Jewish Voice for Peace–NYC calls on Brooklyn Commons to Cancel Event with Antisemitic speaker
Jewish Voice for Peace–New York City is concerned and disappointed by the fact that The Brooklyn Commons is continuing to host an event with Christopher Bollyn, an antisemitic 9/11 truther, despite calls from community members and partner organizations to cancel the event. As a progressive community space, the Brooklyn Commons should not provide a platform for antisemitism. JVP-NYC calls on the Brooklyn Commons to cancel the event.
Jewish Voice for Peace–New York City is a chapter of the national, grassroots organization inspired by Jewish tradition to work for a just and lasting peace according to principles of human rights, equality, and international law for all the people of Israel and Palestine.
