This week's Brighton New Left Initiative Show presents the new Renegade Union. Founder Alex Benham, an History undergraduate at the University of Sussex, joins us to talk about the failures of the National Union of Students (NUS) and the urgent need for a new, progressive alternative union of students to effectively challenge the multiple pressures facing higher education. The Renegade Union aims to be an experimental and horizontally organised union, emphasising a radical redistribution of student power and overcoming the bureaucratised inertia of the NUS.
