No Nazis in the UQ Union

Demand Nazi supporter, Kurt Tucker, resign from the UQ Union Council and academic board. 

Leading member and president of the UQ Liberal National Club until his resignation today, Kurt Tucker, has openly admitted to sympathizing with Hitler’s Nazi party. Tucker is quoted by the Daily Telegraph, saying “I openly accept I would be a Nazi Party member if this was 30's Germany…”

It is unacceptable that any student representative could express sympathy with fascism and Nazism.

As the elected Thrive (Young Liberal) candidate for the Humanities and Social Sciences faculty to the UQ Union’s Council, this makes his comments deplorable.

Tucker is also a student "representative" on the UQ Academic Board, a governing body of the University.

We therefore call on the UQ Union to convene a Union Council meeting to condemn Kurt and to accept his resignation from the Council.
