About Luma Haddad

Luma Haddad is a student at UC Berkeley.

The UC Student Association should be applauded for opposing all racism

Without threats, intimidation and emotional diversions, UCSA representatives chose to take a stand for free speech and the right to criticize any state political actor with no special exceptions. They strongly supported the bill because its merits are, simply put, very difficult not to embrace. The UCSA understands that speech critical of Israel is legitimate and valid. If you understand that speaking out against Iran’s treatment of its people is not Islamophobic, or that voicing disagreement with China over Tibet is not anti-Chinese racism, then you know HR 35 is absurd, exceptionalist and actually quite dangerous.
