Trouble in MU paradise.

84 facebook posts later…and over 356 replies…still no response from UMSU.

(Yes I counted them! Mainly because I was procrastinating…but this doesn’t even include all the replies to the comments from each post!)

UMSU’s facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/UMSUunimelb

UMSU is yet to address this issue and to give a response to the growing number of not-so-happy MU students on their Facebook page.

p.s. It’s not cool for you to be deleting and banning people from the facebook group.

What are students saying in response to this?

And a Monash kid even commented! And yes, I am sad we don’t graduate with a hat. Very sad.

This is going to take a REALLY long time before UMSU recovers from this blow.

SSAF in all of this

Farrago has release some interesting info about this saga. It’s an interesting read if you have time.

It’s basically saying that our SSAF had no input into funding this event.

Yes, it has gone to the next level. Students are now calling for the removal of those who voted for the motion at the Annual General Meeting that is happening on April 23rd, 12.30pm.

Interesting.

So far, 467 students are ‘going’

And, we also made the news! But for all the wrong reasons :(

And apparently we also made Channel 9 News, but I can’t find footage of that.
