The University of Melbourne
Dear Professor Maskell,We are writing to inform you of a serious on-campus event that has breached the peaceful coexistence of different races and ethnic groups within Australia.
A body of University of Melbourne students recently violated the Racial Discrimination Act 1975 . This group has not only challenged the sensitivities of Australian citizens of Greek descent but aimed to incite a forceful response from Greek-Australian students.
Students from the ‘Melbourne University Macedonian [sic] Student Society – MUMSS’  recently displayed theStar of Vergina  on a red background (a trademarked World Intellectual Property Organization protected symbol of the Greek Government), via a clubs and societies banner funded by the University of Melbourne Student Union (UMSU) . Furthermore, they illegally displayed the symbol as the “flag of the country of Macedonia” [sic] and not the officially recognized, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) “flag of the country of North Macedonia .”
