Facebook: Cancel Trimesters


Tharunka contacted UNSW for a statement in regards to the recent hostile treatment of Cancel Trimesters activists by campus security guards.

(Read more about the incident in Shovan Bhattarai’s report.)

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.”


The campaign is currently working towards a rally on Wednesday the 26th of June.
