We stand in solidarity with the Jewish community

14 March, 2019

• WE, the Holborn & St Pancras Labour Party executive officers, stand in solidarity with the Jewish community and the Jewish Labour Movement as anti-Semitism in the UK continues to rise.

Anti-Semitism has no place in our movement and neither do those who minimise or dismiss the experiences of the Jewish community.

We continue to call on the Labour Party nationally to be stronger in rooting out anti-Semitism from within our own ranks, to deal with complaints quickly and effectively and to tackle the culture in which anti-Semitism has been allowed to spread.

Locally we continue to fight for our party, a party of tolerance, inclusivity and equality and pledge to stand up to, call out and challenge anti-Semitism wherever it is found.

We are proud to have the Jewish Labour Movement as an affiliate and stand with them and the wider Jewish community in complete solidarity against the vitriolic abuse they are subjected to.

We want to reiterate that Holborn & St Pancras Labour Party wholeheartedly welcomes Jewish members and is an open and inclusive party to all who share our values.
