Racist messages cause anger at Australian universities

Racist graffiti targeting Chinese students has prompted anger after it was found at two locations in an Australian university.

"They really like this country and they do not really want to see this stuff happen."

Ms Wang said she was disappointed the university had taken two days to remove the graffiti, which was found in the international students' lounge and the business school.

"The university is not reacting fast enough," she said.

Second instance

Last week, fake posters bearing the logos of the University of Melbourne and Monash University were found at both institutions.

The flyers read: "Attention, entry into the campus of Chinese students should be strictly prohibited. If violated, you can be deported from the country."

Both universities said the material was fabricated and unacceptable. The flyers have been reported to police.

Student Lisa Lu said on Twitter: "I don't know who would do this on the very first day of the new semester. Even [if] it's a joke IT IS NOT FUNNY AT ALL!"

University of Melbourne Union president Yan Zhuang said he "vehemently" opposed the material.

"The posters have been attributed to a white supremacist, neo-Nazi group which has previously targeted the University of Melbourne," he said.
