ISO do not want free speech on New Zealand educational campuses


The recent creation of two European student culture groups has brought all the anti-free speech worms out of the woodwork. The ISO (International Socialism Organisation of?Aotearoa /New Zealand) had this to say about students wanting to celebrate European culture.

Keep the ?European Students Association? off Auckland University?campus!

So Trumpism has hit New Zealand shores. A group calling itself the ?European Students Association? is trying to set itself up at the University of Auckland. The group?s website is covered in all the usual muck of the far right, with slogans echoing SS phrases from Nazi Germany and weasley phrases about ?European culture?.

This is a clear provocation, and it is heartening to see how students have responded. The Auckland University Students Association is speaking out against the group, and students are planning a protest against the presence of these creeps organizing on campus. We salute AUSA?s stand, and urge all students and staff to join the protest. (Facebook page details are here).

At the very best the European Students Association is a piece of post-Trump trolling, stirring the pot of antagonism. At its worst it is a genuine far-right organization attempting to gain a foothold on campus. Either way it needs to be opposed. We say: no space for fascism! Stand up to racism and bigotry!

Their goal is not?to just stop Milo from speaking and to stop those who bought tickets from listening to him, their goal is to make it too dangerous for Universities to host him as a speaker. The Dangerous Faggot Tour has become a dangerous tour for a Faggot that has opinions that violent alt-left activists want silenced.
