Edinburgh University is having a referendum on affiliating to NUS, the National Union of Students. In the website http://wwwyes2nus.com
the campaign for voting â€œyesâ€? to join the NUS is presented, whilst on http://www.saneonline.org.uk
the opposition is mobilising.
Currently the EUSA- the Edinburgh Union Student Association- is not affiliated to the NUS, though the two organisations were historically connected. It has not been a member since 1979, when students voted in a referendum to leave. A referendum in 1984 decided to maintain that position. http://www.eusa.ed.ac.uk/news/story.cfm?article=241
Voting was also possible online under http://www.esp.ed.ac.uk
