Nelson Mandela Plaque Reinstated in Student Union Building.

Our Education Officer to-be and current BME Students Officer Robiu Salisu hosted an official naming of the Mandela Suite in Union House by reinstating a Nelson Mandela memorial plaque.

The plaque was originally unveiled in 1985 by a representative of the African National Congress in Britain shortly before the Union building was named ‘Mandela House’. It was previously erected to honour Nelson Mandela’s contribution to the struggle for freedom in South Africa. During renovation works the plaque was removed from the Unions wall and was not replaced.

After being recently rediscovered by Robiu the plaque will now take pride of place in the Mandela Suite. On the day the Student Union also erected two collages which were created from Robiu’s 'if you stand for nothing, you'll fall for anything' campaign which was ran during Freshers Week last September. The campaign was ran to promote diversity and equality on the Swansea University campus which saw students holding up a whiteboard with their statement of 'what they stand up for and why'.

After the recent passing of Nelson Mandela the plaque is as important now than what it was in 1985. The official naming of the Mandela Suite will be a celebration of Nelson Mandela’s achievements and the ongoing pursuit of freedom.

Adferiad Llechen Nelson Mandela yn Adeilad Undeb y Myfyrwyr.

Fe wnaeth ein Swyddog Addysg dyfodol a’n Swyddog Myfyrwyr Du a Lleiafrifoedd Ethnig presennol, Robiu Salisu gynnal seremoni enwi swyddogol ar gyfer Ystafell Mandela yn Nhy’r Undeb wrth adfer llechen goffa Nelson Mandela. Cafodd y llechen ei ddadorchuddio yn wreiddiol yn 1985 gan gynrychiolydd o’r Gyngres Genedlaethol Affricanaidd ym Mhrydain yn fyr cyn i adeilad yr Undeb gael ei enwi’n ‘Dy Mandela’. Cafodd ei godi’n flaenorol er anrhydedd i gyfraniad Nelson Mandela at ymdrechion dros rhyddid yn Ne Affrica. Yn ystod gwaith adnewyddu cafodd y llechen ei symud o waliau’r Undeb a ni chafodd ei ailosod. Ar ôl cael ei hailddarganfod yn ddiweddar gan Robiu, mae’r llechen nawr yn cymryd y prif le yn yr Ystafell Mandela. Ar yr un dydd, codwyd dau collage gan Undeb y Myfyrwyr a greuwyd yn seiliedig ar ymgyrch ‘if you stand for nothing, you’ll fall for anything’ Robiu a wnaeth rhedeg yn ystod wythnos y glas mis Medi diwethaf. Rhedwyd yr ymgyrch er mwyn hybu amrywiaeth a chydraddoldeb ar gampws Prifysgol Abertawe, a welodd myfyrwyr yn dal bwrdd gwyn gyda’i datganiad o ‘beth mae’n yn sefyll am, a pham’. Ers marwolaeth diweddar Nelson Mandela, mae’r llechen nawr mor bwysig ag yr oedd yn 1985. Bydd enwi swyddogol yr Ystafell Mandela yn ddathliad o gyflawniadau Nelson Mandela a’r ymchwil cyfredol dros rhyddid.
