As a grassroots activist who has experienced the power of collective action and occupation, I know that when things get tough we only fight harder. But students need support. NUS cannot be exclusive to sabbatical officers and SU staff members. It needs to be out of the boardrooms and on our campuses, fighting for students, standing in solidarity with workers, and ensuring that all students feel equipped to demand for better. If elected on to NSC, I’ll make sure that NUS is the radical campaigning union it can be, supporting every student in every corner of the country.
