We had our first Freshers activity today at Heriot Watt University, a campus uni on the outskirts of Edinburgh. The Fair was on from 12-4. Two comrades turned up just before 12 and set up the stall on the grass outside. We were approaching students asking if they “want to turn the world upside down?” And if they’re “interested in revolutionary Marxism?” We handed out probably abut 50 leaflets and we sold 3 copies of the Revolution newspaper. We got talking to quite a few interested people, including someone from the SNP society! We’ll have a meeting with some of the people we met at the fair within the next week or so.
As the new year begins, Marxist students are preparing for a busy term of activity: showing solidarity with striking workers; discussing revolutionary events past and present; and building the forces of Marxism on UK campuses. Join the MSF today!
