The Young Liberal Movement is concerned about the Young Greens’ radical opposition to Jewish Students on campuses across Australia.

The Young Greens have a long history of violent protests against Israel, including taking part in the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign which saw violence in front of Israeli-linked businesses like Max Brenner.

“This totalitarian approach from the Young Greens against young Jewish people must be condemned. Their complete intolerance to anyone that doesn’t share their world view is dangerous,” Federal Vice President Josh Manuatu said.

“The Young Liberal Movement is unashamedly a strong supporter of Israel – the only free and democratic nation in the Middle East – and has been a long-time supporter of the Australian Union of Jewish Students.”

“The Young Greens lack of preparedness to even engage with young Jewish Australians demonstrates just how radical and devoid of reality their Movement has become as a result of only reading Red Flag and listening to Lee Rhiannon on repeat,” Mr Manuatu concluded.
