In October 2021, Professor David Miller was sacked by the University of Bristol after an outrageous campaign of demonisation and censorship by the UK’s Israel lobby. Professor Miller has been falsely accused of ‘antisemitism’, despite two legal investigations clearing him of the bogus charges. In February 2022, after an appeal, Bristol upheld the decision to sack Professor Miller.
Why is Professor Miller being targeted?
Professor Miller is the Director of the Left Legal Fighting Fund, which has been campaigning since 2019 on behalf of activists, protesters, and whistleblowers. The Israel lobby wants to shut them down.
The campaign against him has been led by the pro-Israel Community Security Trust which has been aided by a variety of Zionist groups including the Union of Jewish Students, the Jewish Leadership Council, the Board of Deputies of British Jews, the Zionist Federation and many others.
Professor Miller urgently needs help to:
We now have the opportunity to get justice for Professor Miller, and to expose the Israel lobby’s politically motivated campaign designed to confuse and intimidate the University of Bristol. This is a landmark case. It is unprecedented for a British academic to be sacked simply for expressing his views on Palestine and Zionism, in a personal capacity, outside work.
Don’t let the Israel lobby have a veto on who can teach in our universities and how they do it. Academic freedom is under threat.
