Shakira Martin of NUS (FE) on 'Proper, proper, proper solidarity'

One speaker made a particular impression at yesterday's Downing StreetStreet demonsration against the measures contained in the Government's Queen's Speech. Shakira Martin, from Lewisham, is the newly elected NUS Vice President for Further Education. Shakira spoke about how daily lived experience deepens political understanding and the ability to connect with people and express solidarity.

  1. Shakira sounds great. Let's hope she doesn't go the way of some other NUS high flyers such as past presidents Jack Straw, Sue Slipman, Jim Murphy, Stephen Twigg, Lorna Fitzsimmons and Charles Clarke.
