Britain’s leading publicist for the Assad regime, Vanessa Beeley, whose 
recent Bristol meeting we reported on last week, is capping her tour of 
the UK with a meeting in London on Wednesday. This particular event has 
some particularly bizarre features.

For one thing, it is taking place in the Marx Memorial Library, a 
hallowed institution of the British left based in a building that has 
been host to London Radical and Socialist organisations since the 1870s 
(both William Morris and Lenin worked there.

Beeley on the other hand swims in rather different waters. In her time 
she has been hosted by various conspiracy gatherings and sites from an 
intertwined nexus that includes Alternative View, UK Column, and 21st 
Century Wire. All of these groups are somewhere on the libertarian right 
and she has eventually found a permanent home as Associate Editor at 
21st Century Wire. This site was created in 2009 as a climate-change 
denying project, linked to the US InfoWars, and is currently supporting 
Donald Trump, and providing apologetics for his Islamophobic travel ban.
