Explanation

Generation Identity and National Action have put up posters saying 'Hitler was right' and 'Enoch was right', admiring the racism those two figures preached. As a diverse university we need to show our support for every student regardless of race, religion, class or sexuality.

After the repetitive neo-Nazis 'attacks' on campus the union should be promoting an Anti-Racist culture. The advertisement boards flick through several 'slides', I suggest one of those slides is the Stand Up To Racism poster which says 'Kick Racism off our Campus'.

Status

The Union should have an Anti-Racist poster on the SU advertisement boards

This Idea for Change was passed to the Student Change team for action:

  • 22 Jan 2019: Posters went up on the Social Space noticeboard, and copies of the posters were sent to Marketing to go up on the digital signage and advertising boards in the Students' Union. We expect to provide further updates before 13 Feb 2019. 
  • 14 Feb 2019: Posters are now on rotation across the SubTV and Redbus screens around the SU.

This Idea is complete. There will be no further updates on this Idea.

5:34pm on 28 Nov 18 What does being anti-racist have to do with being a member of the far right? Surely it's just a way of being a decent human?
