WATCH: Peter Tatchell’s strong words on the Left’s inertia towards ISIS

Peter Tatchell is one of the last great icons of the real Left which genuinely believes in freedom of speech, expression and religion, equality, social justice and a paragon of the gay rights and secular movements.

Here he condemns those on the ‘anti-imperialist, anti-fascist and anti-war’ Left who refuse to support the Kurds in their struggle against IS, calling it a ‘great betrayal’. He sums this up by saying ‘this shows that some on the Left are now the new Right’.

Strong stuff, and, sadly, completely true.
