We support students' rights to protest peacefully about issues that matter to them.
Current immigration policies make international students feel unwelcome in our country and watched on our campuses.
Luqman has been an important part of the Sussex student community for a number of years, being a catalyst for numerous inspiring events with Black History Month, and campaigns with I Too Am Sussex and the movement to Decolonise the Curriculum.
We support students' calls for Luqman to be allowed to remain in this country as we fear that if he is forced to return to Nigeria he will be unable to access the vital health care he needs.
The Students’ Union Executive and Students’ Union Council voted earlier this year to oppose the PREVENT agenda referred to by protesters. Universities are places for education, not surveillance.
We fully support the protesters’ call to convert the the University’s 50 fee scholarships for refugees into full scholarships including living support and the demand for a decolonized education.
Elected officers will be meeting University officials to advocate on Luqman's behalf.
