The GPU Festival

The Global Peace and Unity Festival.

We recently published an article concerning the forthcoming Global Peace and Unity Conference which stated that a number of MPs and Peers were speaking at the Conference. We did not check with the named persons before publishing the article whether this was accurate. We now understand that none of the named persons had been invited to or intended to speak at the Conference. We apologise for publishing this incorrect information.

As you’re here, we have something to ask you. What we do here to deliver real news is more important than ever. But there’s a problem: we need readers like you to chip in to help us survive. We deliver progressive, independent media, that challenges the right’s hateful rhetoric. Together we can find the stories that get lost.

We’re not bankrolled by billionaire donors, but rely on readers chipping in whatever they can afford to protect our independence. What we do isn’t free, and we run on a shoestring. Can you help by chipping in as little as £1 a week to help us survive? Whatever you can donate, we’re so grateful - and we will ensure your money goes as far as possible to deliver hard-hitting news.

    “So why are our MPs sharing its platform?”

    Because self-hatred runs like a seam through metropolitan lefty thought.

    “proving once again that ex-Muslims are the only group of people in
    Britain about whom it can be said they deserve death with relative
    impunity” But, as your article later acknowledges, these preachers also say the same about gays. The lack of criticism is as much about the identity of the speaker as it is about the target of the threat.

    Does accepting an invitation to speak at a conference mean that you agree with the organisers of that conference? Dialogue can be more productive than boycotts.

    It’s comfortable, safe, tolerant and cool to attack right wing extremists. But people with brown skin…gee, that’s kind of awkward. I might be accused by my fellow ‘progressives’ of being a horrible racist. So I’ll just keep quiet and wait for the next article about the EDL. I can show how cool I am then.

    Reckon any of these folk are interested in starting a dialogue?
