A student at Leeds University has just told us that there is a move afoot to ban leaflets on campus.
The motion is discussed here.
What is particularly worrying is the support for the ban from some students – who oppose flyering on the basis that they personally find it ‘annoying’ or a ‘waste of time’. As if we should ban everything that annoys us. Civil liberties don’t get a look in.
We’d like to hold a meeting in Leeds to discuss this issue, as some student societies are outraged about this.
If you are at Leeds and are against the ban, send an email to our campaign against leafleting bans…
