FXU Referendum: Do you want the motion ‘FXU to support No More Page 3’ to become FXU policy?
This is an all student vote.
FXU Equal Opportunities Officer, Tilda Dunn, has proposed a motion for FXU to support ‘No More Page 3’ on campus, seconded by a number of students. The motion includes openly supporting the national ‘No More Page 3’ campaign on campus, lobbying FX Plus to stop stocking The Sun on campus in the shop and libraries until the newspaper removes it’s Page 3 and asking students how they want to be portrayed in the national media.
After Tilda took her motion proposal on ‘FXU to support No More Page 3’ to FXU Student Council, the Council ratified that the decision should lie with the student body via an FXU referendum. 21 Council members voted, reaching quorum with 16 in favour, 3 not in favour and 2 abstained.
