  • Srebrenica Memorial Day 2018

    11 Jul 2018 by CST

    This year, CST is recognising the 23rd anniversary of the genocide in Srebrenica, on 11 July, when thousands of men and boys were systematically murdered, simply because they were Muslim. The Srebrenica massacre was part of a larger series of ethnic conflicts in the Balkans which resulted in the deaths of almost 150,000 people and the displacement of approximately 4 million people. As an organisation that works to counter antisemitism and protect our Jewish community, it is vital to commemorate the Srebrenica massacre and to take a stand against hatred and discrimination that targets groups based on their religion, ethnicity, gender, sexuality or any type of difference.   

  • Finsbury Park attack anniversary: why as Jews we should stand against all forms of intolerance

    19 Jun 2018 by CST

    Today marks the anniversary of the Finsbury Park terrorist attack in London. Eight members of the Muslim community, who were gathered near to a mosque during Ramadan, were injured by a van driven by Darren Osborne, a far right sympathiser. One man, Makram Ali, was struck and later died at the scene. This horrific attack, perpetrated by an anti-Muslim terrorist, serves as a reminder of what bigotry, hatred and prejudice can lead to. As a Jewish community, we should stand against all forms of hatred against any minority communities.

“I’ve now worked with CST on and off for about 11 or 12 years directly, and in that time I’ve seen it develop into a really professional organisation – well-funded, well-organised, delivers on its promises, very challenging, there’s no messing about... But it has my support and it has the Police service of the United Kingdom’s support – great partner, it delivers what it says on the tin and it does its best to keep safe and share intelligence and allow us to move forward together.”
