Two Western Sydney University Resistance activists are running for the editorial board of the student magazine, Cruwsible.

Phil Craig and Ian Escandor, both current Student Campus Council members, believe the student magazine could do much more to encourage activism on campus and better reflect students' concerns.

“Cruwsible should encourage more activism”, Craig told Green Left Weekly. “But the only way to do this is to have more student consultation.

“The magazine should be used as a platform to introduce and explore contemporary issues and events, especially those that affect our university which sprawls across Western Sydney.

“I will be fighting to keep the magazine as a voice for the students rather than a tool for building revenue for the university through corporate advertising”, Escandor told GLW.

Both said that it was also “extremely important” that Cruwsible maintains a strong online presence.

Resistance is encouraging all WSU students to vote for Ian Escandor and Phil Craig. Voting closes on October 23.
