The Internet, Facebook, Defamation & Retaliation
|The Internet, Facebook, Defamation & Retaliation With Canadian Lethridge Professor Anthony Hall
"The Internet, Facebook, Defamation & Retaliation" was the title of a presentation by Professor Anthony Hall of the University of Lethbridge in Alberta Canada. Prof. Hall talked about how a reprehensible image and text was placed on his Facebook wall for a few hours on August 26, 2016 and then deployed to target him professionally in what amounts an organized political frame-up. B'nai Brith Canada, the Canadian branch of the US and Israeli-based Anti-Defamation League, conducted the initial smear campaign based on publicizing the maliciously engineered content of the planted Facebook post put on Prof. Hall's Facebook wall without his knowlewdge or consent for a few hours on Aug. 26. When Prof. Hall later became aware of the post's reprehensible contents, he condemned the post's outrageous statements about Jewish people.
The result of this operation was that in early October of 2016, Prof. Hall was suspended, initially without pay, and without any process of independent adjudication as required by the collective agreement between the University Administration and the University of Lethbridge Faculty Association (ULFA). ULFA and the 68,000 member-strong Canadian Association of University Teachers are both demanding that Prof. Hall's case must be returned to the procedures outlined in the collective agreement. They are demanding that University Administration cease and desist defaming the Canadian professor along the same lines as those initiated by B'nai Brith Canada.
Professor Hall talks about the possibility that Facebook Inc. was a party to the conspiracy to ruin the career of this critic of Israeli policies and actions. He points to negotiations between Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu aimed at engineering Facebook content to favor the Israeli side in the conflict between the Israeli state and the Palestinian people. He also highlights his insistence on addressing the evidence pointing to the role of Israel First partisans in the notorious lies and crimes of 9/11.
This talk was at LaborTech 2017 in San Francisco with the title “The Internet, Technology, The Gig Economy and the Future of Labor”.
