LSE Alumni and Donors Say "No To Antisemitism at LSE!"

On 20 March Richard Falk was invited by Mary Kaldor to speak at LSE. Falk is a disgraced ex-UN official who was denounced by the United Kingdom on at least three separate occasions for antisemitism. Completely predictably the meeting was a feeding frenzy for antisemites and descended into chaos. Two silent protesters were ejected and a well-known antisemite shouted “’Raus” as they left the room. He then turned around to the Jewish students at the back of the room and said, “being chucked out for causing trouble, just like you were in Germany." He was also heard recommending the works of disgraced historian David Irving, who in 2000 was proven in court to be an antisemite, a Holocaust denier and an admirer of Hitler. It is also reported that Atzmon later said, “Jews are always expelled for a reason.”

We are alumni and/or donors to LSE. We will not donate until there is an apology from the Director, an undertaking that the School will adopt the IHRA definition of antisemitism and a commitment that the School will not invite external speakers with a history of antisemitism.
