Vice-chancellor Professor Ian Chubb says ANU researchers were labelled as “anti-American” after they released a study of Australia’s free trade agreement with the US, which revealed adverse results.
The fact that some people believe publicising the fact that this “Free” Trade Agreement isn’t good for Australia is “Anti-American” seems to speak volumes about their real sympathies, which is really sad given that some of them are our politicians. 🙁
Professor Chubb says he received several calls suggesting the university would be unwise to promote the research.
I’d love to know where those calls were from!
It would be interesting to read a copy of the study, any clues on the identity of the researchers?
There is an article in the Australian that probably says..
[…] guess if John Howard was still around he’d want us to be blocked from seeing un-American content […]
