Mrs Tanya Davies MP today signed the London Declaration on Combating Anti-Semitism.
"I am proud to have signed this declaration." Mrs Davies said. "Anti-semitism has no place in our society and it is up to community and political leaders to do everything they can to stamp it out".
The declaration is designed to draw attention to the resurgence of anti-semitism as a negative yet potent force in politics, international affairs and society.
Mrs Davies signed the declaration during a ceremony at NSW Parliament House attended by Jewish Board of Deputies CEO Vic Alhadeff, Minister for Citizenship & Communities Victor Dominello and Chair of the NSW Parliamentary Friends of Israel Gabrielle Upton.
The declaration, first signed in London in 2009, has brought together over 100 parliamentarians and NGO representatives from 35 different countries around the world.
