the chair is having trouble finding someone to speak to for ths motion but Thomas from Bristol takes to the stage.
For: Thomas from Bristol – There may be diverse views, but there are also important campaigns that need to be focussed on for students. Issues that you have authority and legitamicy to work on. At the moment, unions are spending so much money sending people around the world and working on issues that don’t affect students and think about how much we could do if we weren’t spending all our moeny on that.
Against: unnamed: the student movement is an internationalist movement. We need to stand with our brothers and sisters abroad and lobby the government on issues that affect them. We are a movement that is bigger than us and we need support of other people and we must give them support back.
Summation passed – goes straight to the vote where it clearly falls.
