    • Protests Galore!
      • 21 Apr 2008
      • Salient
      • Between the 10th and 12th of April, Wellington experienced three notable protest actions: a $10 billion student debt day march on the Thursday, a pro-cannabis smokeup on parliament lawn on the Friday, and anti-Labour party protests outside the town hall on Saturday. These protests can be categorized as gold, frankincense and meh: gold for the debt march, frankincense for the smokeup, and meh for the anti-Labour protest (since it involved too many issues to be neatly summed up by one pithy word).

    • Film school closure receiving national coverage
      • 23 Mar 2008
      • Salient
      • The proposal to close Victoria’s Film programme to create a Cinema Studies programme is receiving growing national media attention, as two protests and a forum with University management earlier in the month contesting the closure have so far appeared meaningless. The closure of Victoria’s film programme adds to the proposed closure of Canterbury’s Film Studies and American Studies programmes, causing growing alarm for staff, students and the New Zealand Union of Students’ Associations (NZUSA).

    • Policing the Wellington Night
      • 10 Mar 2008
      • Salient
      • Despite Wellington’s café dwelling art appreciating ‘cultured’ reputation, the 2006 crime statistics have Wellington taking out the top spot for reported rapes in New Zealand.

    • Gardening in Aro Valley
      • 2 Mar 2008
      • Salient
      • Kermit the frog said it first: It’s just not easy being green. An unlikely oracle, maybe, but perhaps we should credit the amphibian muppet with foreseeing just how difficult it is to be eco-friendly in a consumer-driven society. Well… Maybe. Charles Barrie, Victoria ecology graduate and organizer of the upcoming Te Aro Community Gardeners’ Solidarity Tour, concedes that there are difficulties in being eco-friendly.

    • The Devil’s Advocate: In defense of the Hutt
      • 24 Feb 2008
      • Salient
      • Where are you from? Such a loaded question and one I am now always hesitant to answer. All the implications it has of how you will be perceived from that moment on and the idea that somehow that town’s culture will have shaped you. Growing up in Maungaraki I considered myself a Hutt dweller by virtue of the fact my school, job, and shopping mall were all in the Lower Hutt CBD.

    • Pub Safety Review
      • 17 Feb 2008
      • Salient
      • So I’m Melissa Barnard VUWSA Welfare Vice-President at Vic and a few weeks ago I put to Tristan (Salient’s fearless editor) an idea that while students should drink responsibly, the reality is that when they drink, most students drink to get drunk. With that in mind I and the Activities Officer (Fiona McDonald) from VUWSA went out on the town to have a safe, but drunken, night out.

    • Having a Mayor: a student’s guide to the Wellington local elections
      • 30 Sep 2007
      • Salient
      • However, when it comes to local elections, it’s commonly considered that council chambers are for second-rate politicians trying to supplement their incomes and egos. As a result, the vast majority of Wellingtonians do not vote in local elections. Salient Feature Writer and Political Reporter Rob Addison interviews nine of the 11 mayoralty candidates to find out why Vic students should take notice of this year’s mayoralty race.
