The Momentum National Committee decided yesterday by a small Majority to dismiss Jackie Walker as Vice-Chair of Momentum National Committee. Under Pressure from Zionists and Blairites in the Labour Party and against the views of Momentum nationally the Momentum Leadership capitulated completely to pressure from Anti-Corbyn forces. Momentum emerged as a result of Jeremy’s Corbyn’s election as Leader of the Labour Party representing the views of the vast majority of Workers and Youth who want to see an end to Racism , War and Austerity.
RED LIBERATION is an active participant in the local Northamptonshire Momentum group and we support wholeheartedly the following Resolution which was sent to the National Committee of Momentum .
Momentum Northamptonshire condemns the witch-hunt of Momentum vice-chair Jackie Walker on false charges of anti-Semitism.
Jackie is a prominent anti-racist campaigner and labour movement activist; she is no anti-Semite.
The anti-Corbyn wing of the Labour Party is seeking to equate anti-Zionism with anti-Semitism in order to undermine the Corbyn leadership: to oppose Zionism is to be anti-Semitic; to criticise the Israeli state is to be anti-Semitic; to demand justice for the Palestinians is to be an anti-Semitic.
It is the height of cowardice and stupidity to believe that by throwing Jackie to the wolves these attacks will stop. Failing to defend Jackie will only further embolden our attackers; it will give traction to their accusations of anti-Semitism.
We will undermine ourselves and Jeremy Corbyn if we abandon Jackie.
We are not thugs; we are not misogynists; we are not anti-Semites.
Defend Jackie Walker!
