From The Socialist newspaper, 29 November 2007

Kick the BNP out of Northumbria

The national leader of the BNP's youth section, Joseph Finnon, is a student at Northumbria University. He recently failed to get elected as an NUS delegate for Northumbria student union. Until now Northumbria student union did not have anti-BNP policies.

Paul Phillips, Northumbria Socialist Students

But this must change! The left-wing student union president, Martin Farr, said "We don't want racists or fascists in our union". The student union executive agreed to put forward a motion at the next council meeting to stop the BNP standing in NUS elections.

Northumbria Socialist Students immediately called on students and lecturers to sign our petition to bar the BNP from the premises and to get as many students along to the next council meeting to help vote through the executive's motion.

We will propose an amendment calling for BNP members and other fascists to be banned from student union premises and from taking part in union activities altogether.

Northumbria has many international students and the union has a thriving LGBT society and these groups could feel threatened by the BNP.

Socialist Students are urging all Northumbria University students to get to the student union council meeting to vote through the motion and our amendment.
