Forum To Debate: “Should Equality Mean Equality?”
A proposal has been made to LUU’s ‘Better Union’ forum that the Union should “give a voice to those who are being silenced by those who claim their voices are too loud”.
Gary Heyes, a Leeds University student, has submitted a proposal titled ‘Should equality mean equality?’, detailing a view that “all people should be heard and taken seriously, whether a minority or not.”
Mr Heyes explained that he proposed the motion because, in campaigns of equality and diversity, “the majority are looked upon as the enemy whose issues are minuscule by comparison and have life almost too easy.” He specified his further belief that Union campaigns should “[also] help everyone by asking the Union to focus on issues that attain solely to men.”
The motion will be proposed at the next Student Forum, which will take place on Monday 29th February from 17:30-19:30 in LUU Room 6. All students are welcome to attend.
