Season’s Greetings from Justice4Sanaz

Justice4Sanaz would like to wish a happy holiday season to all those who have supported the campaign throughout the year. Extra special thanks to our friends at Leeds No Borders, Manchester No Borders, Movement for Justice By Any Means Necessary, Warwick Anti-Sexism Society, Wharf Chambers, and Fighting Against Casualisation in Education.

We hope that our supporters take the time to learn more about the Save Kelechi campaign underway and donate any spare coins to help Kelechi as she battles with the Home Office to remain in the UK. Already the campaign has raised more than £900, but they still need another £1,000 in order to cover Kelechi’s living and legal costs.

As ever, thank you for the love, care and solidarity that you have shown Sanaz. Without your generous and kind help, Sanaz and the campaign would not be able to continue! Wishing all our supporters all the very best for 2016!



About justice4sanaz

For 3 years, Sanaz Raji, a non-EU international student from the United States, has waged a fearless and brave fight against institutional aggression, bullying, and racism from the School of Media and Communication (formerly the Institution of Communications Studies) University of Leeds. The School of Media and Communication took away Sanaz's scholarship in August 2011, only 2 weeks before the start of her third year into her PhD studies. The School of Media and Communication breached their own procedures and rules concerning evaluating student progress. By taking away Sanaz's scholarship, the School of Media and Communication prevented her from continuing her studies in addition to having a decent standard of living with food and shelter that all students expect as a human right. In waging her battle for equal rights for non-EU international students, Sanaz was evicted from her university accommodation in May 2014, threatened with an ASBO (anti-social behavior order) and now fighting against deportation. All non-EU international students should have the right to challenge their universities for their failings without the threat of harassment or deportation. Justice4Sanaz is a movement to redress the failure of the student movement to discuss the myriad of ways that non-EU students, especially those who are people of color, are silenced, bullied and threatened within the neoliberal British university system.
