Statement from the Dialectic Society
Statement from the Dialectic Society:
6th March 2013
“The Dialectic Society wants to play a leading role in promoting equality and respect within debating on our campus. In relation to recent events, we have decided not to disaffiliate from GUU at present. We retain the right to disaffiliate if the discipline process and conduct of GUU fails to meet the expectations of our Board and our members.
We support action to ensure a secure and welcoming environment for all students on our campus. We encourage all our members and all students to attend the ‘Rally Against Misogyngy’ outside the library on Friday the 8th of March at midday.
Furthermore, we will organise a ‘Debating For All’ workshop on Thursday the 14th of March from 5.30pm till 7pm in Qudos of Queen Margaret Union. We want to extend the opportunities that debating can bring in improving your confidence, engaging in discussion, sharing different ideas and respecting others. We welcome all students to join our society next Thursday to change debating on campus.”
