Motion to affiliate to Jewish Voice for Labour (JVL) 

This CLP, noting that Jewish Voice for Labour (JVL), launched at the Labour Party conference in September 2017:
  • stands for rights and justice for Jewish people everywhere, and against wrongs and injustice to Palestinians and other oppressed people anywhere
  • takes inspiration from the long history of Jewish involvement in the trade-union movement and in antiracist and antifascist struggles, including the anti-apartheid and civil-rights movements, and aims to strengthen the labour movement in its opposition to all forms of racism including antisemitism, broadening the movement’s appeal to all sections of British society;
  • aims to contribute to making the Labour Party an open, democratic and inclusive party, encouraging all ethnic groups and cultures to join and participate freely;
  • resolves to affiliate to Jewish Voice for Labour.

    Adopted by Crookes and Crosspool Labour Party branch and then Hallam CLP
