Hodge’s “Fucking antisemite and racist” Jeremy Corbyn will be
speaking alongside rabbis, the Bengali and Indian communities, Stand Up to Racism and
members from the Jewish Socialists and Jewish Voice for Labour. Their
co-chair Leah Levane, was recently thrown out of the Labour Party
conference. We will be remembering those who stopped fascism all
those years ago and reminding ourselves that the struggle continues.
I don’t think Hodge or Starmer will join us.
