The Equalities and Human Rights Commission report into the Labour party

LAAS Statement on the EHRC Report

Denny Taylor, founder of Labour Against Antisemitism, has said:

“We welcome the publication of the Equalities and Human Rights Commission report into the Labour Party.

In our view the report’s conclusion that the Labour Party has acted unlawfully is a vindication both of our decision to ask for an EHRC inquiry and of our three-year campaign against institutional anti-Jewish racism in the Labour Party. It is also a victory for those who believe in a viable mainstream Labour Party that the Jewish community can support without fear.

The responsibility now falls on Keir Starmer and the Labour movement not only to follow the recommendations of the report, but to ask serious questions about how the British Left has found itself in this situation. Antisemitism has also flourished in our trade unions, our universities and in our media, and this must also be tackled.

In the meantime we will continue to report instances of antisemitism in the Labour Party and hold its behaviour to account - as we have always done.”
