Defend Democracy; Reinstate Edd Bauer, VP Education

948 Signatures Goal: 1,000

Petition to reinstate Edward Bauer in his position as Vice President Education and to delegate the decision making power over his disciplinary to a democratic vote of students.

Following a banner drop at the Liberal Democrat Conference on Friday 16th September, Edward Bauer was arrested, charged with Road Traffic Offences and held in custody for 10 days. Despite not having been convicted for any crime, the Guild of Students decided to suspend him "indefinitely" from his role as Vice President Education "with immediate effect".

We, the undersigned, believe that
1. Edward Bauer should not have been suspended from his job before trial or before disciplinary investigations have proven any offences against the Guild of Student’s Code of Conduct. This is unjust not only to him, but also compromises - on unjustifiable grounds - student representation in matters affecting their education. He should therefore be reinstated with immediate effect.

2. It should lie in the powers of students to hold their officers to account. The findings of the disciplinary panel should therefore report to the next Guild Council and the judgment of any findings or displinary deemed necessary should be taken by a democratic vote of students.
