Decolonise Uom

   

WHO WE ARE…

Decolonise UoM is a collective of staff and students at the University of Manchester who, through political education and building collective power, aim to reimagine and build a democratic, liberated and free education for all. 

 

WHAT WE DO…

•    We advocate for justice by dismantling the racist, ableist, transphobic, homophobic, sexist structures of the University. 
•    We advocate for divestment from companies and institutions that are complicit in the decimation of our planet and human lives. 
•    We advocate for the reformation of university governance so that is in the hands of staff and students. 
•    We advocate for an end to the hostile, racist and xenophobic environment infringing on our campus. 
•    We advocate for a decolonised curriculum that not only diversifies our reading lists but is actively critical of the colonial thought processes implicit in the fabric of our education.
•     We advocate for a free education that values education as a human right rather than a consumer good.
