Take a Stand Against Antisemitic Hate and #SayNoToDurbanIV

August 3, 2021 | Ended

Two decades after the World Conference Against Racism in Durban, South Africa, which infamously turned into an antisemitic hatefest with long-lasting harmful consequences in the human rights field, the International Legal Forum (ILF) has launched the #SayNoToDurbanIV campaign, urging countries to withdraw from the UN's upcoming anniversary event.

Two decades after the World Conference Against Racism in Durban, South Africa, which infamously turned into an antisemitic hatefest with long-lasting harmful consequences in the human rights field, the International Legal Forum (ILF) has launched the #SayNoToDurbanIV campaign, urging countries to withdraw from the UN’s upcoming anniversary event.

While the 2001 Durban conference was meant to bring the international community together to present a global front in the fight against racism, it instead descended into an unhinged display of Jew-hatred, giving birth to the modern BDS movement and the pervasive discourse and vilification of Israel we see around the world today.

On September 22nd, world leaders will come together at the UN headquarters in New York to celebrate the Durban anniversary. However, ten countries — the US, UK, Czech Republic, Netherlands, Canada, Australia, Hungary, Austria, Germany, and Israel — have so far announced they will not attend the event, and all other countries that truly care about fighting racism and promoting tolerance should follow suit.

As part of its campaign to expose the antisemitic Durban ideology, the ILF is calling on all good people of conscience to share the below video:

#SayNoToDurbanIV and show that TOGETHER we can make a difference!
