Say No to Anti-Semitism Rally 2015

Around 2,500 people gathered in Manchester for a rally against a surge in Anti-Semitism. The event in Cathedral Gardens was set up following a recent spike in attacks on Jews following renewed violence in Israel and Gaza.

Police officers were on hand but the event passed off peacefully.

The latest figures – compiled by the Community Security Trust – revealed there were 52 anti-Semitic attacks across the region in July, mostly concentrated in Salford, Bury and Manchester.

That figure compares to 96 in the whole of the previous six months and is a 300 per cent increase on July the previous year, when there were 13 incidents.
