Over 100 delegates gathered on Sunday of last week at the first full Student Respect national conference.
In addition to hearing George Galloway MP, Respect councillor Rania Khan, Lindsey German and others, delegates had a chance to debate and discuss some of the finer political and strategic points in the workshops.
Those on Latin America, Palestine, climate change and Islamophobia were particularly well attended.
The discussions in the workshops will form the basis of Student Respect’s campaigning on these issues. Delegates elected a 12 person national committee which will oversee the national running of Student Respect.
The conference itself provided an excellent place for Student Respect members and supporters to come together, before heading back to their campuses to continue to build the alternative on the ground and in the student unions and NUS.
