COMBAT ANTISEMITISM IN ALL ITS FORMS, WHEREVER IT APPEARS. ADOPT, PROMOTE AND IMPLEMENT THE FULL INTERNATIONAL HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE ALLIANCE WORKING DEFINITION OF ANTISEMITISM.

 
 

Hate crime and hate incidents have been consistently on the rise in recent years, and Scotland is no exception. Between 2016 and 2020, the number of antisemitic incidents recorded by the CST in Scotland doubled and is now the highest it has ever been.

 

We ask Scottish politicians to stand with us in solidarity will those communities that face hatred, including the anti-Muslim hatred, anti-black racism, and sectarianism that persist in our society.

 

Much of this is attributable to an increase in online hatred. We look to governments to enact and implement legislation to tackle the challenge of online harms.

 

We call on the Scottish Government to bear down on hatred and prejudice through robust and enforceable laws. The new Hate Crime Bill must be fully implemented and kept under review.

 

We are grateful to the Scottish Government and the political parties who have adopted the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) working definition on antisemitism, as this helps identify and tackle anti-Jewish racism. We urge parties to continue to promote and implement it with local authorities, educational institutions, and other key parts of society.
