GOSS: Trouble in Paradise as Liberals Beef over Hong Kong, and An Announcement

GOSS: Trouble in Paradise as Liberals Beef over Hong Kong, and An Announcement

By Pulp Goss (由泡泡八卦栏目奉献)

Not Happy, Jan 气煞我也!

Campus tensions over Hong Kong are beginning to manifest in curious ways: most recently causing a little trouble for our resident moderate liberals. The drama? Students for Liberty, a campus libertarian club that boasts a number of moderate liberals in its executive and membership, sharing and later deleting a facebook event for today’s Anti-ELAB Hong Kong Solidarity Protest.

We’ve heard from a number of sources that the call to delete the event came from within the moderate liberals, with certain members concerned that public sentiments in favour of Hong Kong would pose a threat to their SRC deal with Panda. This is something that has invoked a fair amount of ire from other members, including a senior member from years past who posted the following on their private facebook page:

“Students for Liberty refused to share a protest event supporting Hong Kong...Not because of ideological reasons, but because they didn’t want to sour a deal for the university SRC. This was all decided by wannabe factional powerbrokers and all but a few members of the exec” 

Pulp hears from an anonymous source that the treasurer of SFL has since resigned, and that SFL leadership from off campus has since stepped in. We’re also told that older members of the moderate liberals are unhappy with the move, and that it was some of the newer ranks, including those up for the big positions in this year’s SRC election, that made the call. Interesting.

悉尼大学校园里针对香港问题的剑拔弩张逐渐浮出水面,情节引人入胜:最近给悉尼大学自由党青年团温和派带来了一点小小麻烦?这究竟是怎么一回事?

自由学生组织(Students for Liberty)是悉尼大学的一个有大量 澳洲自由党员担任骨干的自由主义学生社团,在其Facebook主页上转发分享了今天支持香港反对引渡条约的抗议活动,但随即删除。

我们从多方资源中获悉,正是自由党青年团内部的成员打电话要求自由学生组织删除了这个活动。这些成员担心这些倾向于香港的意见会威胁到自由党和熊猫党(Panda)在学生代表委员会SRC选举中的交易协议。可是与此同时,这种行为会引起包括高级成员在内大量党员会员的不满。其中一名资深成员在他的私人Facebook上发布道:

自由学生组织拒绝转发支持香港抗议的行动...不是因为意识形态的不同,而是因为他们投鼠忌器,唯恐失去SRC的交易。这都是那些蠢蠢欲动的派系政治掮客和一小撮社团骨干所为。

Pulp从匿名来源处了解到自由学生组织的财务长因此已经辞职。校外的自由学生组织已经介入。我们还了解到,自由党青年团的资深成员们对现在的做法也很不满意。而之前所说的这通电话,是来自比较新的,那些角逐SRC重要位置的年轻党员。妙哉妙哉?!

Quote the screenshot “在我离开悉尼大学之后,从未如此羞耻。悉尼大学的自由学生组织拒绝转发支持香港人民抗争的行为,即使在中国以军武相压以防止其获得更多自治权的如此情况。不是因为意识形态的原因,而是因为他们不想损害SRC选举里的交易。这都是那些蠢蠢欲动的派系政治掮客和一小撮社团骨干所为。那些人自称自由党员,在背地里同中国政府支持的学生一起图谋SRC,也不肯转发一个支持民主的活动。本社团伊始所为,初心所在,就是在上一次运动中支持香港对抗来自中国的压力。现在这个社团不支持一个日益壮大的国际运动,仅仅是因为他们更关心一个微不足道的小小选举,多于支持民主制度和人民选择自己政府的权利。真让我痛心疾首,对悉尼大学未来的领袖失望。”
