Salient. Official Newspaper of the Victoria University of Wellington Students Assn. Volume 40, No. 16. July 11 1977

[Letter from Pak Long to Salient Vol. 40 No. 16 July 11 1977]

Dear Editor,

May I refer to your last issue (no. 15) in which an attack was directed against WMSSA. After being in Wellington for three years I find that this is the first time I have needed to write a letter to Salient. This is particularly necessary because I feel that WMSSA is unjustifiably attacked. Having been disillusioned by all the stale politics a that have gone on for the past two years I have suddenly found a body that is capable and willing to serve the interests of the students. This can be seen by the recent success of the ISC, the many get-togethers, [unclear: pic nics] which they have organised to promote friendship, film shows, games at the gym, and also their Involvement in the cut-back issue.

At least they realised that they must look after our interests and that we are not a group of overseas students to be kicked around like a football ! Without a representative, this will give the present government added confidence to push us around like nobody's business.

As to them being manipulated by VUWSA and NZUSA I guess that there is quite a bit of nastiness in it. Perhaps the writer can offer us conclusive proof? From what I see the writer has misused the space that the Editor of Salient has kindly offered him. I guess that Malaysians shouts not attack each other but work together.

Yours ever,

Pak Long
