Labour Against Zionist Islamophobic Racism
(Redirected from LAZIR)Jump to navigation Jump to search
Labour Against Zionist Islamophobic Racism (LAZIR) is a campaign group, launched on 1 June 2019, of Labour Party members declaring Israel to be a racist endeavour, asking Labour's NEC to abandon full IHRA definition of antisemitism and aiming to kick Zionism out of the Labour Party.
In a change.org petition, with some 2,500 signatories, LAZIR's founder Pete Gregson set out the group's aims and policies:
- Making free speech on Israel possible again in the Labour Party will take more that just this petition. We need a campaigning group that stops the creeping Zionism that pollutes politics in the UK, most especially that is so corrosive in Labour. We need to build a network of activists across the UK, working in a concerted manner against the toxic Jewish Labour Movement, in a campaign to allow us to decry apartheid in Israel without being branded "anti-semites". So I want to invite you to review the aims and policies of the body below, and sign up if you want to be a member.
