Leeds students contest union elections

During the recent LUU exec elections Leeds Against Cuts endorsed the following candidates:

-Dan (CIA)
-David (Education)
-Hanif (Welfare)
-Shadin (Community)

Sadly no anti-cuts candidates won, but a turn out of over 300 for Dan shows that the emphasis on campaigning against cuts during the election struck a chord with many students.

Candidates canvassing spoke to hundreds of students all over campus and in their halls to try to win the vote for a union exec that would be committed to mobilising the student body in support of their lectures, their education and in firm opposition to the management.

Despite the victory of people who have often been hostile to the campaign, we can now redouble our efforts to be dynamic and innovative in taking advantage of the raised profile and recent successes of Leeds Uni Against Cuts.

Join us over the next 2 weeks as Leeds students take part in the national wave of action to defend education from March 1st.
