Hi, I’m Megat. I’m a teaching student in the Melbourne Graduate School of Education, and I’m running on the Left Action ticket to fight for democracy and accountability within GSA. I’ve been involved in progressive activism for the past 20 years, including campaigns against war, racism and homophobia. I’ve led campaigns on campus against attacks on higher education by the Howard Government. I’ve also consistently fought for better pay and conditions at my work. As a GSA Board Member, I will seek direction from students as opposed to following managementÍs lead. I believe student unions should fight for our interests and be more than a gateway to cushy bureaucratic careers or opportunities to cuddle up to uni management.
