FREE MOUTH CANCER SCREENING!

TODAY ONLY! Perfect 32 Dental Practice in Beverley are offering free mouth cancer screening to the general public and are encouraging students to take up this offer.

Students actually fall into a high risk category as they do all or a combination of the following :smoking, drinking, eating a diet low in fruit and veg, taking recreational drugs and exposing themselves to the Human Papilloma Virus. The HPV link is the crucial one as it is transmitted sexually and now causes 47% of oral cancers.

We urge people to call first on 01482 863667 to make an appointment to avoid disappointment.

Defend the right to Campaign!

On 17 July 2013, the Government introduced to Parliament the Transparency, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Bill. While much media attention has focused on the intention to establish a statutory register of lobbyists, the bill also includes radical changes to the rules for non-party campaigners.

We are very concerned about the implications for students’ unions, NUS and campaigners more widely. The new Bill proposes a much broader scope for regulation of campaigners in the year up to a general election, including lower spending limits and a lower spending threshold for which campaigners have to register with the Electoral Commission.

Take action, and email your MP today:

If you can share the campaign on Twitter/Facebook that would be excellent. Here are some suggested tweets:

  •   Ask your MP to vote against new proposals that restrict campaigninghttp://bit.ly/1a526GO #righttocampaign
  •   Defend the #righttocampaign, lobby your MP to ensure campaigners have a voice at the next general electionhttp://bit.ly/1a526GO
  •   Join @nusuk to defend the #righttocampaign Write to your MP now and ask them to vote against damaging new rules for campaignershttp://bit.ly/1a526GO

The Bill broadens the rules to cover all activities which are seen to be carried out for ‘election purposes’. This definition looks set to include issue-based voter-registration efforts, rallies, research, media work as well as staffing costs. The definition does not take account to the intent of the campaigner of the intention behind the campaign.

The Electoral Commission has released a briefing for MPs, which concludes, ‘In our view…the Bill raises some significant issues of workability’.The Chairman of the Commons committee examining the Lobbying Bill has called it a ‘dog’s breakfast’, warning that the plans lack credibility.

Numerous organisations have joined NUS, 38 Degrees and the National Council of Voluntary Organisations in raising their concerns about the bill, including Action for Blind People, Action for Children, ActionAid, Association of Charitable Foundations, Barrow Cadbury Trust, Battersea Cats & Dogs Home, British Heart Foundation, British Humanist Association, British Institute of Human Rights, Brook, CAFOD, Campaign for Better Transport, Campaign to Protect Rural England, Child Poverty Action Group, Christian Aid, Citizens Advice, Countryside Alliance, Crisis, Diabetes UK, Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace UK, Guide Dogs, Help the Hospices, Howard League for Penal Reform, Islamic Relief UK, Motor Neurone Disease Association, National Federation of Women’s Institutes, National Housing Federation, Oxfam GB, Population Matters, Ramblers, RNIB, The Royal British Legion, RSPB, Salvation Army, Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations, Sheila McKechnie Foundation, Shelter, Small Charities Coalition, Sue Ryder, Tearfund, Turning Point, The Wildlife Trust, Women’s Aid, Woodland Trust, and WWF-UK.

Meanwhile Conservative Home, a coalition of the Taxpayers Alliance, the Adam Smith Institute, English PEN, the Freedom Association and others have spoken out against the bill.

Do contact your MP and raise your concerns to help ensure we can all campaign effectively, we will be in touch about next steps.
