No Room for Racism
JfJfP Press Release, 8 January 2009 (for immediate release)
Reports in yesterday’s newspapers speak of threats against British Jews as revenge for the brutal invasion of Gaza.
This is racism.
There is no place for racism of any kind in a solidarity movement.
We particularly value the support for this statement of PSC, CAABU, War on Want, Arab Media Watch, Action Palestine, GMB, FBU, Jeremy Corbyn MP, the Stop the War Coalition, Interpal, the Amos Trust and JSG as well as the PLO General Delegation in the UK who have all consistently welcomed our central involvement in the solidarity movement, just as we value the effusive support of faith groups, including the many Muslims, Hindus and Christians on last Saturday’s march who enthusiastically took our leaflets, asked to hold our placards and be photographed with us.
Jews for Justice for Palestinians has been and will continue to work against Israel’s military repression of the Palestinians and for a Just Peace and will take part in Saturday’s demonstration.
