    Statement on suspension of Labour candidate for Cazenove by-election

    It has been publicly reported that the Labour Party has suspended Laura Pascal, its candidate for the Cazenove by-election, and ceased all campaigning for her. We call on the Labour Party to confirm whether this is the case, and if so the reasons for it.

     

    We and others in the community had previously raised serious concerns about grossly offensive and prejudiced comments shared and ‘liked’ by Laura Pascal on Twitter/X. Calls for Hackney Labour to address these concerns, and to explain why Pascal was selected as a candidate in the first place, have been and continue to be met with silence.

     

    Tamara Micner, Green Party candidate for Cazenove, said: “I stand wholeheartedly with all communities in Hackney, whose diversity is our borough’s great strength. My aim in this by-election campaign has always been to bring the people of Cazenove together and help heal divisions.

     

    “If elected as your Green councillor on Thursday 18th, I will stand up for all Cazenove residents and add to the fantastic work that Hackney Green councillors are already doing to hold the Labour administration to account and make Hackney a safe community for everyone”.

  • Tamara Micner selected as Green Party candidate for Cazenove

    Hackney Green Party has selected Tamara Micner for the by-election taking place in Cazenove ward on 18 January 2024.

    Tamara is a Yiddish teacher, playwright and performer who has lived in Hackney for more than 10 years. As a campaigner, she has been involved in London Renters' Union, Extinction Rebellion Jews, Extinction Rebellion Hackney, Campaign Against Arms Trade, Jewish Socialists' Group and others. She is a member and former trustee of Kehillah North London Synagogue in Stoke Newington, where she co-leads the Racial Justice Group, and is also an enthusiastic walker in Hackney's green spaces.
    Tamara's priorities for Hackney include more affordable housing, ending the cost-of-living crisis, affordable and sustainable energy, stronger workers' rights, and ending oppressions such as sexism, racism, antisemitism and classism. Like the Green Party, she believes social justice and climate justice are intertwined.
    She says: "If elected, I would work to bridge divisions and inequalities in our communities, improve everyone's standard of living, and hold the Labour Party to account in Hackney Council."

    Hackney Green councillors Alastair Binnie-Lubbock (Hackney Downs) and Zoë Garbett (Dalston) commented: “We are delighted to have Tamara standing to represent the community in Cazenove. As Hackney’s real opposition party, we work hard to make the Council listen to residents’ voices. We can’t wait to work with Tamara for a fairer, greener Hackney.”


    תּמרה מיצנער איז אַ ייִדיש־לערערין און אַ שרײַבערין און אַקטריסע אין טעאַטער. זי װױנט אין האַקני שױן 10 יאָר, און שטאַמט פֿון קאַנאַדע.

    זי האָט אָנטײלגענומען אױף אַקציעס מיט פֿאַרשידענע גרופּעס, צום בײַשפּיל, מיט דער גרופּע פֿון ײדישע סאָציאַליסטן און מיט דער קאַמפּאַניע אַנטקעגן כּלי־זײן. זי געהערט זיך צו דער ליבעראַלער שיל „קהילה‟, אין סטאָק ניויִנגטאָן. 

    זי װיל אַז אַלע אין האַקני זאָלן האָבן ביליקערע באַהױזונג און ענערגיע, און אַז עס זאָל מער נישט זײַן קײן אַנטיסעמיטיזם. 

    זי זאָגט׃ „אױב איך װעל װערן אַ ראַדניקע, װעל איך קעמפֿן פֿאַר די אַלע אײַנװױנערס אין קאַזינאָװ, און די ייִדישע קהילות דערין‟.
