The University of Melbourne Student Union recently passed a second motion condemning Israeli apartheid and urging support for the Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions movement against the “settler colonial apartheid state”, after a first had to be rescinded. Gideon Polya reports.

Gideon Polya writes that free speech faltered and falsehood triumphed at the University of Melbourne, after the student union was forced to withdraw a motion condemning apartheid Israel.

The “gas is cleaner” lie is but one of scores of Orwellian falsehoods in look-the-other-way neoliberal Australia, argues Gideon Polya.
