As you can imagine, the horrific murder of 50 innocent Muslims (including children as young as 2) has left many communities across the world in shock. With the unity and support of other student communities like yourselves, we will be able to fight the rampant racism, prejudice and bigotry that has increasingly become prevalent these past few years. 

I would like to ask SU council to unite and as a representative body and pass a motion for the SU to denounce these happenings and raise awareness on these issues as they do with other minority groups.

Thank you
