Students! No More Page 3 needs YOU!

One area where the No More Page 3 campaign is building strength and gaining recognition, unsurprisingly, is with Universities across the UK. Many are voting on whether or not Page 3 in The Sun, and the content of some other newspapers, is inappropriate enough to warrant their removal from the SU shops.

So far Abertay, Aberystwyth, Birmingham City, Bradford, Cambridge, Cardiff, Chester, Durham, Dundee, Edge Hill (Lancashire), Edinburgh, East Anglia, Essex, Hull, Kingston, Leeds, Leeds Met, LSE, Manchester Met, Manchester, Newcastle, University of Nottingham, Oxford Brookes, Sheffield, Stirling, UCL, Warwick, Winchester, York St John and Brasenose College, St Hugh’s College, New College, University College and Teddy Hall, Oxford have all voted in favour of removing the newspaper from their shops.

We want your University to do the same! Could you contact your student union and take it to a vote?

This package has been put together for you to help you access more resources on Page 3 and the Sun.

You may wish to use it in a multitude of ways-

  • As a resource for coursework or presentations
  • To facilitate a debate
  • To promote the campaign within campus or your local area
  • To aid you in setting up a Sun boycott

At the top of the page you will find links to our useful FAQs, T-shirt order page and the petition page as well as more information listed below. We hope we have put things here that you will find helpful but please don’t hesitate to contact us if there is anything else we can help with or if you have any suggestions about additional resources which may be useful to you.
