Refreshing student work in Bangor
Bangor Socialist Students society ran two stalls at Bangor Student Union's re-freshers fair.
Eight members of the society took part on the stalls, campaigning against nuclear weapons and nuclear power, and to build the Campaign to Defeat Fees (CDF).
We had several detailed conversations with students as well as some non-students who were interested to find out what we had to say, in particular how they could get involved with the CDF day of action on 21 February.
We sold 18 copies of The Socialist and one Socialism Today. Nine people put their names down to join the society while many others took more information about Socialist Students.

Coronavirus crisis - Finance appeal
The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.
The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.
The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.
- The Socialist Party's material is more vital than ever, so we can continue to report from workers who are fighting for better health and safety measures, against layoffs, for adequate staffing levels, etc.
- Our 'fighting coronavirus workers' charter', outlines a programme to combat the virus and protect workers' living conditions.
- When the health crisis subsides, we must be ready for the stormy events ahead and the need to arm workers' movements with a socialist programme - one which puts the health and needs of humanity before the profits of a few.
Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our special coronavirus appeal.
