Black Academic Caucus statement in response to disruption of Senate
Released: 10h00, 10 November 2015

The Black Academic Caucus at UCT (BAC) strongly condemns the acts of violence that transpired during Monday's, 9th November, special Senate meeting. Those in attendance were subjected to humiliating, disrespectful, and unruly behaviour by individuals who disrupted the session. In addition, allowing those external to the university to participate in the aggressive disruption of a university process sets a worrying precedent. Such acts are not reflective of the kinds of political action that we can support; they compromise the progress made during the past year of civic action at UCT and now across the country. It is imperative that the goals towards transformation be democratic and free of all forms of coercion and intimidation.
