Labour must hold Jeremy Corbyn to account, and there is nowhere better to deliver that message than to Labour’s doorstep.
We will hold our demonstration at Labour Party Head Office, 105 Victoria Street, London SW1E 6QT.
Campaign Against Antisemitism has always been apolitical: we call out antisemitism in every political party without fear or favour, but what we have seen happen within the Labour Party since Jeremy Corbyn assumed its leadership has made antisemitism within other political parties seem pale by comparison.
Our campaign is about seeking justice, and that is what we demand from the Labour Party. Labour must lead by example and show that Jeremy Corbyn is bound by the same rules as Leader as he was as a backbencher, by investigating the disciplinary complaint we have filed against him for bringing the Party into disrepute. Labour must hold Jeremy Corbyn to account, if it does not, we must hold Labour as a whole to account.
So on Sunday at 2pm, join us as Jews and non-Jews alike converge on London from all over Britain to stand up for our Jewish community and drive home to Labour that it must finally deliver on its broken promise: zero tolerance for antisemitism.
When: Sunday 8th April at 2pm
Where: Labour Party Head Office, 105 Victoria Street, London SW1E 6QT. Nearest Underground stations are St James’ Park (5-minute walk away, on the District and Circle lines) and Victoria (7-minute walk away, on the Victoria, Circle and District lines, and national rail).
What: Jews and non-Jews alike will converge on London from all over Britain to stand up for our Jewish community and drive home to Labour that they must finally deliver on their broken promise: zero tolerance for antisemitism.
Bring: Bagels and probably an anorak. And a biro – you will see why on Sunday. Everything else is provided, including placards.
Invite: Your friends and family. Children can come too, but only with their parents. There will be a counterdemonstration, but the police will make sure that they are kept separated from us. “A counter demonstration?” you ask? Indeed, this is the reality for those who stand against antisemitism in 2018.
How to help: If you want to help with stewarding, go to antisemitism.org/volunteer. If you want to help fund the demonstration, please donate to and share our crowdfunding page, and if you want to help fund us with a monthly amount to help with all of the work we do even when there isn’t a demonstration, go to antisemitism.org/donate.
If you have a question: You can reply to this e-mail, but please bear in mind that we are absolutely swamped with e-mails at the moment, and from sunset on Thursday until Saturday night we will be observing the Jewish festival of Pesach, which is, coincidentally, about standing up to antisemitism.
