Go Green joint campaign in Bangor

Here's a report of some activity from a few weekends ago written by a member of Socialist Students.

Bangor Socialist students took part in a go green weekend on Saturday Feb. 22 in conjunction with .Subject to Change (a climate change society), Student Amnesty and the Fairtrade Society.

The day consisted of protests in town with Socialist Students holding a stall campaigning against nuclear power. Despite the bad weather there was some interest from the public, reflected by the sale of four newspapers; a copy of ‘Student Socialist’ and the addition of signatures to the petition. The societies involved in the event later held a discussion regarding issues associated with global warming. Socialist Students spoke about the role democratic planning could play in helping to combat the escalation of global warming. The day also consisted of films educating participants on the reasons and effects of global warming. It is hoped that the societies will work together again in the future to campaign on issues regarding global warming.
