VUWSA Signs On to free trade, but won’t save the Queen

VUWSA will be going free trade crazy after a motion calling for it to support the goals of free trade was passed at last week’s Student Representative Council (SRC).

The motion, tabled by members of Victoria’s fair trade rep group Just Action, called on VUWSA to become free trade and to lend its strength to making Victoria New Zealand’s first free trade campus.

A video package showing over 500 Victoria students showing support for a free trade campus was also shown.

VUWSA will also join Greenpeace’s “Sign On” campaign after a motion was passed unanimously, and in an interesting twist, now endorses New Zealand’s movement towards republicanism.

The text, which is pasted verbatim from Hardy’s, describes Young’s commitment to student advocacy and working towards a more accountable VUWSA.

Young didn’t return Salient’s repeated calls for comment.

    I think it was ‘fair’ trade.

  2. Yikes, that’s a pretty big muck up. Apologies—it is meant to be FAIR trade. My mistake.
