Trade union branch model motion:
This branch notes
1. The vicious police response to recent student protests, including kettling thousands of protesters, many of them 16 or younger, in the freezing cold without access to food or toilets; pulling one protester from his wheelchair not once, but twice; and beating dozens of people, one so badly that he suffered a brain haemorrhage.

This branch believes
1. That this level of police violence has not been seen since the miners’ strike. As struggle against the Tory/Lib Dem cuts grows, however, police brutality and intimidation will grow too – unless we do something to stop it. This is an essential part of the fight against the cuts.

This branch resolves

1. To affiliate to the Right to Resist campaign against police violence and intimidation, and for the right to organise and protest, launched in December and supported by student activists and trade unionists from across the country. [Affiliation fees: organisations of less than 500 members, £20; more than 500, £50; more than 1,500, £100.]
2. To order … extra copies Right to Resist’s booklet for activists outlining your rights and how to deal with police intimidation and repression [Affiliates receive 50, 100 or 200 copies; extra copies are £10 for 100, £20 for 300, £40 for 800.]
3. To invite a R2R speaker to our next meeting.
4. To circulate information about the campaign to our members, and link to it from our branch website.

Student Union Model Motion:
We note
1. The vicious police response to student protests against fees and cuts, including kettling thousands of protesters, many of them 16 or younger, in the freezing cold without access to food or toilets; pulling Jody McIntyre from his wheelchair not once, but twice; and beating dozens of people, in the case of Alfie Meadows so badly that he suffered a brain haemorrhage.

We believe
1. That as struggle against the Tory/Lib Dem cuts grows, police brutality and intimidation, not just against students but against workers, will grow too – unless we do something to stop it. This is an essential part of the fight against the cuts.

We resolve
1. To affiliate to the Right to Resist campaign against police violence and intimidation, and for the right to organise and protest, launched in December and supported by student activists and trade unionists from across the country. [Affiliation fees: organisations of less than 500 members, £20; more than 500, £50; more than 1,500, £100.]
2. To order … extra copies Right to Resist’s booklet for activists outlining your rights and how to deal with police intimidation and repression [Affiliates receive 50, 100 or 200 copies; extra copies are £10 for 100, £20 for 300, £40 for 800.]
3. To invite a R2R speaker to our next meeting.
4. To circulate information about the campaign, and link to it from our website.
