Student Broad Left is proud to be supporting left wing, anti-austerity student activists for the NUS elections which are taking place at National Conference in April 2014.
We believe NUS needs a new direction and a new leadership. The current NUS leadership is not in favour of opposing the massive attacks on students. Only the left is offering a way forward – for a fighting NUS that actively defends students against cuts, fees and attacks on our living standards.
A campaign involving thousands of Bradford students and young people has succeeded in stopping their local council from slashing £1.75 million from the City’s youth services which would have amounted to a staggering 80% cut.
Aaron Kiely (NUS Black Students' Officer) presents model motions for NUS National Conference 2014 on fighting austerity and racism, stopping the privatisation of student loans, defending the right to protest and standing up for international justice.
NUS National Conference 2014 takes place in April and is the place where next year’s policies and priorities for the national student movement are decided.
