Statement on hate incident on campus

Stickers featuring Nazi imagery have been found on campus. We condemn this action in the strongest terms and reiterate the importance of inclusivity and opposing discrimination that students have long supported at Sussex.

Holocaust Memorial Day was marked internationally last week and will take place on campus on Wednesday 8 February. Incidents like this show the need to remain vigilant and oppose anti-Semitism and discrimination.

The Students’ Union is committed to providing an inclusive and supportive environment where everyone is treated equally and with respect. We will not tolerate any form of discrimination including harassment and bullying. We want to ensure students feel welcome and safe on campus.

We’ve reached out to the Jewish society and any students affected can contact Adèle Duvillier, Activities Officer - activities@sussexstudent.com
