Racism & fascism
As a Jewish organisation, we occupy a space which holds stories and experiences of racism, fascism, genocide and of survival and resilience.
We oppose and stand up to racism and fascism in all its forms.
And we say, NEVER AGAIN.

“I’m here because that’s what we do. When we see and hear what we are currently seeing and hearing in Australia and internationally. When we witness the emboldening of the far right and neo nazis, when we see the normalisation of hatred, homophobia, antisemitism, islamophobia, racism, sexism.. We do something. We take strategic action alongside our communities. I’m here because there are long intertwined histories of resistance and resilience in this country and around the world.”
Antisemitism is – broadly speaking – animosity, prejudice, or discrimination against Jewish people, history, religion and culture. Antisemitism is a complex form of oppression with deep historical roots, often with brutal expressions, and has evolved to adapt to various historical and cultural contexts. It works with and alongside other forms of racism, xenophobia and colonisation.
