Can Victoria Progressivists Raise £500?

Can Victoria Progressivists Raise £500?

New Zealand students join with students in Australia, Canada, Great Britain, India, Portugal, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States—countries where liberty and encouragement to study remain, even though seriously impaired—to raise funds for the sake of their fellow-students in seventeen other countries who are victims of war.

Students are Prisoners of War
ߦThey call for books to save their minds from "barbed-wire disease" and their hearts from despair.
Students are Refugees
ߦHundreds who have had to flee their own countries are making untold sacrifices to continue their work as students.
Students are Interned
ߦImmobilised for the duration, they are studying to equip themselves for the future.
Students are Dispossessed
ߦIn China and Russia they have migrated to continue their studies in spite of extreme hardship and the obstacles of war.
