All I did was sign a letter.
A letter that asked for clarification about academic freedom.
As a result of signing that letter I have been sacked as editor of an academic journal
I have been told, by white men who were in power over me, that this was a matter of my power.
They said that I was not safe.
They said I should be ashamed.
They did not read the letter I signed, or if they did, they misread it.
They have shouted, moralised, pontificated.
I think they should be ashamed.
Ashamed for misreading so egregiously
Ashamed for publicly condemning me.
Ashamed enough to apologise.
