University of KwaZulu-Natal

Open letter to all COMSA members from Fazel Khan

In 2007 Fazel Khan was fired from the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) in Durban, South Africa, after leading a long strike the previous year for workers' rights, student rights and academic freedom. In this letter to his union he makes a case for a democratic university and, against the extraordinary authoritarianism of much of the South African left, a non-authoritarian radicalism.
