Islamophobic posters found on Manchester campus
The posters were found in SU
Racist posters containing strong anti-Islamic images have been spotted at Manchester uni.
The poster shows images of women in burqas and protestors from far right group, Generation Identity. Over the images are superimposed a series of questions: "Against mass immigration? Want to protect free speech? Love your English identity?"
Generation Identity are an "International Identitarian movement" that fights for "ethnopluralism," a hypothetical far right concept involving ethnical segregation.
Far right Generation Identity have been putting up these #racist posters at Uni of #Manchester. This group associates with #fascists & #NeoNazis. Don’t let their hate go unopposed. Join the protest organised by students at 1pm on Wednesday: https://t.co/NT1MAH88Bc @ManchesterSU pic.twitter.com/X6PDj7gncu

Stand Up to Racism, an organisation that campaigns against all forms of racism, Islamophobia and antisemitism, published a tweet this week denouncing a racist poster found in the Students' Union.
Further tweets show the same poster has been seen at multiple spots around campus.
One user praised Stand up to Racism's tweet and commented: "You should be treating this poster the same way you would a Swastika".
Further to the GI stickers found at Manchester's campus this week, I have found and taken down two at Salford U's. Security have been informed. Please keep vigilant against this neo-nazi org. pic.twitter.com/C1BTJYT8pL
