Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 1, No. 11 June 15, 1938



Upon the outbreak of aggression. Indignation flared high, and in the space or a few, days old organisations of national solidarity were reorganised, new ones inaugurated.

All of these groups are represented on the centrulising League for Cultural Groups for National Defence. The League stands for the defence of Chinese culture that has given so much to mankind. It calls for the mobilisation and support, of all the International cultural organisations that are determined to withstand the encroachments of Fascism and war.

That this call has been taken up by authors the World over is their vindication. An outstanding demonstration of the sincerity and realness of this response was given recently when a number of well-known English writers, including Storm Jameson. Naomi Mitchison and Stephen Spender paraded in London bearing sandwich-boards and banners demanding the boycott of Japanese goods and popular action in defence of China. J.D.F.
