Hundreds of university students attempt to block Jewish Society
Hundreds of students voted against the creation of a Jewish Society, after a member of the university’s Amnesty International group urged students to oppose it on the basis that it is too “political”.
More than 200 Essex University students answered ‘no’ to the question “Should there be a Jewish society?”
Every new student group at Essex must win a majority in vote of existing society members in order for its creation to be ratified by the Student Union. Recently ratified societies include the “K-Pop society”, the “Ted-X Society” and the “Pokemon Go Society”.
