Defend Nita Sanghera

Add your name

We utterly condemn the racist abuse by white supremacist group ‘Generation Identity’ towards UCU Vice President Nita Sanghera.

Nita has campaigned tirelessly up and down the country alongside Stand Up to Racism to keep racism and the far right off our university and college campuses. She has stood up against ‘alt-right’ organisations such as Generation Identity who have attempted to spread racist and nazi propaganda at our educational institutions.

We admire and commend all those who stand up against the far right and we will not accept any such attacks on the first black woman Vice President of our union.
