Our work relies on your support- help us defend academic freedom
Universities are increasingly censoring academics who dare defy the status quo, and it's destroying our liberal education.
Three academics are being investigated by The Royal Society of New Zealand for being among those to put their name to a letter in defense of science. Published in the Listener in July, they claimed that “...Indigenous knowledge is critical for the preservation and perpetuation of culture and local practices and plays key roles in management and policy. However, in the discovery of empirical, universal truths, it falls far short of what we can define as science itself…”.
This investigation is an affront to free speech, and we need your help to stand up against it. We have launched a crowdfunding campaign to defend these individuals and academic freedom from the Royal Society and similarly close-minded organisations.
The academics have been called ‘racist’ and smeared by fellow scientists and are now having to engage lawyers to defend their opinions on science from an institution that should, instead, be encouraging debate and promoting science. This fight is a fight for the right of anyone to peacefully and reasonably voice their opinion.
