Salient: Victoria University Students' Newspaper. Vol. 24, No. 7. 1961.



In accordance with the Principles of Co-operation adopted by the 9th International Student Conference, it is noted that
1racialism is a discriminatory practice arising out of an attitude of mind, founded on prejudicial ideas of the inequality of men;
2racialism in any of its manifestations is an irrational and degrading phenomenon afflicting mankind, particularly at the present time;
3the political, economic, social and educational development of territories under colonialist domination is severely restricted by both overt and disguised racialism;
4the tyranny of racialism, wherever it exists, denies equality of opportunity, limits the availability of education, undermines human rights, and obstructs the progress of civilisation.
Accordingly, the 9th International Student Conference:
arejects energetically the myth of inherent superiority or inferiority of any ethnic group of humanity;
bcondemns racialism in all Its forms and in particular the denial of fundamental, political, social, economic and educational rights on the grounds of race;
cdeclares its unqualified support to all students and peoples engaged in the fight against racialism.
