Disaffiliate the UQ Socialist Alternative and ban them from using spaces without bookings
This petition had 81 supporters
This petition is written to the UQ Union and University in response to what has been a long term problem. For years students have been harassed By the UQ Socialist Alternative.
Recently there was an incident where a female student who was leading an orientation event asked a member of the Socialist Alternative to politely move out of the doorway of said orientation. In reply, he called her a "tyrant bitch" and then followed up with "people like you shouldn't be on this campus".
This is just one of many examples of harassment by the Socialist Alternative at UQ. Countless incidents of shouting students down, unsoliciated insults for those who politely decline and in some instances violence. (Eg. an incident where there was violence towards a group of students using what they declared was "their spot")
This petition is in no way political, there are many Socialist aligned groups on campus who are able to go about their business in a reasonable and non-aggressive manner .
We urge students who have been made uncomfortable by the Socialist Alternative to sign this petition. We are asking that they no longer be allowed to stand in the main walkways of UQ without a booking.
