Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 29, No. 12. 1966.

[introduction]

Eric Butler—the director of the most extreme group of Australia's ultra-right—passed through Wellington during the university vacation.

Although His "League of Rights" is anti-Semitic, racist, and neo-Nazi, he won an enthusiastic reception from the local press.

The Group which sponsored the meeting at which he spoke, the NZ Democratic Society, also received laudatory newspaper coverage.

Mr. Butler, who was in New Zealand to rally support for the Smith regime, says that "Rhodesia is the front line against the forces of world revolution."

His political career is remarkably consistent. Before the war he wrote a book called the "International Jew," which accused the Jews of being responsible for the First World War, the Bolshevik Revolution, the Depression and the rise of Hitler.
