Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 3, No. 1. 1940
Postscript to Peace
Postscript to Peace.
Since the article "Prelude to Peace" appearing in this issue was written, the question of the affiliation of the V. U. C. Peace Society has been discussed by the Executive, who, by a majority vote, decided that the Society should not be granted affiliation.
The position is now, that if a majority at a special general meeting of the Students' Association decide that affiliation should be granted, the Executive must grant affiliation. That is, if you think that public discussion on questions of peace, war and civil liberties should be allowed at the College, you can come along to the special general meeting, vote on the question, and the Society will then be able to carry on its activities at the College.
An application for the holding of a special general meeting has been filed with the Executive, and the meeting will be held next week or shortly after Easter.
This is the first time since the beginning of the war that free speech at V.U.C. has been called into question, and if affiliation is not granted, a precedent will be set fox further restrictions, which will affect every student.
