SOCIALIST historian Dr Louise Raw was temporarily suspended from Twitter today after a campaign of vexatious complaints made against her to the social media platform.
After her account was restored, she said that there had been “malicious mass reporting” against her by “fascists, trolls and people who pretend I’m anti-semitic.”
She added: “My work today has been researching the life of fantastic and undersung Jewish socialist hero, Sara Wesker, with the help of her wonderful great-nephew.”
Kerry-Anne Mendoza, editor of the Canary website, said that many left-wing activists and academics, including Dr Raw and Professor Des Freedman of Goldsmiths, had been suspended.
She tweeted: “Two opponents of fascism and media bias targeted by the witch hunt. This is censorship. Twitter, bring them back and close down this method of harassment. #StopTheLeftPurge.”
University of Bristol academic Jeffrey Bowers had his Twitter account reinstated today. It had been suspended after he had supported his colleague David Miller, who had called for an end to zionism.
Prof Bowers wrote on Twitter that Professor Miller had been falsely accused of anti-semitism. The social platform claimed that Prof Bowers’s account had been suspended “in error.”
