Over 50 delegates from universities around the country attended a meeting in Manchester last Saturday of student supporters of Socialist Worker. Most universities start back this week, at a time of mass opposition to Blair's plans for war with Iraq. Last academic year saw the biggest anti-war movement in the universities since the Vietnam War.
Delegates agreed that the movement to stop the war in Iraq could be bigger. There was an agreement to build the 28 September anti-war demonstration, and to organise meetings, protests and occupations in the event of an attack on Iraq. Delegates also agreed to run weekly Marxist forums inside the universities to discuss a wide range of ideas.
