NUS Women’s Officer Has This To Say To Everyone Calling For NUS Disaffiliation
This week, following the election of Malia Bouattia as NUS president, students across the country have been calling for their SUs to disaffiliate from The National Union of Students.
With movements arising at Oxford, Cambridge, Manchester, York, Aberystwyth, Exeter and Lincoln, some have suggested NUS is facing a membership crisis.
Now, Susuana Amoah, NUS Women’s Officer, has today taken to twitter to fight back against the movements for disaffiliation.
Amoah began by warning of the consequences of leaving, such as a lack of resources and a weakened ability to lobby for “things like disabled students rights & survivor support”.
She then goes on to suggest the rallies to leave NUS stem from a fear of a Muslim woman now being in charge: “Literally where were you when black and muslim members of our movement were receiving hate messages from racist and fascists all year?” she questioned.
Here’s what she had to say.
