We recently heard that the Victorian Division of the National Tertiary Education Union passed a motion at their recent delegates meeting in support of the Boycott Israel 19.
“That the Victorian Division of the NTEU reaffirms the right to protest in a public place and calls on the Government to drop the charges against the 19 non-violent protesters who were arrested during a peaceful protest on the 1st July 2011. The Division also condemns the use of kettling and anti-union besetting laws.”
