Statement Regarding Trump
Because we are all human...
The Jewish Labour Bund calls on all Jewish organisations to join us in condemning the Trump administration’s executive order on refugees and immigration.
This cruel and divisive policy falsely promises security and prosperity but is already delivering only conflict and suffering.
We should take no comfort that Jews are not targeted. Bitter experience tells us that lines drawn between ‘us’ and ‘them’ are not fixed.
No decent person can just stand by and watch as Trump and his supporters, such as Pauline Hanson’s One Nation here in Australia, work to undermine democratic institutions and sow seeds of division.
Speak out every day when you are with family, friends, or colleagues and stand with those targeted by these policies, not because you are an American, Muslim, or Jew, but because we are all human.
