Hi all! As co-campaigns officers for this year, we’ll aim to facilitate activism on campus. We hope to provide logistical support to anyone wanting to put together an event, direct action or mobilise around a specific issue. Introducing new students to existing campaigns and widening the organizing network within SOAS and between universities is also one of our priorities. We want activist spaces to be inclusive and driven by people who are often excluded from them or spoken for, that is people of colour, LGBTQ+ folks and students with disabilities. This is crucial to keep control of our narratives, and ensure that our political engagement is not a mere facade to the benefit of the university. We are sure you share some of these goals and we’re looking forward to working with you all!
