Statement on students' protest in north London cafe

2 February 2018

All of us at SOAS continue to condemn in the strongest possible terms the personal and prejudiced attacks that have been levelled at SOAS students for engaging in their right to protest non-violently and to speak their minds. The level of abuse and harassment these students have received is totally unacceptable and has no place in a democratic society. Whether one agrees with the views expressed or not, it is especially unacceptable to bring people’s racial identity and personal life into any form of public discussion
