UNIVERSITIES are not BORDER AGENTS


ethnic cleansing it is on its way, scary how the main three political parties are camping up the migration scare, the Northern League in Italy have started expelling migrants, with climate change leading to more movement of people and elites needing some one to blame, this is going to get a lot worse. So pleased to have been sent this, the plan is of course to turn lecturers into cops. Racism it disgusts me, but we are going to be seeing more of it as a way of deflecting attention.

FREEDOM OF THOUGHT=FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT
STUDENTS are not SUSPECTS
UNIVERSITIES are not BORDER AGENTS

Open public meeting, organised in collaboration with Goldsmiths Student's

Union The Stretch (Student's Union), 5PM, Wednesday 2 December

AGENDA:
The new 'points based' immigration rules represent a serious threat to campus democracy and freedom of speech. They require non-EU students and staff to have biometric ID cards, involve demands on the financial background of applicants and mean that staff are obliged to report students to the UK Border Agency when they have not attended regularly. Come and hear why these new immigration controls are unfair, unwarranted and undemocratic.

Organised in collaboration with Goldsmiths Student's Union.

SPEAKERS: Helena Kennedy QC, Labour Peer and Civil Rights Campaigner
Manick Govinda, Head of artists' advisory services, Arts admin, and initiator of the campaign against visa restrictions for artists
Tom Hickey, National Executive, University College Union (UCU)
James Haywood, National Executive, National Union of Students (NUS)

All welcome.
