IUS a Cominform Agency

IUS a Cominform Agency

If C.B.'s reasons for people leaving IUS are incorrect, then what are the correct ones? The simple answer is that these student unions objected and still object to partisan political activity on the part of IUS. Like most of "Salient's" readers, they objected to such things as the gloriflcation of North Korean aggression, the unconstitutional expulsion of Yugoslavia when that country was expelled from the Cominform, the fervent support of all causes that were Communist causes, and the fanatical opposition to those that were not. These students objected to the failure of the IUS to be "political" when it was a question of protesting against the shooting of Czech students by the Czech police when they were protesting against Communist "Action Committees" taking over their democratically run student bodies. It was because the IUS had become little more than a Cominform agency that those national student unions left.
