Hundreds to protest Holocaust denier at Oxford Union

Oxford University's Jewish and Muslim societies are among the student groups joining together Monday to demonstrate against the appearances of a historian that denies the Holocaust took place and a far-right political party leader. Hundreds were expected to protest the arrival of author David Irving and British National Party leader Nick Griffin, who are appearing at a free speech forum Monday at the Oxford Union, the university's debating society. Several students' groups, including the Oxford Student Union and the university's Jewish and Muslim societies, have teamed up with Unite Against Fascism to organize the protest. "It's our way of showing that we all stand together... opposed to racism, opposed to hate," said Steven Altmann Richer, the co-president of the Oxford University Jewish Society.
