A video has emerged online of a man being assaulted during the University of Queensland’s student union elections.
According to the ABC the 21-year-old attacker was distributing “derogatory and defamatory remarks about the incumbents.” Campbell Ray, a 29-year-old student party member approached the man which then led to Ray being assaulted.
Speaking to The Brisbane Times, UQ Union president Joshua Millroy stated that “there was a person getting around campus who was abusing campaigners…That person was then confronted about his behaviour and he proceeded to king hit and then continued to attack a campaigner who was involved in the elections.” youtube.com
