The cake attack on SVP National Councilor Céline Amaudruz (43) is still busy in Geneva. So far there have been no pictures of it. But now the Vaud section of the young SVP has found a video. This shows the incursion of radical left activists into the debating club of the University of Geneva on December 21 – at least in part.
The activists are said to have tried to throw a cake at Amaudruz when they entered. Neither cakes nor Amaudruz can be seen in the video itself. It is still shocking, because the SVP politician is insulted as a “dirty whore” and even threatened with death. However, after the attackers were thrown out of the hall, the event was able to continue.
Not the first incident
The President of Boys SVP Vaud, Emmylou Maillard, was relieved when asked about the University of Geneva’s decision to report the disturbers. However, she accuses the university management of a “lack of determination”. Because already had last spring Activists hold a conference on transgender children disturbed. Unlike the neutrality debate, the event had to completely broken off been.
At that time, the university later filed a lawsuit. However, Maillard thinks that the rectorate was too lax: “The university should have taken concrete measures right away when the lecture on transgender children was stopped.”
The behavior of the activists is unacceptable for those who value diversity and freedom of expression. “A stop sign should have been put up here,” said the president of the young SVP Vaud. Since this was not done, the radical activists assumed they would get away with it – “and returned to do worse,” said Maillard.
She also regrets that the university is in the process of becoming “a place of unified thinking”. Where people “who step out of line are literally attacked”.
