A National Union of Students’ (NUS) campaign has become a “vehicle for extremist interests”, a report has warned.

The “Students not Suspects” campaign, which has been part of NUS policy since 2015, encourages universities to rally against the Government’s flagship counter-radicalisation policy Prevent.

But according to the Henry Jackson Society, a counter-extremism think tank, the campaign has led to the NUS partnering with a number of questionable organisations.
