Leicester UCU Officers were appalled to hear of incidents of anti-Chinese racism on campus, targeting students as a result of the spread of Corona virus. We support the statements from both Leicester Students Union and the University Registrar in calling this out as unwelcome at our University and in our city.
Next week is UCU’s week of action against racism and with this year’s theme of ‘Building an anti-racist environment’ we must challenge and fight against all racism on campus. If any UCU members have experienced such racism, we ask that you contact your department rep or one of the branch equality officers.
