Socialist Students Society
Join NowPolitics 
How can kick out Boris, the Tories and end austerity? How do we unite to stop the rise of racism and the far right? Is there another financial crisis around the corner? Is it too late to save the planet from environmental collapse? Come along to our meetings at 6pm Every Monday in Nuffield Theatre to discuss these questions and most importantly, find answers to how we can solve them. Our aims are: 1) To host regular meetings where students discuss and debate both current and historical ideas that can help us understand the world we live in and how we might be able to change it. 2) To educate members on the values and practices of socialism. 3) To be active in the struggle to change things. We will organise and mobilise our members to defend education, fight war and oppression and to campaign on a wide range of other issues relevant to our members. Southampton Socialist Students is affiliated to Socialist Students, which is a democratic campaigning organisation that has groups in over 40 university and college campuses across Britain. We stand against the marketization of higher education and campaign for free education, with an end to student debt.
