The Board of Deputies stands in solidarity with American Jewish organisations and others taking a stand against the racist “Unite the Right” march in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Board of Deputies Senior Vice President Richard Verber said: “How can it be that in twenty-first century America, you have extremists openly chanting racist and antisemitic slogans, and mowing down peaceful protesters in car-ramming attacks of the sort we have seen recently in London? We express our solidarity with the victims of violence and echo the calls of our American counterparts for unequivocal condemnation of this violence”
