I AM still reeling at the news of this deplatforming that I tweeted earlier this morning.
Liz Philips, the organiser of the Great Resist Conference due to be held on Saturday, alerted me last night that the Holiday Inn in Liverpool had cancelled the booking with less than three days to go. The management said hosting the conference would might make them ‘appear to take sides on political matters’.
Well it looks very much as if they have taken sides with an activist group that has been campaigning against the Conference, an outfit called Liverpool Against Hate with its 524 followers.
Here is their pinned tweet smearing the conference and its participants.
Here is their ‘thank you’ tweet to the activists they called on to harass the hotel:
I am still waiting for my call back from the Holiday Inn manager to explain why he fell for these bullying tactics by a group of activists.
