State repression and violence is fuelling racism and resulting in deaths on the streets. The impact of the Counter Terrorism and Security Act is normalising Islamophobia and forcing public servants to act as informants. Students taking action are threatened with dismissal, arrest and huge court costs.
How can we counter this growing surveillance culture, the presence of police on our campuses and racism and repression in our communities?
This event is for anyone interested in resisting the impact of the Prevent duty, the curbing of our right to protest, police violence and deaths in custody. The speeches and workshops aim to equip students and activists with the knowledge and networks to take these campaigns on locally.
Organised by the National Union of Students (NUS), the Black Students Campaign, Defend the Right to Protest (DtRtP), Federation of Student Islamic Societies (FOSIS) and the University and College Union (UCU).
