Video: ECAJ Report on Antisemitism in Australia 2020
Each year, ECAJ Research Director Julie Nathan compiles a report on antisemitic incidents and antisemitic discourse in Australia. During the twelve-month period, from 1 October 2019 to 30 September 2020, there were 331 antisemitic incidents logged by the ECAJ, volunteer Community Security Groups (CSGs), and official Jewish state roof bodies. The total figure consists of 188 attacks and 143 threats. “We need not only strong anti-incitement laws but also systematic education programs at schools and universities and responsible messaging from community and political leaders”, Ms Nathan said. “It’s not just a government responsibility. Everyone stands to lose if racism continues to worsen. The responsibility falls on all of us”.
