A meeting of students interested in the International/National Affairs Committee was held on Friday 21 to decide on the areas and methods of work for this committee.
We started by tentatively throwing in ideas of how and where we should be working, in which areas, on or off campus, and how. This resolved into the following:
Southern Africa, and the '76 tour was felt to be a priority for action, but one which was covered already by Hart and other groups. Activity on Indochina is covered by RAVPOC and the Committee on Vietnam, although their activity needs to be extended within university. Two areas which need activity organised by the committee are the South Pacific, including Pacific Peace Zone, migrant workers, etc. and the Malaysian issue.
Working on this, we decided to hold the next committee meeting to work on a programme of activity to highlight the Malaysian issue, to extend the issue from considering how Malaysian students are affected in New Zealand, to looking at the political situation in Malaysia/Singapore.
Anyone interested in helping please come with ideas to the Board Room (1st floor Union Building) at 10.00 am Friday 4 April, or leave name and phone number at the Studass office.
