UT Austin JNU Teach-in

University of Texas at Austin students and faculty stand in solidarity with the protests in JNU. We condemn the institutionally motivated murder of Rohith Vemula, and the injustices faced by students like Kanhaiya Kumar and Umar Khalid. We believe that university campuses should be a non-militarized space, and coexistence of different ideologies should not only be seen as an exercise of one’s fundamental right but also encouraged to accommodate various voices that are often stifled in everyday social and political life. We strongly condemn the criminalization of difference on campuses and ways in which students are being witch-hunted by the authories. To our fellow comrades in India, we stand with you in your resistance against this state sponsored violence. #UTstandswithJNU

Snehal Shingavi, Associate Professor with the English Department at UT
Ramna Walia- JNU alum and PhD student with the Radio, Film, and Television department at UT
