The Metropolitan police said on Tuesday that Bahar Mustafa, 28, will appear at Bromley magistrates' court on 5 November.

Mustafa, from north London, is the welfare and diversity officer at Goldsmiths University student union in south London, and has been criticised via social media and in national media coverage for allegedly holding an anti-racism event where white men were asked not to attend.

A spokesperson for Goldsmiths University told BuzzFeed News that it would be "inappropriate" for the university to comment on an active police matter.
