UK - ‘(((Zionist)))’ graffiti in Bethnal Green

- Antisemitic graffiti has been reported to police after appearing on a property in Bethnal Green.

The local authority has been asked to clear up the vandalism, after the term “(((Zionists hivemin))” was daubed on Wednesday.

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said: “On the afternoon of Wednesday, 27 October police were made aware of antisemitic graffiti on a residential property in Durant Street, E2.

Triple brackets, known as an ‘echo’, are commonly used by members of the far-right and alt-right on the internet to identify Jewish writers and public figures.

“Hivemin”, daubed on the wall with an incorrect spelling, refers to the term ‘hive mind’, meaning a ‘collective consciousness’ or group think.
