“Snowflakes – Thousands Of Them!”: Activists Call for Classic Film ZULU To Be BANNED
It’s no secret that the classic British war film Zulu has been ruffling the feathers of the politically correct for decades. Particularly in academia – the official home of snowflakes – Cy Enfield’s immensely popular film has long been regarded as a racist, politically incorrect, imperialist mess. One academic even outlandishly blamed the film for the racial abuse of West Indian children in Britain during the 1960s.
This whole debate has resurfaced this week after 28 busybody activists demanded that the Silver Screen Cinema in Folkestone cancel their charity showing of the 1964 film. The cinema had planned to hold a showing of the film to raise money for the charity SSAFA – an armed forces charity that supporters Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and their Families, as per the letters in their name – but 28 activists wrote to Folkestone Mayor Ann Berry arguing that the film would somehow negatively affect race relations amongst the ‘richly diverse communities’ in Folkestone.
Cllr Berry, the town’s mayor, commented that:
“It’s just a film with a poetic licence, I’ve seen it many times and I don’t see the colour of people’s skin, I see a war between two countries”

As of writing over 13,000 people have voted on Kent Online’s poll asking if the film should still be shown in 2018; 92% of respondents said that it should still be shown. At present, the event is still due to take place on the 30th of June with tickets available to purchase HERE. In response to this story, the UKIP society at the University of Kent has announced their intention to hold a screening of the film on campus to defy the 28 protesters.
