Following a successful talk given at This is Not a Gateway festival in November 2014 and in December 2014 at the University of Exeter, taking a cue from Willie Nelson, Justice4Sanaz will be “On the Road Again”. The Justice4Sanaz University Tour will cover not only about Sanaz’s case and campaign, but also about how the rampant neoliberalisation of higher education has further marginalised non-EU international students and people of colour. Additionally, how universities are complicit in acting in line with xenophobic, racist immigration policy while at the same time casting a colonial divide and rule strategy that pits British students against non-EU students. This talk will also confront the myopic nature of the British student movement when it comes to race, class, gender, sexuality, disability, and citizenship, especially when it comes to BME and non-EU international students.
Additionally, the Justice4Sanaz University Tour will be collecting donations to help with putting together a fresh application to the Home Office and with Sanaz’s day-to-day living costs.
