The result of the General Election – a Tory majority government – comes as a nasty shock. The overwhelming majority of the electorate did not vote for the Tories – but all are going to suffer the consequences of another 5 years of Tory rule. Only by building a massive, united movement against austerity, racism, war and climate change will we have a chance of blunting and stopping the Tories assault and then kicking them out of power.

NUS National Conference 2015 saw massive victories for the left, with delegates electing the most left wing leadership team for more than three decades. This is a turning point for the student movement, marking what will hopefully be the start of a new era, with an NUS that plays a leading role in the fightback against austerity, racism, climate change and war. There is a real opportunity, for the first time in more than a generation, to realign the student movement with the labour movement and all progressive campaigns after decades of students being isolated from these struggles.

What a year 2014 has been. Not only did we stop the sell off of student’s loans, but a whole new movement for free education was born. In the same year as students joined the biggest ever demonstrations against the war on Gaza, NUS has taken a stand against the new US/UK war on Iraq and Syria. And the tide of racism both here and in the US is being challenged by a movement that is not afraid to take to the streets.
Here’s Student Broad Left’s top ten highlights from 2014 that show if we fight together, we win together.
