Anti-racists protest outside Labour HQ against the party's support for Israeli apartheid

ANTI-RACISM protesters gathered outside Labour Party headquarters yesterday against its silence over Israel’s plan to annex huge swathes of Palestinian land.

The demonstration was organised by Women of Colour and supported by groups including Jewish Voice for Labour. 

Protesters held banners that read: “End Labour support 4 Israeli Apartheid.”

Despite some individual Labour MPs’ opposition to the annexation, the party has remained silent to the nation’s illegal actions. 

One organiser on the demonstration said they were fighting against all racism that existed in the Labour Party.

“They cannot and should not just sit there, get our votes and do nothing,” she said.

The former A&E worker called for unity to bring about change, and urged supporters to remain in the party.

“We must fight [racism], we must speak up, we must speak out,” she added.

Protesters then took the knee in a minute’s silence to remember all those who have lost their lives to systemic racism and Covid-19.
