A PROTEST inspired by a Hollywood movie has seen three billboards accusing Jeremy Corbyn of âharbouring Holocaust deniersâ driven through London this morning.
Inspired by the film âThree billboards outside Ebbing, Missouriâ, a group protesting anti-Semitism has crowd-funded the money for the travelling displays.
They will drive past the Labour Partyâs headquarters on a journey round the capital ahead of a debate on the issue in Parliament later today.
A crisis over Mr Corbynâs handling of anti-Jewish hatred has engulfed the party in recent weeks, with anger from religious groups and MPs.
Organised by the Community United against Labour Party antisemitism â known as Culpa â they raised more than their target of Â£4,5000 for the billboards.
They say on them âHolocaust deniers harboured by Labourâ, âFailure to act on antisemitismâ, and âInstitutional antisemitism in Corbynâs Labourâ.
A spokesperson for the group said the billboards âwill remind Labour and the world how much remains to be done to tackle antisemitism in the Labour Party.
Jonathan Hoffman from Culpa said âThis is a grassroots action borne of intense frustration at the lack of action by Jeremy Corbyn.
âThere is no indication that he takes antisemitism seriously. No recognition that for Jews antisemitism is not just a matter of bad behaviour, it is a matter of survival.
âIf he is unwilling or unable to deliver on the fight against antisemitism, then Labour must find someone who can.â
He said while the idea had come from âa group of Labour members and ex membersâ the people who donated to the initiative are from all different religions and across the political spectrum.
The concept comes from the plot of the Oscar-winning film, in which Frances McDormandâs character places three adverts on the edge of her town to call attention to her daughterâs unsolved murder.
Last month the âJustice 4 Grenfellâ group organised a similar protest featuring mobile billboards asking why no arrests had been made despite 71 people dying in the West London tower block fire last year.
