Radical Group

Radical Group

A new group called Te Rangatahi has been formed in the University to discuss and take action on national and international issues.

The declared aim of the group is to work to promote peace, disarmament and human rights as contained in the UN charter. The group has already decided to take action on the Southern Hemisphere Petition (which received 80,000 signatories and was very favourably recommended by Parliament, but was not acted on by the Government). French nuclear tests and to publish information on South African goods imported into New Zealand. An outline programme of some of their activities for the month after term holidays will be posted on notice boards.

The name Te Rangatahi is part of a Maori proverb saying "The new net goes fishing"—indicating the transfer of responsibility in society to the younger people.
