Shami Chakrabarti Inquiry into antisemitism in the Labour Party: response to launch event and CST - JLC submission
30 Jun 2016 by CST
Today saw the launch of the much anticipated report of Shami Chakrabarti’s Inquiry into antisemitism and racism within the Labour Party. This report followed two previous inquiries into Labour Party antisemitism, by Labour Students and Baroness Jan Royall. Many of the complaints that led to each of the inquiries remain unresolved. CST and our colleagues at the Jewish Leadership Council (JLC) made a detailed submission to this latest Inquiry. Many of our recommendations are echoed in the final report’s language concerning Zionism, the term 'Zio' and Holocaust analogies.
