Your Activities and Development Officer, Jack wants to campaign on drug safety at LSE.
56% of students use drugs throughout their time at University, and a punitive drugs policy does not guarantee students’ safety. Over the course of the year we will be engaging in some research to find out the drug usage and habits of LSE students in a confidential, safe manner. Using these results we wish to campaign for a review of the university’s drug policy and to create an open, safe dialogue about drug usage at university.
The SU also wishes to provide students with drug testing kits.
Complete the survey.
With an election due imminently, we will be running a campaign to ensure all students are registered to vote.
We will be demonstrating the benefits of being on the electoral registers, highlighting how easy it is to be registered and what exactly legal documents you will need on the day to vote.
LSESU believes that it’s your democratic right to have your voice heard at any election.
Register to vote here.
The campaign was launched in response to Hong Kong’s 2019 pro-democracy protests.
It aims to raise awareness & mobilise LSE’s international student body to:
Take action against the inhumane and violent crackdown of the 2019 protests in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region
Foster understanding of the Hong Kong pro-democracy movements and its underlying complexities (e.g. ‘One Country, Two Systems’, media representation, international relations, colonial history and identity, etc.)
Engage in peaceful, productive and informed dialogue on the issue of Hong Kong across political differences
Lend international solidarity to Hong Kong in the city’s greater movement to safeguard freedoms of speech, press, assembly, education, and democratic reform
