College elects campaigner to fight for students

College elects campaigner to fight for students #url#

Gareth Bromhall

The students of Pembrokeshire College have elected me as student governor, on a socialist platform, with three times the votes of my opponent.

As a member of Youth Fight for Education I will use this opportunity to improve the conditions of the students of the college. The Welsh Assembly has axed the bus subsidy that means students over 19 years old will now have to pay 15-20 a week to get to college. Access to EMA, which is still available in Wales, is being restricted to those with the lowest household income.

We need to campaign against this, as part of a full programme to stop all cuts and bring back grants and EMA.
