A Scottish CLP has issued a strong condemnation of antisemitism amongst Labour members and set out steps to tackle it in a move that is being widely praised as a model response to the crisis engulfing the party.
On Tuesday night Eastwood Constituency Labour Party overwhelmingly passed a motion of solidarity and support for the local Jewish Community in recognition of the hurt caused by the growth of antisemitism within the UK Labour Party.
The motion condemned examples of antisemitism in the UK Labour Party and acknowledged the failures of the national party to tackle the issue.
It said the CLP would hold the national party to account over antisemitism and would set up training for local members. It said it would adopt a clear definition of antisemitism and engage with the local Jewish Community, initially by sending a letter to the Glasgow Jewish Representative Council.
The motion was signed by the leader and chair of the Labour Group on East Renfrewshire Council.
CLP representatives will meet next month with the Glasgow Jewish Representative Council and other local organisations.
