A spokesperson for the Board of Deputies of British Jews said: “We strongly condemn the offensive and unacceptable plan for a demonstration in Golders Green by a group of far-right nationalists who are clearly intent on making a provocative, explicitly antisemitic gesture.

The Jewish community has every right to express its opposition to this demonstration. A number of organisations and representatives of the Jewish community may be present and we trust that the police will do their utmost to ensure the security of any of those counter-protesting.

We have already made firm representations to the Home Secretary and the Metropolitan Police and look to them to  prevent it happening or to move its location within the limits of the law.  We will keep the community fully informed of developments.”
