The fight against #LabourAntisemitism is the ugliest thing I've ever been involved with.
Its torn me to strips and affected every aspect of my life for 4 years.
To see @jeremycorbyn crushed is bringing me bittersweet joy, but I wont forget.
Those that stood silent, I wont forget.
Those that lied, I wont forget.
Those that tried to crush my voice, I wont forget.
Those that accused me of every evil deed I've lived my life to fight, oh boy I wont forget.
I am not a racist.
To remember is a duty.
It's a duty for every single Jew that was terrified, every single Jew that packed a bag on Dec 12 and every single Jew that felt the cold grip of antisemitism threaten their place in OUR country.
We must stand together, and we must hold those responsible to account.
There will be a lot of people who didn't say a word, or who actively encouraged this poison to rear its head, or who tried to take down voices like ours and this must not be forgotten.
We have to remember who stood by our side as we faced down the devil.
Many people stood up, they are MY heroes. They kept me going when I felt afraid, and I was afraid.
Weather they left @UKLabour or like me they stayed, every person that STOOD UP, genuinely meant #EnoughIsEnough and gave a light has my heart.
There were many people I've argued with, but they have my heart, because they stood by my side in the face of power and held me up so I could be brave.
I love you all.
As we move into the next phase post Corbyn we will need each other.
Until Zionism is defended automatically by those that seek to stand against antisemitism we cannot rest.
We must remember how close it came.
We can't forget how hard it was.
To stand together is to stand stronger.
Our voice mattered because it was so loud.
Much love to the fighters. Much love especially to @GnasherJew, @mishtal, @MLewisLawyer, @RachelRileyRR, @TracyAnnO, @SussexFriends and all the team at @LabourAgainstAS.
There are too many people who have held me aloft to name, but you all have my heart.
