De Montfort freshers stall

The Socialist Students stall outside this year's freshers fair at De Montfort University, Leicester - demanding 'Tories out - Corbyn in' - got a very good response with over 30 sign-ups.

We were also using the stall to involve students with the local Save Our NHS campaign and this resonated well with many. One nursing student, who attended our follow-up meeting, told us about her own experiences as a carer under NHS cuts. She wants to get involved with the society.

Hopefully, we will soon have a Socialist Students group at the university.
