Palestinian voices went largely unheard during the protracted debate over whether or not the Labour party should adopt the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance's definition of antisemitism. An antisemitic fringe clearly exists on the left of British politics, however there are also genuine concerns that the IHRA document could have a chilling effect on pro-Palestinian advocacy. I went to speak to Salma Karmi-Ayyoub, a British-Palestinian criminal barrister about exactly what issues there are with the examples cited in the document and how antisemitism can be fought more effectively.

It's easy for politicians (and journalists before you point that out in the comments) to get stuck in the Westminster bubble and to become removed from the people they're meant to represent. Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour party have been running community organising events around the country to build up an army of activists and voters. I took a trip to the event in Mansfield find out why so many people were giving up an afternoon in August to be there.
