Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 10, No. 11. July 30, 1947
You will have read in Saturday's papers of the demonstration by the students of Sydney University for the same purpose, and of its result, when the meeting was forcibly broken by the local representatives of law and order. We hope that our own police force will be more reasonable. Australia can be proud of the part some of her citizens played in the Indonesian War of Independence two years ago, when the Dutch forces were supported by the British Army. At that time Australian watersiders successfully boycotted all ships loading war materials for the Dutch, thus considerably assisting the Indonesian people. New Zealand watersiders imposed the same boycott, and many ships were tied up, but this issue was never so sharp here as in Australia.
