A UNSW spokesperson responded to the incident:
“UNSW regrets that security officers asked students not to hand out leaflets on campus. This should not have happened and is not acceptable.
Freedom of expression is precious to the UNSW community and will be protected on our campuses.
We acknowledge the incident should not have happened and apologise to the affected students. Steps have been taken to ensure that it does not happen again.”
