Freshers’ Fairs 2012: Get active to support Stop the War & Palestine Solidarity Campaign

With the US and Britain continuing to spend billions of pounds waging war on Afghanistan, intervening to de-stabilise Syria and threatening to bomb Iran, it is vital that students actively support movements for peace and justice. What better place to start than the first week back at university or college?

Get active this September/October by supporting Stop the War and the Palestine Solidarity Campaign at your freshers’ fair.

Palestine Solidarity

If you are involved in running a Palestine Society or another progressive Society and would like to receive literature, stickers and resources for freshers stalls from the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC), please fill in and submit the form here. PSC will be sending the freshers packs out at the end of August/beginning of September.

Stop the War

Stop the War is holding campaign stalls at various university freshers fairs in September/October, and we’re looking for volunteers to help out.

Students have always been at the heart of our campaigns against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
With the threat of a new war in the Middle East clearly growing, we’d like to encourage all our student supporters to get involved with our campaigns over the coming weeks and months.

Whether you’re a returning postgrad or first year undergrad, a seasoned activist or just interested in our website, we can help you organise antiwar activity in your university.

If you want to get active on campus, Freshers fairs are the key place to start. See the list below for places where we already have stalls etc planned. Many of these places have thriving Stop the War societies or local groups. But if you don’t see your university below, we’re more than happy to help start something.
