Action Against Antisemitism Update Live Protest Oct 14

Take Action Against Antisemitism

Your support is making a difference, spread the word and double your impact!

TImageThank you again for your support in the campaign demanding Facebook do more to stop the spread antisemitism and Holocaust denial. This update lets you know how we are doing, and we hope you will pass it on to othersto help grow the campaign.

So far our online petition has 355 supporters (including you of course!) we need another 1,145 supporters to reach our target and we have 10 days in which to make that happen.

The protest outside Facebook’s offices (where this petition will be given to Facebook) will take place on the 14th of October, so it’s important we reach or exceed out goal before then. This is not just an online petition, it’s a statement demanding realistic change which will be brought home to Facebook in the real world. So far over 350 people have said they are attending the protest.

With your support we can find the 1,145 remaining signatures before time runs out. If we can’t find a total of 1,500 people willing to take a stand against antisemitism and Holocaust denial… that’s a rather scary thought. Please help us by sharing this e-mail and letting others know about this campaign whatever way you can. Some further details are below.
