Current security situation

10 Aug 2011 by CST

CST website has been updated with security advice following widescale public disturbances and riots in London, Birmingham and elsewhere.

To be clear, there is no suggestion that any of the violence has been deliberately directed against Jews or Jewish communal property.

The violence is, however, quite indiscriminate and could as easily affect the Jewish community as any other.

The situation remains highly volatile, and there is no way of knowing at this time if it will further deteriorate.

We advise calm at this difficult time and request that Police and CST advice be closely followed.

“Since 2003, CST has been a stalwart supporter of ODIHR in its efforts to effectively monitor antisemitic hate crime in the OSCE Region. With its rigorous methodology and innovative partnerships with the British police, it is viewed by many as representing the gold standard for NGO responses to all forms of hate crime. I wish CST all success in its exciting new phase of work.”
