Report: Swansea University Freshers Fayre
29th September 2008Despite the almost intolerable heat and crammed conditions at this years freshers fayre we had 34 students sign up to Socialist Students with several indicating an interest in joining the Swansea branch of the Socialist Party and getting involved in our local campaigns.
With the world economic crisis coinciding with freshers there was a lot more discussion about the future of capitalism and what a socialist alternative would mean. The minority of students who were not drunk and looking for serious answers headed towards our stalls inside and outside of the fayre.
Greg Maughan, from the Socialist Party's national office spoke to the most successful freshers meeting for many years and helped lay the foundations for an active Socialist Student society this year.
