Liberty must campaign against IHRA

As agreed at our conference on February 13 2021

1. We note that Liberty, formerly the National Council for Civil Liberties, has policy opposing the IHRA.

2.    We also note that the officers and workers at Liberty have refused to take part in any campaigns against the IHRA. In particular their silence over the threats by Gavin Williamson to withdraw funding from universities who unwilling to adopt the IHRA is shameful. We call on Liberty to take a lesson from the United States where its sister organisation, the ACLU, has been vigorous in opposing the imposition by Donald Trump of the IHRA and attempts to outlaw BDS.
