I understand that Haringey Council intends to introduce a ruling that anybody who identifies Israel as racist and by definition opposes Zionism will be deemed to be anti-Semitic. Apparently this ruling will be pushed through the Council in late July.
Haringey Momentum will meet to discuss how to resist this move at Wood Green Social Club on Tuesday 28th at 7pm.
Haringey Momentum last year passed a motion in support of the Palestinian cause which we of course fully supported; they also agreed to join the Palestine Solidarity Campaign. We need to build the campaign to stop the Council identifying us as racist.
Haringey Council’s move is only part of a nation wide campaign orchestrated from the Israeli Embassy and the Tory Government. The Israeli Government is clearly in a panic at the World Wide success of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Campaign and want to shut it down once and for all.
We must stop them.
