MODULE: Rules and Regs

Political Activity Guidelines

Societies can organise and promote political activities:

  • Any protests or political activity must be peaceful and lawful at all times.

  • Keep your debates, activities and the information you promote fair and balanced – represent all sides of topics and issues.

  • Remember you are representing your Society and Brighton Students’ Union during all society activities. Your society is not an appropriate platform to promote personal political views, as not all members of the society may share these same views.

    (The exception to this is if your society is set up to specifically promote a political party, in which case all members will support these same views).

  • No funds your society has received from the Students Union i.e. accreditation grants, should be used to support a political party and to directly campaign for a political party i.e. printing a political party’s literature to canvass the general public.

    If your society has been set up to specifically promote a political party, they will provide you with their official literature to canvas with.

  • Societies should never directly donate funds to a political party or organisation.

  • Submit any politically relevant External Speaker requests 6 weeks before the event to give the university time to adequately plan for the event.

If you have any questions about any political activities your society is planning please get in touch with the Society Team.
