Lots and lots of Jews4Labour make a giant Jeremy Corbyn mosaic

“We represent a significant number of Jewish people who support the Labour Party and the left wing policies of Jeremy Corbyn, and Jewish people are as badly affected as all other people by this vicious racist cruel Tory government that is punishing the poor and disabled and we all need a Labour government this week.”

Lots of British Jews posting supportive messages for the Labour Party and Jeremy Corbyn have been turned into a giant mosaic of the Labour Party Leader.

The mosaic was made by Jewish Voice for Labour. Co-Chair Leah Levane told The London Economic: “we were getting so fed up with this constant talk about Jews not supporting labour, when we knew that was patently untrue.”

After Jewish actor Miriam Margolyes posted on social media about how she wholeheartedly supported the Labour Party and “Jeremy Corbyn as a lifelong anti-racism campaigner,” many other members often British Jewish community started posting messages of support, Leah Levane explained.

“Miriam Margolyes has always been very clear about supporting Jeremy Corbyn and after lots of people started posting photos of themselves with the hashtag #Jews4Labour, we put a call out and many more started submitting us photos,” she added.

“There is no such thing as the Jewish community or any other community speaking with one voice.

“We represent a significant number of Jewish people who support the Labour Party and the left wing policies of Jeremy Corbyn, and Jewish people are as badly affected as all other people by this vicious racist cruel Tory government that is punishing the poor and disabled and we all need a Labour government this week.”

All those, apart from Noam Chomsky and Naomi Klein, are photos of Jews in Britain expressing their support for Jeremy Corbyn.

Here is a small selection of them:

And Flying Tiger Productions animated the mosaic too:

    Seen the mosaic before and loved it, but the video, is short, sweet and absolutely brilliant!

    A great and lovely thing to do. If there’s one thing we have to learn from this historic disaster, it’s that we must think very hard about how we reach the people who have been misinformed into the middle of the nineteenth century. JVL has been at the very heart of the fight for democracy: as a non-Jew, my deepest thanks to you. If we don’t make democracy a central focus from now on, we and future generations are lost. You know that better than anyone.

    Thanks for voicing my opinion! I’m so disheartened by the response of our communities response to the Labour Party leader. Like him or not he is not Antisemitic and the witch hunt against him has been unbelievable!

  • J’aime JVL Bravo Solidarity.
    Jeremy Corbyn has a Voice For Peace and the Vision For the Many and Concerns For the Few – He Is a Legacy 🙂. O Jeremy Corbyn.
