Response to Resignation of Oxford University Labour Club Co-Chair, Alex Chalmers

Following the resignation of Alex Chalmers as Co-Chair of the Oxford University Labour Club, JLM has raised the matter with our colleagues at Labour Students and issued the following statement this morning:
"JLM is a strong advocate of robust debate about the Middle East on Campus and beyond.  That support extends to discourse that is critical of Israel's Government and its policies.  However, this development, in this context, crosses the red line between legitimate discourse and incitement against Jewish students.  JLM has raised this with our colleagues at Labour Students and we are glad to see the swift condemnation of the events at OULC. They have assured us that they share our concerns and will be working very closely with UJS to tackle this problem."
Liron Velleman, JLM NEC (Youth and Student Officer)
