Manifesto summary: 

I’m as passionate about UCLU as I’m about free education and social justice! I don’t just talk, I take action for radical change. And, if you ask me, it’s about time some radical change was made at UCL – before it’s too late!

I will:

- Demand more space on campus for students, including rehearsal and performance spaces for Clubs and Societies and to stop Wednesday afternoon lectures.

- Continue UCLU’s campaign for free education and lower rent in student accommodation to give everybody an equal chance to come to UCL.

- Carry on from my experience as Halls Representative; at all times acting transparently, actively engaging with students and taking a firm line against the bosses.

- Accept no cuts to UCLU’s liberation campaigns or representation for women or minority groups.

- Make sure that all sides get a fair deal from the IOE merger, resisting any bulldozing to IOE bars or facilities.

- Stand against government cuts to Disabled Students’ Allowance.

- Campaign for UCL to cap tuition fees for international students’ and postgrads.
