In Solidarity

UCU North West ‘Stands’ and ‘Kneels’ alongside our black football players.

The racist bile directed to England’s black football players earlier this week has again shone the light on the ongoing racist abuse many black people find themselves subjected to in and out of their place of work. Let’s not also forget our students who may well be on the receiving end of such abhorrent hatred.

Racial trauma is real. We stand in solidarity with Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka.

Get involved, sign the petition:

Ban racists for life from all football matches in England.

UCU colleagues at the Universities of Leicester and Liverpool are on strike; you can find more about it here (Leicester) and here (Liverpool).
