Reinstate Jacqueline Walker to the Labour Party

This petition had 2,953 supporters

Jackie Walker has been suspended from the Labour Party on the basis of posts on her Facebook page in February in which she argued that the state of Israel cannot use the Holocaust to justify committing crimes against the people of Palestine.

This information was collected by an organisation called the Israeli Advocacy Organisation and published by the pro-Israel Jewish Chronicle and passed onto the Labour Party.

Her comments have been taken out of context but even out of context can in no way be construed as antisemitic.

Jackie is of Jewish heritage and her partner is Jewish. She works tirelessly to combat racism in all its forms, and has been key in coordinating the response to the recent fascist demonstrations that have been focused on Dover.

We call on you to immediately reinstate her to the Labour Party.
