Birmingham Guild Reinstate the Vice President Education Mobilisation!!!

Edd Bauer was arrested on Friday the 16th of September after unfurling a banner at the liberal democrat conference saying “Traitors Not Welcome, Hate Clegg Love NCAFC”. He has been constantly fighting to defend education through grass roots campaigning which he pledged to do in his manifesto

On Tuesday 27th of September Edd Bauer was suspended as the vice president of education “indefinitely”. Stop Fees and Cuts Birmingham are calling for Edd’s reinstatement to his position with immediate effect and are calling for national mobilisation.

Please bring placards and banners and lets show Birmingham Guild of Students that the Banner didn’t bring the Guild into disrepute this illegitimate and undemocratic process of suspending a democratically elected representative is what is bringing the guild into disrepute!

This is a serious issue for student union democracy across the country – not just about edd. If student union bureaucrats get the idea that they can sack any officer they don’t agree with, then our right to campaign and elect our representatives freely is under threat.

Join the demonstration at the University of Birmingham Guild of Students from 1pm on Wednesday 12th October.
Attend and invite on the facebook event
