At the freshers’ fair, we took nearly 200 signups across two days, and delivered an excellent first meeting to a packed room. This was repeated in our second meeting, showing the appetite students have for a socialist fightback.

1 October was a hugely important day of action. Socialist Students ran a campaign stall and stood in solidarity with workers at a ‘support the strikes’ rally, and on the picket lines earlier in the day.

We participated in the 10,000-strong ‘Yes Cymru’ march, calling for a socialist Wales and a Welsh parliament with real powers. And stood with Iranian and Kurdish people in Cardiff, protesting the death of Mahsa Amini.

We continue to hold successful meetings, campaign for a socialist society, and support strikes and protests.
