In a now-deleted video, members of KCL Action Palestine said several security guards confirmed students were being profiled and names were given to the police.
Such a privilege to welcome Her Majesty The Queen and HRH The Duchess of Cambridge to King’s for the official opening of Bush House! @RoyalFamily @KensingtonRoyal #LifeAtKings pic.twitter.com/AQLMbTjLp6— King's College London (@KingsCollegeLon) 19 March 2019
In the days following the Queen's visit, King's students protested outside of the Strand campus. Speakers called the university 'disgusting' for clamping down on the society KCL Action Palestine. TNS asked members whether anyone from the activist societies was willing to speak to us, they declined and referred us to the online statement. Earlier this month, KCL's Action Palestine released a statement stating that the Israel Society racially profiled students and cancelled multiple tickets to their event. However, KCL Israel Society denied claims that they racially profiled ticket holders. More to follow.
Absolutely disgusted that KCL politically profiled students and blocked their ID cards, preventing them from entering the university purely because the Queen is visiting. @kclsu what are you doing to protect students?— KCL Action Palestine (@KCLAP) March 19, 2019
