Towards a Democratic SRC!

Towards a Democratic SRC!

And now, what you've all been waiting for; people started asking questions like; 'Why is all this so boring?', 'Why is nobody here?', and most particulary 'What can we do about it?'.

Patently SRC does not represent the majority of students. More effective publicity was suggested, but as Tony Ward said 'you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink'. In other words the majority of SRC business is only interesting or even intelligible to those involved directly in student politics.

Don Carson said SRC had the potential to be very powerful - Vic is the only campus with an open SRC - but that its decline was based on a vicious circle; it is powerless because nobody is interested and nobody is interested because it is powerless. Somehow the spiral must be reversed. A few scraps with the university are what is needed.

So if you see injustices in the present system (and you would have to be deaf, dumb and blind not to), don't mutter them to yourself; speak up at SRC.

This meeting is going to be a pushover

I hope they are listening to me. They aren't listening

It didn't go as we had planned. I know: I think my deodarant let me down.
