Mobilising is well under way on campuses across the country, as SUs launch into freshers weeks with gusto. Massive props to Dudley College, City of Westminster College and Sussex Downs College, Lancaster and Leeds SUs for going all out at their welcome weeks to plug the demo; to Goldsmiths SU who took the demo to Bestival; to Sheffield Hallam who have already got 160 students signed up to put their bums on seats down to the demo through their freshers fair; and to Derby SU who got their VP Community Amy donning this amazing grape (!?) suit for the cause.

We know lots more of you are doing lots more fantastic work on this - please send in your updates and pics to and we'll feature what you're doing.
