Vote Maisie for VP HE!

Submitted by AWL on 11 March, 2020 - 9:58

Maisie Sanders, an activist with Student Strike Solidarity, the Student Left Network, and Workers’ Liberty, will be standing for Vice President Higher Education (VPHE) in National Union of Students (NUS) elections being held on 16-31 March, in the run-up to NUS conference on 31 March/ 2 April.

In that election she will be the only distinctly socialist left candidate, with a clear commitment to support the UCU dispute and to take a clear political stand against marketisation.

A number of other candidates across three full-time officer positions are generally leftist; however, the emphasis is on professional expertise rather than an activist orientation.

The election is a rare opening for political contest with NUS, where wide-ranging anti-democratic reforms carried in 2019 have left the organisation with just three officer positions being elected and a shut-off and limited conference.
