Salient. Victoria University Student Newspaper. Vol 35 no. 20. 1972
Last Monday - August 21 - was the fourth anniversary of the Russian invasion of Czechoslovakia. During the past few weeks 46 Czechs have been tried and all sentenced to prison. All were supporters of the Dubcek regime that was crushed by the Red Army four years ago.
In view of the fact that many of those imprisoned were academics - professors and students - may I enquire if the Victoria University Students' Association has registered any form of protest against these blatently political trials, that the Sydney Morning Herald for August 11 described as a "squalid travesty of justice"?
John Sones, a candidate for Sports Officer wants
to thanks the 87 people who voted for him for Constructively wasting their votes. John campaigned on a platform of supporting next year's Bok tour but in fact he is a Hart supporter and welcomes Don Carson's n election. Our condolences to those tour supporters who misplaced their votes, especially our old mate Danie of Stellenbosch. Better luck next time, suckers.
