The University of Lincoln Students’ Union has formally apologised to the Conservative Society, after their social media accounts were temporarily suspended last month.
In a letter to the society, SU President Sammi Storey said: “On behalf of the governing body of the Students’ Union, I formally apologise for any impact that the suspension of your social media account between the 4th – 7th March 2017 had.”
The news follows an emergency ASM held on March 20, which passed a motion on freedom of speech that called for the SU to formally apologise to the Conservative Society.
Nearly 90 students attended the meeting – the highest turnout this academic year – after a petition calling for the ASM reached more than 70 signatures at a free speech protest.
In a post on their Twitter page, the society said: “We are very happy we have finally received an apology from the SU. Better late than never.”Tweet
