We need a union campaign against antisemitism

“…when you start talking about Jewish ritual murders of Christian priests, or organ-harvesting by the Israeli army, or deny the very existence of anti-semitism — you’ve crossed a red line. Trade unions in Europe, including in the UK, are increasingly crossing that line.”

“It’s not enough that the Jewish community has spoken out on this. Trade unionists must speak out and say that enough is enough — that anti-semitism has no place in our movement and should be outcast.”

“It’s time for a trade union campaign against anti-semitism in the UK and Ireland.”

    Excellent article and very sane. I don’t share all that much by way of politics with AWL, but I am as one with them on this.

    It’s just a pity that the likes of Mike Cushman and Tom Hickey hold so much more sway with the UCU NEC and Congress than the clear-eyed members of AWL.
