SCM Great Britain Statement of Solidarity

August 16th, 2012 12:26 pm

SCM Great Britain has released a statement of solidarity with the National Sikh Students Alliance and the Sikh community:

We wholeheartedly condemn the horrific attack that took place on the 5th August at the Sikh temple in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We send our sympathy and solidarity to the Sikh community, both in Wisconsin and across the world, at this difficult time.

The student movement stands in solidarity with all victims of racism and far right aggression. We recognise the need to challenge and oppose racists and neo-Nazis, both in words and on the streets. We also struggle against the poverty, inequality and alienation that help fuel racist and far right ideas.

We reaffirm our solidarity with the Sikh community and our commitment to working with them to try and prevent atrocities like the attack in Milwaukee from ever taking place again.

A joint statement by the National Union of Students, UJS, FOSIS, NHSF and SCM, standing in solidarity with the National Sikh Students Alliance and the wider Sikh Community.

The statement can be found here. Find out more about SCM Great Britain on their website.
