Setbacks and Campaign Building

Over the summer a motion for an ethical investment policy was rejected by the University Council on the grounds that it was 'impractical', and our good friends in management used this as an excuse to go back on their agreement not to invest in arms companies. This is an outrage, and Cardiff Students Against War is mobilising to push for an ethical investment policy over the coming year. There will be a public meeting soon on the subject of ethical investment, and how to expand and escalate our antiwar campaigning over the coming year.

Exciting times! Now it's time to step up and get active. We made some real progress last year with the occupation - we rattled the management of a serious university - but now we need to build support for our campaign, and build a mass movement on campus for ethical investment.

The time has come to make real change at this university.
