In 2015, a backbench MP named Jeremy Corbyn stood to become leader of the Labour Party.
We saw him for what he was.
Campaign Against Antisemitism has been at the forefront of exposing Labour’s antisemitism in the media ever since. For years we uncovered evidence and spoke out.
In 2016, following the Chakrabarti whitewash, we were the first to declare Labour institutionally antisemitic. As we exposed Mr Corbyn’s past, in 2018 we became the only organisation to call him an antisemite.
We demanded justice on the front pages and demonstrated in our thousands. But there was no justice.
We were told that holding Labour to account legally would be impossible. We disagreed.
In 2018, Campaign Against Antisemitism referred the Labour Party to the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) and became the complainant in its unprecedented statutory investigation. The Jewish Labour Movement and Labour Against Antisemitism Ltd made further submissions which supported our referral.
Over many months, Campaign Against Antisemitism’s investigators and lawyers submitted hundreds of pages of evidence and argument to the EHRC in pursuit of justice.
After many months, the EHRC is publishing its report.
Campaign Against Antisemitism is not permitted to comment on the contents of the report until it has been released by the EHRC. We will be holding a press conference after the report is released and providing analysis from our lawyers to our mailing list subscribers. Subscribe to receive the latest updates.
