Good evening Cambridge!
Week 6 has arrived and we're gearing up for the exciting cross-campus elections season at CUSU and the GU! It's the time of year when you have the chance to run for not only sabbatical posts, but also a number of other exciting positions, listed below. If you have any questions at all, email the Elections Committee (email@example.com). Look out for more details from the Elections Committee on hustings, video debates and the all-important voting!
CUSU Council next Monday is certainly not one to miss - with the first hustings of the election candidates, and the only chance to see the NUS Delegate candidates answer your questions. The meeting will be in Clare's Elton Bowring Room from 7.15pm - see below for the full details - any student can come along and join in the debate!
If you'd like to get involved in the students' union in a different way, why not apply to be one of the two CUSU student trustees? This is a great opportunity if you would like to make a valuable contribution to Cambridge student life and to CUSU, and for anyone who wants the experience and skills which come from being a trustee of a large and dynamic charity and students' union. All of the information is available on the CUSU website and applications are now open.
The CUSU Access petition on AS level reform is still open, so if you haven't signed already, this is your last chance before it closes (http://tinyurl.com/cusualevel)! CUSU support and social groups will be running this week as per the times noted below.
Last but certainly not least, CUSU will be joining the counter-protest to the EDL demo taking place this Saturday. At CUSU Council a motion was passed which shows CUSU's condemnation of the EDL's demonstration in Cambridge, and restates our belief that students should be able to pursue their studies and daily activities without fear of harassment or racial targeting, and that we must stand together against those who advocate such divisive, discriminatory views. Students will be meeting outside Great St. Mary's Church at 11am to join the main protest for 12pm - see the details and link to the Facebook event below.
Hope that you all have a great week!
