Student Left Network National Conference 2-3 March 2019 - Sheffield
Marketisation is wrecking campus living, learning and working conditions. Senior management are on ever-inflating six figure salaries while students and workers bear the brunt of cuts - and a new wave of job losses and course closures have just been announced. In FE, the picture is even worse. Meanwhile hate crime rates are rising on campus and the far right is growing, bolstered by the anti-migrant rhetoric surrounding Brexit.
While all this is going on, the NUS leadership is preparing to gut its democratic structures, giving unelected SU CEOs and NUS staff unchecked control over implementing a programme of still undefined cuts to our National Union’s democracy, campaigning and liberation.
We can't fight these issues in isolation - that's why students from campuses across the UK will be gathering to coordinate action on a national and regional scale, share activist and campaigning skills and debate and discuss political ideas.
Come and meet students from campuses across the UK and get involved in coordinating student left activism for the coming year. There will be workshops, discussions, debates and votes on motions as well as caucus meetings for liberation groups (and socials). We will also elect a National Committee to coordinate things for the coming year.
Open to all, but to participate in democratic decision-making sessions (elections, caucuses, debates and submitting and voting on motions) you will need to be a member.
