On the 11th February 2014, just a day after Kingston University Student Union passed a motion of solidarity with Justice4Sanaz, Mostafa Rajaai, the Culture and Diversity Officer at SUARTS, informed me that the University of the Arts London also passed a motion of solidarity in their student union as well! This makes the University of the Arts London the 9th student union, and the 5th inside London, following in the footsteps of King’s College London, Royal Holloway and SOAS to provide solidarity and support this this campaign.
During the Justice4Sanaz University Tour, students at the University of Nottingham and the University of Manchester expressed a strong interest in getting motions of solidarity passed in their respective student unions. I am pleased to see that via J4S, a conversation has started concerning the plight of both postgraduate and non-EU students of color within British higher education.
The J4S has been invited next month to give a talk at Oxford Brooks University UNISON event on the 3rd March concerning Women’s Rights in the Higher Education. Following that, the campaign has been invited by Defend Education Oxford to speak on the 4th March. Additionally, SOAS Student Union has invited Justice4Sanaz to speak on campus on the 19th March.
