The Labour Party is the party that brought the Race Relations Acts into law in 1968 and 1976 and that delivered the Equality Act in 2010 – those gains were not a given and meant challenging prejudice. Discrimination of any kind is unacceptable and we will oppose it wherever it appears.
The rise in racially motivated hate crimes reminds us we can never be complacent. We have a particular duty to lead the fight against antisemitism in and around our party and movement.
“Antisemitism is a poison that must be challenged wherever it raises its head, across Europe and at home. Hatred and bigotry towards Jewish people has no place in our society, whether on the streets or online. And that of course goes for the Labour Party too.”
Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of the Labour Party, April 2018
The party has a long and proud record of standing against antisemitism. Jewish people belong in the Labour Party and we are utterly committed to making it a safe and welcoming place for them.
This CLP strongly condemns any act of discrimination against members and will support those members who have experienced any act of discrimination regardless of any non-disclosure agreements.
