About us

We are a collective of students that exist as an inclusive cross left-ideology organisation in order to help establish a left wing presence and voice across campus.

We meet at least once a week to have conversations, plan out activism and educate around particular topics via organising lectures and events, as well as social events.

We aim to be involved in campus politics and out of campus activism. As a group, we intend to support other students with our resources and encourage a safe space for them to participate.


Our membership fee helps us to arrange guest speakers and arrange trips outside of campus to protests and other events of activism. At a low fee you are also able to access such platforms as our Discord server, where we share memes and discuss a variety of topics.

Events and Activities

We run events weekly, and have a mixture of accessible educational events, discussions and debates around a particular topic, workshops and social events. There will also be a reading group which will focus on easily available and understandable pieces of media.

Contact Us

You are welcome to contact us through our social media platforms on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We will be sharing further information about our plans for events through these platforms, but feel free to contact us if you would like to hear any more about us or what we have planned!
