UK: Hundreds protest against anti-Semitism in Labour Party

United Kingdom, Manchester
September 16, 2018 at 16:19 GMT +00:00 · Published

Several hundred protesters gathered in Cathedral Gardens in central Manchester on Sunday, to demonstrate against anti-Semitism, specifically within the Labour Party.

Groups including the Jewish Voice for Labour called protesters to rally in the wake of allegations of anti-Semitism within Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party, which has led to the investigation of party members and calls for Corbyn's resignation.

Rabbi Jonathan Guttentag explained that protesters want to voice their concerns of anti-Semitism in a mainstream party and that members of the Jewish community are feeling a sense of "anxiety" over the issue.

One protester explained that she wanted to show her support for the demonstration because she is concerned about the future of the country. "The current undercurrent of anti-Semitism and anti-Israel feeling is making me feel really upset and really quite angry. And I am really quite scared for my children and my grandchildren", she said.
