Memes calling for decolonization have appearedÂ around campus in the last two weeks.
The womenâ€™s bathroom, the KCLSU notice board, and Reggie the lion makeÂ no exception. Indeed, it is difficult to walk around campus and not come across the infamous meme.
The memes mock Professor Ed Byrne, Principal of Kingâ€™s College London, for addressing Israeli Apartheid week as “abhorrent“.
Israeli Apartheid Week (March 18th â€“ April 8th) has reached its fifteenth year and will be operating under the theme â€˜Stop Arming Colonialismâ€™.
Societies such as KCL Action Palestine andÂ the newly formed Decolonize KCL have publicly endorsedÂ the memes on social media. When inquired on this matter, Decolonize KCL denied any affiliation with the memes.
