The Sun has been banned from the University of Sheffield’s Students’ Union.
A decision made by the University’s Students’ Union council means that the Sun will no longer be sold by the Union.
The proposal was put forward by women’s councillor Lucy Pedrick as part of the No More Page 3 campaign that seeks to remove ‘Page 3’ from the Sun newspaper.
Council members also voted on whether to send the decision to referendum but this motion fell.
Pedrick said a “referendum would not be a fair debate.”
Officer Luke MacWilliam disagrees and said a referendum would “be positive for the student body. It could educate and change people’s minds.”
The London School of Economics is also boycotting the newspaper.
