University of Salford Kurdish Society (USKS)
We are a democratic, secular and progressive Student Union Society at the University of Salford, Manchester. USKS aims to promote Kurdish culture, dance, language, music, movies and political discourse by organising events on regular intervals. It aims to bridge students with Kurdish issues by organising seminars, conferences, presentations by PhD students, journalists, scholars and politicians of the wider Kurdistan region and the world. In this way, we are keen to promote the academic discipline of Kurdish Studies and engage with the larger student community. USKS intends to work closely with other Kurdish Societies around the UK and be the wider cultural hub for the students in Greater Manchester by building fraternal links with other student societies within and outside the campus. Our society welcomes all students irrespective of their religion, race, gender, sexual orientation, class, culture and nationality. We believe in universalism and want to promote it on campus. Each year we will organise traditional and cultural events and celebrations on and off campus and welcome everyone to join in with our fund raising campaign to support the marginalised and displaced people of Kurdistan. We will participate in events organised by other societies at the university. In addition, we will remember Halabja as well as other Kurdish genocides by holding a memorial presentation on campus in March each year. This will allow students and members of the public to get an understanding of the genocides that have taken place (and are still taking place) against the people of Kurdistan.
We promise and are proud to offer cultural events, like the annual Newroz party.
Come and join us. We look forward to welcoming you to the University of Salford, Manchester.
Onward march of student’s unity and human solidarity.
