Following this interview, Sheffield Hallam UCU voted by 97% to support Shahd’s emergency motion supporting her and demanding a public apology from the university, an end to the investigation and for a moratorium on the use of the IHRA definition.

Before you go

Counterfire is growing faster than ever before

We need to raise £20,000 as we are having to expand operations. We are moving to a bigger, better central office, upping our print run and distribution, buying a new printer, new computers and employing more staff.

Please give generously.
