A film I produced for Students Not Suspects



PREVENT has long been criticised as fundamentally racist and Islamophobic, targeting the Muslim community whilst eroding civil liberties for all as part of a clampdown on political dissent.

An increasing number of unions and organisations have also been calling for the repeal and/or overhauling of PREVENT - including the National Union of Students (NUS), National Union of Teachers (NUT), Universities and Colleges Union (UCU) and a wide range of civil liberties and Muslim organisations.
