Bristol, Greenwich and Imperial motions pass: 10 unis now officially condemn ‘Student Rights’

On Monday Bristol University students union joined the growing list of universities whose students have officially condemned the group ‘Student Rights’.

Coming hot on the heels of similar motions at Greenwich and Imperial, the Bristol students’ vote on 2 June brings the total number of individual unis to have officially passed policies against the organisation to 10.

On top of these, it of course comes in the wake of the damning media coverage that followed the National Union of Students (NUS) vote to reprimand the group for the way its activities ‘fuel Islamophobia’, meaning ‘Student Rights’ credibility is now in tatters.

As well as the vote by NUS – a body which represents 7 million students in the UK – the NUS Black Students Committee also passed an amendment to its anti-racism motion which resolved to set up a working group to continue the work of the Real Student Rights counter-campaign to monitor and oppose the group.
