Written by Jason Wong on 12th August Thanks to everyone who came to our discussion on Friday! Many of you reported that it was something worth learning about. These included the original text of the now-repealed S15C, which violated presumption of innocence in law by placing the burden of proof on students if they were caught with material belonging to an unauthorised group or collective. AUKU is of course not the only law that does this. Any of the other censorship laws that Harapan has yet to abolish, and in the case of scholars, anti-politics clauses in their scholarships, can achieve the same thing.
The law deals with dissident activity among students by threatening to destroy their professional and financial development. Where AUKU came from We then went briefly into the history of AUKU as an act, recalling how at first, when the University of Malaya was established, the law under which it was founded said nothing about student activity.
While the government did occasionally crack down on student protests, the student union worked hard to keep that culture alive among students, and forged strong networks with trade unions, activists and oppressed communities throughout the country. While leftist and non-Malay movements in Malaysia were suppressed, Islamist currents continued to remain active on campuses.
AUKU was passed into law in to standardise the administrative law for all Malaysian campuses, but also contained provisions banning students from being involved with political parties and trade unions.
The remaining prohibitions entered AUKU when it was amended in , in the wake of continued student opposition and in particular the anti-poverty protests in Baling.
We noted that a number of major political figures in Malaysia today including Anwar Ibrahim and Hishammudin Rais got their start as part of the student movement. AUKU remained a crucial tool that kept politically activated students returning from the Middle East under control.
In and , AUKU was amended we suspect, in response to major public protests like Bersih and the electoral threat they posed , each time softening some of the provisions, but the current law is still clearly a tool designed to allow the government and universities to simultaneously pursue student dissidents. But the week prior to this meeting, the Education Ministry announced that it would take up to 5 years, the full term of the current Harapan government, to abolish AUKU.
The Ministry also announced it would convene a member expert panel, which as far as we are aware is made entirely of university bureaucrats, to design the replacement law.
An solid point was raised that so far, AUKU has been implemented in a biased way, always in favour of the prevailing government. Indeed, some Harapan politicians and youth leaders have raised concerns that abolishing AUKU now would give conservative Muslim groups free rein to operate on campuses.
However, we came to the agreement that because the implementation of AUKU has always been biased in favour of conservative groups, whatever resistance AUKU may pose to conservative Islamist groups, it poses far more of a problem to progressives and left groups who not only want to bring in more civil liberties but also want to challenge the racism of UMNO and PAS directly.
Unless there is space on the campuses for students to argue a progressive alternative to the students and voting base that UMNO and PAS are trying to win over, Malaysia will drift slowly back over to the right. Indeed, if it ever comes to the point that students have to mobilise against hard-right forces on campus, as students in the US and Europe have had to do in recent times, AUKU must not be there to stand in their way. At the end of the day, AUKU is responsible for significant disenfranchisement, apathy and political illiteracy among the Malaysian youth.
It smothers space in universities, where the most radical and progressive sections of society often are, to challenge conservatism in the government and in wider society. It prevents students and university staff from governing their own affairs and collectively bargaining for better conditions.
It effectively ensures that the rich and powerful of society, who find their way onto university boards, often by their connections to the government of the day, control what students are allowed to do.
If and when AUKU is gone, that will pave the way for the removal of other censorship and anti-protest laws. With the bottom-up approach that we are advocating in these movements, we want to get as many staff and students as possible involved in the reconstruction of the student and staff unions that once safeguarded the interests of the University of Malaya community in the 60s.
This in turn may well form the basis for the return of trade unionism in Malaysia, and an improvement in working conditions for workers in Malaysia. One guest pointed out that AUKU only affected student activists, of which there are comparatively few in Malaysia. But upon accepting the necessity of bottom-up mobilisation, it is clear that many more students must become active and agitate for university reforms, to spread the demand of student self-governance among the student population.
As part of this struggle, MPOZ invites all students to play their part by joining up , and arming themselves with the political education they were denied at home.

Rencana utama: AUKU bertentangan dengan Perlembagaan Persekutuan Menurut Abdullah Haji Abdul Karim, Pengarah, Jabatan Pembangunan Mahasiswa Dewan Pemuda PAS Pusat dalam kenyataan rasmi dalam laman Harakah Daily berkata meskipun di dalam mukadimah AUKU jelas memperuntukkan bahawa AUKU adalah bertujuan untuk untuk memberikan penubuhan, pengawalan, dan pentadbiran Universiti dan Kolej Universiti dan apa-apa jua perihal yang bersangkutan dengannya, tetapi kita melihat bahawa banyak peruntukan di dalamnya, terutamanya seksyen-seksyen baru yang dimasukkan selepas pindaan pada tahun yang dibentangkan oleh Menteri Pelajaran waktu itu, Tun Dr.
