Thomas Gardiner is a committed anti-racist
12 November, 2020
• WE are writing to express our solidarity and support to Councillor Thomas Gardiner who is being subjected to obvious and unfounded bullying by the Conservative and Liberal Democrat parties, (Opposition groups call for Labour councillor to quit, November 2).
Cllr Gardiner is an active, effective, and brave advocate for Kilburn ward. He is a committed anti-racist and, in stark contrast to the inactivity of political preeners such as Cllr Oliver Cooper and Cllr Luisa Porritt, he has spoken out and acted against anti-Semitism wherever it appears.
The Tories and Liberal Democrats should stop trying to profit from the fears of Camden’s Jewish communities and instead seek to emulate Thomas Gardiner’s excellent record in defending Jews and other minorities.
