hands of pro-Israels special interest groups. Chris Williamson, Asa Winstanley, and Tony Greenstein all faced pressure and/or oustings from their respective roles within the UK Labour Party over similar smears of “antisemitism”. In this online event, we will hear from each of these esteemed UK journalists, politicians and activists who have been directly affected by and witnessed this vast smear campaign and political suppression on the ground level.
I took part in this debate hosted by Miko Peled.

I was invited back on Sean Blackmon and Eugene Puryear’s excellent radio show in the US to talk about Panorama’s controversial programme “Is Labour Anti-Semitic”.

This is the video of a talk that Brighton Palestine Solidarity Campaign invited me to give at their annual AGM in June.
In it I talk about: the role of independent media within the Palestine solidarity movement, specifically The Electronic Intifada; and about Israel’s Ministry of Strategic Affairs and its covert war against BDS, the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement.
In it I talk about the modern day legacy of the Nakba, the Israeli ethnic cleansing of 750,000 Palestinians in 1948; BDS, the boycott divestment and sanctions movement against Israeli apartheid; and Israel’s current war against Palestine solidarity.
Thanks to the Palestine Museum for inviting me to take part.
