It is an exciting time for pupils, students and parents as schools reopen for learning across the country.
Muslim parents will also have concerns around the implementation of Prevent, the RSE curriculum and how schools will respect their faith values.
Last year, as many expressed their solidarity with the plight of Palestinians across our society, we witnessed an attempt to censor pupils, students and sometimes teachers, using a range of measures such as banning Palestinian colours at school, referring pupils to Prevent or even suspending students for wearing a badge. This will likely resurface following a fresh onslaught on Gaza over the summer break.
CAGE is organising a public event to give parents, pupils and students all the tools they need to express their values and solidarity with Palestine in such a hostile environment.
We will highlight:
- The key successes from CAGE’s legal challenge over right to support Palestine in schools
- The findings from our recent report: “Repression of Palestine Solidarity in Schools”
- First hand accounts from those censored for raising Palestione at school
- Revalations from our survey about the difference in treatment between Ukraine and Palestine solidarity in UK Schools
- Know Your Rights
Join our lawyer Fahad Ansari, Doctor and student Palestine activist Yahya Abu-Seido and CAGE’s outreach director Moazzam Begg on Saturday 24th September from 6:30pm at East London.
