Hello and welcome to The Linc’s live coverage of tonight’s All Student Members Meeting (ASM), which includes motions on free speech, boycotting the National Student Survey, and the SU’s Disciplinary Procedure.
This emergency ASM comes after a protest on freedom of speech took place outside the Students’ Union on Friday, March 10. Over 70 students signed a petition calling for the meeting to occur – surpassing the 50 signature minimum.
It also follows the SU’s controversial decision to temporarily suspend the Conservative Society’s social media accounts after they criticised the SU’s ‘red’ rating for freedom of speech in Spiked’s university rankings. The move saw the Students’ Union gain local and national media coverage.
The ban has since been revoked following an appeal.
The ASM takes place this evening, from 6pm, in the Minerva Building (MB1009). The agenda for the meeting can be found on the Lincoln Students’ Union’s website.
