Salient. Victoria University of Wellington Students' Newspaper. Volume 31 Number 15, July 9, 1968



Sir—How long must we permit pseudo-George Wallaces to roam unbridled around this university? Certainly there is considerable apathy on the part of the N.Z. Government as regards this situation, as these racialists are actually encouraged to come to this university and partake some learning. With this position one is forced to wonder why governmental apathy should be readily inculcated in the student body which seems quite prepared to tolerate the inclusion of racialists to university sports, their sharing of tables with decent students, both in the library and the cafe, their perpetual chattering in ideologies that in no way resemble democracy. I have attended Victoria for two years and during this time have noticed that there has been little open defiance against these racialists whose arrogance has increased accordingly. The time has now come when every serious-minded student must openly declare his views hitherto held privately as to the utter exclusion or even segregation of the above mentioned racialist students.

Yours sincerely,

A. L. Vasan.
