Last week I was contacted by a number of students who raised concerns about planned segregation at an event featuring a man named Hamza Tzortzis at the University College London (UCL).

My organisation, Student Rights, published an opinion piece by a student present at the event which highlights the complicity of the university in enforcing such a policy, and the story has also made national news.
