Volunteering is something I have been heavily involved in whilst at University and now in my final year, I am on the Student Executive Committee for Warwick Volunteers. Throughout the year we do plenty of volunteering and offer students many different opportunities, but we use Student Volunteering Week as a celebration of all the volunteering that goes on at Warwick.
The far-right, the BNP and the short-lived Liverpool-based National Culturists, have previously attempted to agitate on campuses. But what is new and threatening about National Action as a phenomenon is the group's overt, totally unconcealed admiration for Adolf Hitler, its links to the ideology of violent terrorists, and most significantly the advanced, potentially ground-breaking propaganda tactics the group employs .
Writer and actor Lucy-Anne Holmes started the campaign in the wake of Jessica Ennis' incredible gold win at the 2012 Olympics, an amazing feat by anyone's standards and a rare opportunity for a woman to be recognized for sporting success in a world where newspaper sports pages are dominated by the boys.
SUs around the country have been voting to remove The Sun from their campuses, and have been successful. For us at Warwick though, it's a bit tougher. We do not own or manage the store selling the newspaper. Therefore we can't just make a vote and stop. Unfazed by this, we at NMP3W believe that this is something we can, and must, achieve. We do not want this 'institution' to continue on our grounds.
