A group of Jewish students staged a peaceful protest outside the venue where the leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn was set to unveil the party’s new manifesto.
Protestors gathered at the main entrance, making their feelings to know to the hundreds of guests and members of the media who were arriving for the main event
“As a Jew, Labour is institutionally anti-Semitic. He allowed anti-Semitics to flourish in this Labour Party and I believe he would do the same in the country as a whole.”Protestor who wanted to remain anonymous
Prominent Jewish MP Luciana Berger quit the party last year claiming ‘corrosive’ anti-Semitism within its membership. Eight other MPS quit the party also citing the leadership’s handling of anti-Semitism as their reason for leaving.
Corbyn has since stated that every case of anti-Semitism had been fully investigated, and insisted there is no place for prejudice of this kind in this party.
The Equality and Human Rights Commission launched its own investigation into allegations in the summer.
