As the Students’ Union we support the right of all students to express their views and to be free from harassment, discrimination and abuse of any kind. We reaffirm the right of all students to stand up against any discrimination they or others experience on the basis of their identity.
In line with the Students’ Union policy on Boycott, Divestments and Sanctions we support students holding events for Israel Apartheid Week and acknowledge that the actions of the Israeli state fall under the United Nations definition of apartheid.
Following the recent email from the Vice-Chancellor at Sussex on ‘respecting different opinions and voices’ we are meeting with him today to discuss the email.
