In solidarity with the Jewish community and Jewish Labour members, the Leader of the Barnet Labour Group, Cllr Barry Rawlings, will be leading a delegation of Barnet Labour councillors, local election candidates and party members to attend the 'Call to Action against Anti-Semitism' taking place in Parliament Square at 5.30pm this evening.
Cllr Rawlings said:
"I will be attending the protest this evening in support of the Jewish community and Jewish Labour Party members.
"In Barnet we know from our own experience the level of concern Jewish residents have about anti-Semitism in the Labour Party because they talk to us about it on the doorstep.
"Serious progress must be made to acknowledge and address these deep seated concerns, and that is why I will be attending and supporting the Call to Action event at Parliament Square.
"Barnet Labour stands alongside the Jewish community, as we always have and we always will. We are committed to working with the Jewish community to ensure anti-Semitism has no refuge in our Party or anywhere."
