REGISTER here to attend the webinar.

Among other groups in Europe and the UK, the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) in the UK is campaigning again the IHRA definition of antisemitism that conflates criticism of the policies and practices of the State of Israel, with antisemitism.

The Director of the ELSC Giovanni Fassina will be part of the panel as the organisation has been providing legal support to many Palestinian rights advocates who faced unfounded allegations of antisemitism in the UK, based on the use of the IHRA definition.

Join us at 6pm (UK Time) on Wednesday the 22nd of September as the PSC launches its ‘No to the IHRA definition’ website which aims to give activists and campaigners the information and tools needed to resist or push back against the adoption of the IHRA definition of antisemitism in various settings across the UK, including within universities and local councils.

Speakers:
Ben Jamal – PSC Director
Giovanni Fassina – European Legal Support Center (ELSC) Director
Tom Hickey – British Committee for Universities of Palestine (BRICUP)
Rabbi Alissa Wise – Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) Former Deputy Director
Neve Gordon – Professor of International Law and Human Rights, Queen Mary University
