Respect student conference

by Dominic Kavakeb, Essex University Respect and newly elected Student Respect national treasurer
Issue No. 2080

Around 50 students representing university and student groups from around England and Wales attended the Student Respect conference last Sunday.

There were lively opening and closing plenaries, and delegates elected a 12-person national committee.

Some of the highlights of the day were the workshops – which were introduced by student Respect members – on topics such Latin America and the fight against racism.

There was a lot of input in the discussions and delegates shared ideas about how to organise around different issues.
