Earlier this week we reported on a group of protesters storming a Churchill themed cafe in North London, claiming that it was promoting “colonialism” and “institutional racism”. Yer seriously, this actually happened. One of our writers has already addressed at some length why this is utter lunacy.
It’s since been revealed that one of the protesters was Halimo Hussain, Co-President for equality and liberation on the student union at SOAS, that is the School of Oriental and Africal Studies in London.
Well SOAS Students Union has now released a statement in support of Halimo Hussain, describing Churchill as a ‘war criminal’ and claiming that the cafe ‘celebrated British colonialism’ (see below). Even by SOAS standards we think this is pretty impressive.
