Public meeting: Corbyn, Antisemitism and Justice for Palestine

Corbyn, Antisemitism and Justice for Palestine public meeting

Monday 17th September 2018, 7.00pm
The Kitchen, Silver St, Bristol, BS1 2AG

The introduction to the meeting from Stop The War Coalition states “Criticism of Israel is being conflated with antisemitism in ways that threaten free speech and the right to protest while silencing Palestinian voices. We must vigorously oppose all forms of antisemitism, but we can’t let smears be used to silence criticism of the Israeli state.”

– Lindsey German, Convenor of Stop the War Coalition
– Bernard Regan, Palestine Solidarity Campaign national committee
– Salma Karmi-Ayyoub, British-Palestinian human rights lawyer
– Rob Ferguson, Jewish anti-racist
– Jay Blackwood, Jewish Voice for LabourChair: Michal Nahman

The introduction goes onto explain that –

“Jeremy Corbyn – a lifelong anti-racist in all respects and prominent figure in the Palestine solidarity movement – is being labelled an antisemite and a racist by those who oppose his politics and leadership of the Labour Party.

“This meeting will discuss the importance of challenging any attempt at a witch hunt, strengthening the struggle for Palestinian freedom while maintaining zero tolerance for antisemitism and all forms of racism.

“In order to cover the costs of the venue we will be asking for donations on the door for those who are able to afford it. The venue has a large capacity so let’s make it a big meeting.”

This event is organised by Bristol Stop the War Coalition.

Stop Trident, Stop the bombing, #WELFARENOTWARFARE

Tuesday 2nd February, 7-8.30pm

Trinity Centre, Trinity Road,
Bristol, BS2 0NW

Speakers include:

Rebecca Johnson, CND
John Rees, Stop The War
Shahrar Ali, Deputy Leader of Green Party
Mhairi Threlfall, Labour Party councillor

The government will push through a vote in parliament this summer on renewal of the Trident nuclear weapons system. Jeremy Corbyn has made clear his opposition to spending £183 billion on weapons of mass destruction while our public services are being destroyed by austerity. Jobs on these deadly systems could be converted into sustainable jobs making things we need.

Come and hear about the issues, such as diversification, and join this discussion in the build up to the anti-Trident demonstration in London on the 27th February and to the vote in parliament on renewal of Trident.

Meeting sponsored by Bristol Stop The War Coalition, Bristol Campaign For Nuclear Disarmament and Bristol People’s Assembly Against Austerity.
