Director of Progress Richard Angell debates Cathy Nugent, editor of Solidarity newspaper, in this Workers’ Liberty London Forum.

How should the labour movement tackle anti-Semitism within its own ranks? As debate over left wing anti-Semitism has intensified in recent weeks, different solutions and answers have been proposed.

Listen to the debate here.

Director of Progress, Richard Angell, has promoted an “8 Point Plan” within the Labour Party, which calls for a lifetime ban for those judged anti-semitic. It is available here.

Workers’ Liberty have written: “Until the left’s political programme on Israel-Palestine is picked apart and corrected, incidents like these will continue to occur. Labour Party expulsions would have little effect on left anti-semitism; they would explain nothing and educate no-one.”

Cathy Nugent, editor of Workers’ Liberty’s newspaper Solidarity, will debate the issue with Richard Angell. Entry is free; all are welcome.
