CUSU council pass motion on Remembrance

The previously debated issue will now go ahead


Recently one of the biggest debates surrounding the university on an internal and nationwide basis has been the CUSU council rejection of motions that wanted to introduce a more structured commemoration programme surrounding Remembrance Day.

However, despite this recent debate, it was voted swiftly through last night by CUSU council that they would accept a motion to further commemorate Remembrance Day.

This motion is to remember all those from inside and outside of this Cambridge community who had lost their lives to conflict. Highlighting that they would not be forgotten.

Additionally it was noted that as it was the centenary of the end of WWI, we should use this period of time as a university to reflect on what has happened before us and think about how "we can seek to learn the lessons of the past."

As they have previously, CUSU will be present at Cambridge's annual Remembrance Day commemorations.
