Bath Students for Justice in Palestine

The Bath Students for Justice in Palestine’s Facebook page contains links to a poem by Rafeef Ziadah, and a statement by War on Want.[1] Rafeef Ziadah is the Senior Campaigns Officer (Militarism and Security) for War on Want, an organisation criticised by NGO Monitor for using “anti-Semitic themes to attack Israel” and taking “a one-sided approach to the conflict, which ignores Palestinian terrorism.”[2] [3] War on Want also helped to organise a 2009 tour of British universities that featured Bongani Masuku, who has been found guilty of hate speech by the South African Human Rights Commission.[4]  Furthermore, at an event at UCL in 2012, Ms. Ziadah spoke in support of Khader Adnan, a member of Islamic Jihad who has been filmed inciting killing of Jews.[5]

 

Nick Griffin

In 2007, BNP leader Nick Griffin was invited to speak at Bath, but subsequently prevented from doing so after pressure from the Student Union as well as external anti-fascist groups and local trade unions.[6]
