I’m standing as Labour Students South West Rep to build a liberated, campaigning and socialist student wing.

As an SU officer, I’ve supported students facing the brunt of our broken education system. We need a student wing which fights for democratised, demarketised and decolonised education, and empowers Labour Clubs to be at the forefront of radical campaigns.

As Co-Chair of Bristol Labour Students, I saw the role Labour Clubs can play in supporting radical student action, organising rent strikes which won over £250,000 for students. Labour Students can build the movement to take power back from those who exploit us and engage students in direct action.

We will uphold our roots in the trade union movement and bring student and workers’ struggles together – standing on UCU pickets, and organising student workers to build union membership.

We will empower members to run campaigns, start movements, and build power in our communities. As your representative, I will bring together the radical energy of members across the South West and build a Labour Students which fights for socialism and student power.

I am proud to be standing with the support of Momentum and trade unionists to fight for a socialist future.

Fight for a socialist future. Join the campaign.
