Labour Suspend Jackie Walker, vice-chair of Momentum, over alleged hate comments


The Labour Party has confirmed that it has suspended Jackie Walker, a vice-chair of Momentum, over alleged anti-semitic comments. Walker’s suspension comes as the party has also suspended several of their councillors this week for other alleged anti-semitic comments.

A Facebook post for February suggests that Walker wrote the Jews “were the chief financiers of the sugar and slave trade”.

Walker criticised the suspension and said:

“I have been suspended from the Labour Party for alleged anti-Semitic comments. I have been an active anti-racist trainer and campaigner for years, often in all white communities and in the most vulnerable situations”.
