Motion: Antisemitism

Motion: Antisemitism

On Thursday 5th April 2018, North Cornwall CLP passed the following motion:

“This CLP notes the recent media furore surrounding accusations of antisemitism in the Labour Party.

This CLP also notes that antisemitism is a real problem in our society, and like all other forms of racism, must be combated unrelentingly – including through a determined programme of widespread political education. One of the unique dangers of modern forms of antisemitism is the way it sometimes masquerades as “progressive” politics, something we recognise.

This CLP affirms its support for Jeremy Corbyn, and welcomes both his and new General Secretary Jennie Formby’s statements that the Chakrabarti report into disciplinary processes will be implemented, in full, as a priority – such processes must follow the principles of natural justice and be completed within a timely manner.

This CLP also welcomes the announcement of antisemitism awareness training for Party members, for without the political tools to challenge racism in our communities, the fight is much harder.

This CLP mandates the CLP Secretary to write to the Leader’s office to express our support and solidarity for Jeremy Corbyn, and to pledge ourselves to his side in the fight against intolerance in whatever shape it may take.”
