AUSA announced that their members voted that the “Pro Life Club” should be disaffiliated and “any clubs with similiar ideology” be banned from affiliating in the future.
Auckland University should be ashamed they fund an organisation so intolerent of different viewpoints.
Where does it stop? Next they’ll ban the Young Nationals or Young NZ First from affiliating.
Universities should be a place that welcome divergent views and the challenge of idea. I disagree with the views of the Pro Life Club but I’d defend their rights to express the views to the death.
If AUSA doesn’t wish to be representative of all students, then they should not be funded by all students through Auckland University.
