Board of Deputies congratulates Shakira Martin on NUS election

President Jonathan Arkush and Vice President Marie van der Zyl congratulated Shakira Martin on her election as President of the National Union of Students.

They said: “For the last year, Malia Bouattia has made the NUS a hostile place for Jewish students and it is welcome that students of all faiths across the country have chosen to reject divisive and bigoted attitudes in favour of a welcoming environment for all. We applaud the outstanding work of the Union of Jewish Students, who have shown no let up throughout this difficult year and demonstrated firm determination to make the NUS the space it should be for Jewish students.”
