We republish below a short letter from Barry, we’re sure many feel as he does. Keep strong Barry!
As a life long Socialist and trade unionist, it is with relief and pride to read the statement you have produced defending the rights of women and Children and the rights for freedom of speech.
I have been profoundly depressed at many of the left groups who have allowed themselves to be captured by the vicious trends and methods used by the Transgender movement.
They have systematically vilified, threatened, cancelled, harassed, bullied anyone who stands for biological realities and have demonstrated their hatred via death, rape, torture threats and physical violence against the most prominent speakers.
This has no place in the genuine Socialist and trade union movement, its approach sits comfortably in the other end of the spectrum of politics.
So, thank you so much for speaking openly and confidently on these issues and I hope your interventions give hope and courage to tackle the growing threat that this ideology poses to women , children and the movement at large. In Comradeship and solidarity.
