UK: antisemitic, white supremacist slogans at Warwick University party

972 has reported that antisemitic and white supremacist slogans were visible on students’ t-shirts at an off-campus event in Exeter, attended by University of Exeter students. The University of Exeter is one of the UK’s top institutions. A social event of the Snow Sports society at the Timepiece nightclub on Tuesday night saw various students with white t-shirts, which they and other students wrote on. One slogan written on a t-shirt read “The Holocaust was a good time”. Another read “Don’t speak to me if you’re not white”.
There were also two students with Swastikas on their t-shirts. Lauren Fry, head of the Snow Sports Society commented: “Comments like these are not tolerated within our club,” she said. “Unfortunately, as only eight committee members, we can not be responsible for everything written by other students, especially when there is over 1,000 people. Timepiece were asking people to leave or change if they were seen in the venue with any abusive slogans on their t- shirts. As far as I’m aware no complaints were made. We apologise if we offended any one and we feel appropriate action was taken on the night to deal with these type of slogans if they were seen on anyone at our social. Snowsports has a zero tolerance policy for these actions and we will be contacting our members in due course to express this”
