Momentum’s vice-chair, Jackie Walker, is facing calls to resign after she criticised Holocaust Memorial Day at a JLP training session . Claiming it commemorated Jewish victims alone. Technically she is incorrect. She said in reply: “In practice, it’s not actually circulated and advertised as such,” “I was looking for information and I still haven’t heard a definition of antisemitism that I can work with.”
The above does not constitute any offence or hate-speech. Please sign in solidarity for her right to freedom of speech in our Democracy .
Why is this important?
Calls to oust people for making fair comment - sets a dangerous precedent ; such moves constitute an erosion of democracy - a democracy for which many in this land have died to protect , in our lands history.
