From The Socialist newspaper, 21 January 2009

Campaigning in Exeter

On 15 January, Exeter Socialist Students took to the high street to campaign on behalf of Robbie Segal, Socialist Party activist and shop workers' union Usdaw presidential candidate.

Mixed responses were received from the staff we spoke to.

Generally, younger workers were impressed to hear that a fighting alternative existed, but as expected many knew very little about trade unionism.

What was also striking was the genuine fear among staff in certain workplaces, where unionising clearly had tight restrictions.

On the whole however, our patient and open approach was well received by shop floor staff, and impressed the few shop stewards available for discussion.

Exeter Socialist Students is presently building for a public meeting on unemployment, linked to the Youth Fight for Jobs campaign.
