Chilling, distressing, saddening and shocking.

@JewishLabour as someone who does my best to challenge antisemitism you have my support. The abuse you receive makes me feel physically sick.

@izzyjengalenga, @mikekatz, @stephjlm_5779, @_petermason, @RuthSmeeth
Joe Goldberg, @sarahsackman , @vellstells , @ellarachelrose, @mrwtch, Jack Lubner, @l_attfield, Rebecca Filer, @redstarneil, @JoshuaGarfield, Alex Richardson, Cathy Ashley, Jane Blank and others I have missed out you have my full support.
I know I am not and probably likely never will be a @UKLabour member, but this is not about party politics, it is about human beings.

Its about an organisation receiving the most horrific abuse (and I see lots in pro-Corbyn Facebook Groups as well) for challenging antisemitism.
I do not think it is an exaggeration to say that at least some of the abuse @JewishLabour receives is because of its name and the fact that to be unapologetically Jewish and challenge antisemitism today makes you a target for abuse in the current climate in @UKLabour.
It's about individuals like @stephjlm_5779, @RuthSmeeth, @mrwtch, @l_attfield and @JoshuaGarfield receiving soul-destroying abuse simply for being Jewish and vocally challenging antisemitism.
It's about people such as @_petermason and others such as @JackEDeakin who face an avalanche of abuse for constantly showing their solidarity with their Jewish brothers and sisters in the fight against antisemitism.
Ultimately it's about human beings targeted for being Jewish and challenging antisemitism.

I cannot even begin to comprehend and imagine the impact on these brave peoples physical and psychological health.
I hope they and @JewishLabour realise every day they stick their head above the parapet of l hate, every time @JewishLabour continues to #BeLouder they inspire people to ensure that we will not remain silent in the face of antisemitism, including #LabourAntisemitism.
If there is anything I can practically do to support you as individuals or @JewishLabour please do let me know.

I will soon be working as a consultant on work related to antisemitism, which I hope can add another dimension to any practical help I may be able to give.
Keep fighting the good fight. I will always have your back. It's imcumbent on all of us to support our fellow human beings in the face of targeted and completely unjustified abuse.

To say nothing lets the bigots win and the sewer they operate grow.
As someone who has a history of depression, if the abuse has an impact on your mental health, get help.

See your GP, take well-being classes and get in touch with excellent organsations like @Rethink_ , @samaritans, JAMI and MIND.

You are not on your own, you have support.
One person who is a champion and does great work for @JewishLabour - @tessmillsy.
