Socialist Students beat NUS leadership!!!

In Bangor Student Union referendum!

After a hard week of campaigning by Socialist Students and other supporters of the Camapign to Defeat Fees, our hard work clearly paid off when 271 students voted YES to supporting the Campaign to Defeat Fees, whilst the no campaign only received a 104 votes, a clear majority supporting our clear policies of opposing ever increasing stduent debt and fees as well as our strategy of the need for a mass camapign to be built. A longer report will follow...

So if anyone's wondered why i've not posted not for the last week, as you can see I was otherwise occupied - and I certainly think I spent my time profitably.

Marvelous work comrade, Wes came down to Notts Trent to bully the bureaucracy into opposing the CDF motion (after most of them supported the CDF during their election campaigns - one of these liars is now the union president, worse luck) and despite the bureaucracy unanimously siding with their New Labour buddy over a quarter of the AGM voted for the motion. It just goes to show you should never trust a careerist!

Well done comrades, hopefully more unions will come out against fees before the 2009 review.
