Andrew Feinstein: The anti-apartheid activist trying to stop Keir Starmer

Anti-war campaigner and pro-Palestine activist Andrew Feinstein thinks he has real chance of unseating Labour Party leader Keir Starmer when they compete for his London constituency at next month's general election.

Born in apartheid South Africa in the 1960s, Feinstein fought for a free South Africa, and would later serve as an elected member of parliament under Nelson Mandela.

However, the corruption he saw in the higher echelons of power through arms deals led him to move to the UK, where he subsequently wrote multiple books that investigated corruption in the global arms trade.

In this episode of UNAPOLOGETIC, Feinstein shares his life experiences and tells us why international law and civility are at stake at this present moment.

He also discusses his election rival, Starmer, and says should he beat the Labour leader, the party may be forced to choose a new leader.

UNAPOLOGETIC is a show that unapologetically looks at the life, times and views of some unapologetic and not so unapologetic humans. Hosted by Ashfaaq Carim
