Taking action for safer students

Posted on November 23, 2015 by

Third-year Linguistics student Laura FitzPatrick has launched a petition asking Greater Manchester Police to take the initiative to prevent sexual assault.

Laura was quoted in the Manchester Evening News as saying: “We report on rape after rape in Fallowfield and it’s horrible. So many people don’t feel safe and they don’t think anything will be done to prevent it.” At the time of writing, the petition had received nearly 5,000 signatures.

Manchet is proud of Laura for taking the initiative and calling for more police support! You can sign the petition here.
