Jeremy Corbyn should join CAA’s call for Len McClusky’s resignation, after appalling threat to Labour MPs who stand against antisemitism

On Wednesday, the General Secretary of Britain’s largest trade union, Unite, declared war on Labour MPs who have bravely stood up to antisemites in their own Party.

Jeremy Corbyn’s article in the Evening Standard is doublespeak for apologising whilst injecting more venom

Nobody should be surprised by the failed meeting with Jeremy Corbyn and only more disappointment lies ahead for those who seek to change him

Those who appear shocked by Jeremy Corbyn’s failure to accept any of the demands made of him by two Jewish charities, the Board of Deputies and the Jewish Leadership Council, fail to remember that we have been here before.

Jeremy Corbyn sits silent and aloof during debate on antisemitism, as Jewish Labour MPs castigate his failure to deal with the antisemites who terrorise them

Yesterday, the House of Commons witnessed an extraordinary debate on antisemitism. It was extraordinary because it had to happen at all; for its emotion, but most of all for the testimony given by MPs, especially Labour MPs, and the blame they laid at the door of the Labour Party’s Leader, Jeremy Corbyn. Three of Labour’s […]

Why CAA will not attend meetings with Jeremy Corbyn

Yesterday, the Labour Party invited various organisations to a “round table” meeting with Jeremy Corbyn about antisemitism.

Update on the national demonstration at 2pm this Sunday, calling on Labour to hold Jeremy Corbyn to account

What is happening: Under Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour Party has become a safe haven for racists.

What is being called for: Labour must lead by example and show that […]

Last week, Jeremy Corbyn was exposed as being a member of a deeply antisemitic Facebook group in which he participated for two years.

Why did CAA and Jewish organisations around the world criticise Jeremy Corbyn for not mentioning Jews in his initial Holocaust memorial message when others did the same?

When Jeremy Corbyn wrote a statement in the Holocaust Educational Trust memorial book which omitted any mention of Jews and antisemitism, Campaign Against Antisemitism and a number of other Jewish organisations around the world, such as the Anti-Defamation League, condemned him.

Comment: As Theresa May names the “new antisemitism”, Jeremy Corbyn rushes to protect it

Campaign Against Antisemitism is determinedly apolitical, as should be the fight against antisemitism. Unfortunately, as our database of antisemitism in political parties shows, some parties fight antisemitism, and others let it rise, and even throw fuel into its ravenous flames. This week, the contrasting approaches of our political parties were once again thrown into stark […]

Jeremy Corbyn’s promise to review the decision not to expel Ken Livingstone comes too late — the horse has bolted

Having found Ken Livingstone guilty of all charges, the subsequent failure of Labour’s National Constitutional Committee (NCC) panel to expel him last night constituted perhaps the darkest hour of Labour history as a self-described “anti-racist” institution.

Corbyn’s hypocrisy exposed yet again by Labour’s latest stealthy readmission of suspended antisemite

Three weeks ago, on 12th December, Jeremy Corbyn publicly stated that he and the Labour Party accepted the International Definition of Antisemitism, as adopted by the government.

Latest allegations say Corbyn accepted pro-Hamas donation and Chakrabarti ignored “Jewish conspiracy” slur

Shami Chakrabarti nominated for a peerage by Corbyn in return for clearing Labour of antisemitism

If anybody still took Shami Chakrabarti’s report on antisemitism in the Labour Party or Jeremy Corbyn’s declared opposition to antisemitism seriously, this must be the final straw.

Jeremy Corbyn grilled on antisemitism by Home Affairs Select Committee

Our Campaign was not among those that offered to give evidence to the Chakrabarti Inquiry into antisemitism in the Labour Party.

Critics of Jeremy Corbyn dismissed as “extreme Zionists”, Labour Party to “investigate”

Critics of Jeremy Corbyn, who is frontrunner to lead the Labour Party, are being smeared as extremists who are trying to stifle criticism of Israel.

As we have written before, we are concerned both by Corbyn’s associations and his many supporters’ apparent indifference […]

Jeremy Corbyn and antisemites

The Campaign Against Antisemitism will always be apolitical and non-partisan. However, we also must not fear to call out antisemitism wherever we see it. Jeremy Corbyn hails from the far-left, and whereas far-right antisemitism is anathema to the far-left, Jewish conspiracy myths and Islamist antisemitism are often accommodated. In the past week we have been […]

The Labour Party’s promise to cast aside the International Definition of Antisemitism and come up with its own better version is a further insult to the Jewish community

Those who are careful readers of the Labour Party’s attitudes to the Jewish community will be aware that far from positioning themselves to resolve their self-made antisemitism crisis, the Party’s leadership has avoided punishing the loyal antisemites in their midst, and betrayed at every turn a deep reluctance to challenge the far-left worldview that is […]

CAA’s next moves on antisemitism in the Labour Party

At our demonstration outside Labour Party Head Office on 8th April, we asked you whether we should return if there was no meaningful progress, and we tentatively set a date of 13th May, this Sunday.

It’s not easy to keep track of what the Labour Party and Momentum say constitutes antisemitism

Campaign Against Antisemitism tries to keep track of what each political party defines as antisemitism.

Following the Government’s lead, in December 2016, the Labour Party stated that it had adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism. A […]

In a landmark High Court victory, Senior Coroner Mary Hassell has been defeated in her campaign to continue delaying Jewish and Muslim burials.

Why the so-called Jewish Voice for Labour is a sham

On Wednesday last week, an organisation calling itself Jewish Voice for Labour (JVL) held a meeting in Manchester, with a speech from co-founder Naomi Wimborne-Idrissi as the main attraction.

Valerie Vaz MP, the Shadow Leader of the House, was interviewed by BBC Radio 4 last night but repeatedly praised antisemitism.
