Anti-Semitism: London declaration

Mr SOUTHWICK (Caulfield) — With the threat of growing anti-Semitic activity, including a deliberate attempt to boycott businesses owned by Jews through the racist boycott, divestment and sanctions movement campaign, it is important for political leaders to stand up against this hate. The London Declaration on Combating Anti-Semitism is one way to demonstrate this support. That is why I have chosen to sign this declaration, and I congratulate the Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, and the federal Leader of the Opposition, Tony Abbott, for also signing it. I look forward to seeing all members of the Victorian Parliament following suit and signing this important declaration.
