Asian university students debate on campus about & # 39; respect for China & # 39; – like a woman a & # 39; dumb pig & # 39; is called and pushed to the ground
- A video has appeared in which Asian students argue at the University of Auckland
- The dispute concerns the controversial proposed extradition law of Hong Kong
- A woman is pushed when she tries to split a scuffle between two men
- The University of Auckland said that intimidation is completely unacceptable
A video has appeared online of men and women arguing about & # 39; respect for China & # 39; on a university campus.
The video was filmed in a food court at the University of Auckland in New Zealand and showed an argument that resulted in a young woman being pushed to the ground.
Student Serena Lee, 27, saw protest signs set up on campus with other activists when a male student made an exception and told her: & Hong Kong is a part of China, if you don't love China, leave China. & # 39;
Mrs. Lee then became a & # 39; dumb pig & # 39; and & # 39; no human & # 39; before one of the men stepped forward and pushed her to the ground.

Mrs. Lee stepped into the confrontation to break it and shouted & # 39; stop fighting & # 39 ;.
The man then pushed forward again and hit her on the floor, screaming & # 39; Get rid of you, a rip-off & # 39; while she fell on the floor in front of him.
& # 39;Physically I am not injured, but inside I am shocked and shocked, & Mrs. told the New Zealand Herald.
The suspended bill has recently been the subject of numerous protests in Hong Kong, as opponents claim that criminal suspects can easily be sent to China.
& # 39; The proposed law in Hong Kong could mean the end of the city as we know it and our individual freedom, but I was astonished when people in New Zealand also tried to close our freedom of expression & # 39 ;, said Lee.
This incident is not an outlier at the University of Auckland, which this year has had a major problem with racial discrimination and harassment on campus.
The Auckland University Students & # 39; Association wrote a open letter in April, tackling white supremacy and a culture of fear at the university, claiming that racial disputes at the university date back to 2013.
University spokeswoman Lisa Finucane said that students should express their views in a way that respects the rights and opinions of others.
& # 39; We are in contact with the students involved and there is a formal investigation going on following a video and notifications sent to the Vice Chancellor and other senior members of the university, & # 39; said Mrs. Finucane in a statement.

& # 39; The Vice Chancellor expects all members of our community to abide by our commitment to academic freedom and freedom of expression. The university makes it very clear to students and staff that bullying, bullying and discrimination are completely unacceptable. & # 39;
The university is investigating the incident and said that they are & # 39; in contact with the students involved & # 39 ;.
A police spokesperson in New Zealand said he had spoken to someone who had made a complaint.
& # 39; We will follow up on this incident and review the images in due course & # 39 ;, said the police spokesperson.
