Not a single @UKLabour MP joins hundreds of British Jews demonstrating against #RacistLabour in Parliament Square…
.@EuanPhilipps from @LabourAgainstAS: “They're trying to shift the goalposts again and make it easier for antisemites to stay in @UKLabour...It’s the politics of the 1930s.”
Theresa Villiers MP: “I find it truly astonishing that @UKLabour is ignoring the widely-held definition of antisemitism because it believes it knows best.”
.@GNuseibeh, Chairman of Muslims Against Antisemitism: “Do not hide behind pro-Arab, pro-Muslim or pro-Palestinian causes to justify your racism. We as Muslims do not need your support. We do not need the support of antisemites in @UKLabour.”
.@SSilvUK, CAA’s Director of Investigations and Enforcement: “In the @UKLabour Party, the right to be antisemitic is now to be protected.”
Lord Stuart Polak: “For me this began when the Momentum lot threw a brick through the window of @AngelaEagle when she was standing as leader of @UKLabour. We’ve seen all that before. We know where that has been, and we know where that leads.”
.@RabbiShaw: “It is shocking that I have to think about the modern day @UKLabour Party in the same way as I think about those in our history who have tried to destroy us.”
.@MLewisLawyer: “I am a libel lawyer, but let me tell you that the words ‘@JeremyCorbyn is a racist’ are not defamatory, they’re true. If he wants to sue about that, he can do, but he is a racist, he leads a racist Party and anyone who supports that Party is supporting racism.”
.@IainDale: “I have never ever been on a demonstration before. I have never spoken at a demonstration before. I am not a Jew. But you don’t have to be Jewish to recognise what is happening in the @UKLabour Party.”
.@GideonFalter, CAA Chairman: “By trying to redefine antisemitism his way, @JeremyCorbyn has left no doubt that he is the leader of an antisemitic institution, and he is perfectly happy with that. The @UKLabour Party should be abandoned by all decent people.”
Thanks to everyone who came, to our eloquent and forthright speakers, to the @MetPoliceUK and @CST_UK teams who protected us, and to the CAA staff and volunteers who pulled this whole demonstration together in 48 hours!
And the prize for largest #RacistLabour demonstration photo in a newspaper goes to...!

Appalling double standard as @UKLabour NEC member @PeterWillsman let off disciplinary charges despite tirade accusing Jewish “Trump fanatics” of “making up” antisemitism…
Mr Willsman should have no input whatsoever into decisions about antisemitism in the Party. Furthermore, he should be expelled for his appalling tirade accusing the Jewish community and its rabbinic leadership of conspiring to falsify or exaggerate antisemitism allegations.
Instead of investigating Mr Willsman, he has been exonerated by Labour’s General Secretary, Jennie Formby, who was reportedly satisfied with an apology. He is now standing for reelection to the NEC along with other candidates, including some who have defended Ken Livingstone.

Parliamentary @UKLabour Party votes to adopt International Definition of Antisemitism in defiance of @JeremyCorbyn’s allies’ rewritten definition…
.@GideonFalter, Chairman of CAA, said: “The Jewish community is best placed to define antisemitism and it overwhelmingly backs the International Definition of Antisemitism, which is why the British Government and numerous official bodies such as the College of Policing have...
...adopted the definition. We commend the brave Labour MPs who have stood up to their leaders today in defence of the Jewish community, and frankly in defence of decency. Tomorrow’s meeting of the NEC will be a watershed moment for the Labour Party. If it adopts its own...

CAA’s Demonstration and Event Monitoring Unit (DEMU) is gathering evidence at the pro-Hizballah “#AlQuds Day” parade. If crimes are committed we intend to take legal action to bring the perpetrators to justice. Please send your own photographs or videos to
Already police are having to deploy to keep various sides apart. As the pro-#Hizballah parade gets underway. #BanHizballah #AlQuds
To leave no doubt what this parade is really about, the organisers have been handing out placards declaring unity with Hizballah. How is @IHRC still allowed to be a charity @ChtyCommission? A disgrace.
