Feeling a little fresher?

Student Vols Dan and Arwel are up at the Uni today handing out leaflets and some of our ace new badges. The idea is to get enough signatures to set up a "Students against ID" chapter - which would be affiliated to Aberystwyth No2ID but which can autonomously run student centered events like film nights, debates and so on. Look out for them - and pick yourself up a badge whilst you're at it!

They'll also be working on our surprise new project... no details as yet but if you do happen to see them up at the arts centre, you may get your chance at 15 seconds of fame!

The Great Repeal Act

The Lib Dems have today announced that they would dismantle much of the current government's legislation. Successive Labour Home Secretaries have introduced over 3,000 new offences since 1997 and the Lib Dems are running a poll to see which of these are the most unpopular. No ambiguity over their stance on ID cards though - the Identity Cards act, passed in March this year is number 2 on their "Top Ten Laws to be Scrapped". The rest of the list highlights some more of the attacks on human rights and justice that this government has carried out. Okay - so it's a stunt, but a good one. Register your voice at
