UK: Thousands protest against Labour's Corbyn over anti-Semitism claims

Around 2,500 people protested outside the Labour Party HQ on Victoria Street in London on Sunday, calling for Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn to clamp down on instances of anti-Semitism within the party. Activists led by the Campaign against Anti-Semitism held banners with slogans such as «Labour hold Corbyn to account» and «anti-Semitism is a crime.» «Jeremy Corbyn is an absolute disgrace... Еще, he has facilitated the rise of anti-Semitism within this country to an extent that hasn't been seen in living memory, he is a stain on humanity,» one protester said. Another protester stated, «he is the least equipped person to be aware of and tackle anti-Semitism because he himself has a clear pattern of behaviour in this regard.» Corbyn apologised for the «hurt and pain» caused by instances of anti-Semitism within Labour's ranks, in a letter to the Board of Deputies of British Jews and the Jewish Leadership Council last month.
